1. Salads - One of the best ways to keep you full during this season is by having lots of salad. High on energy, it keeps you going for a long time without making you feel heavy and tired.

2. Fruit Juices - Ditch the soft beverages for something healthier. Instead of sipping on cola the whole day long, choose from a variety of seasonal fruits available during this time to keep you healthy and hydrated. From watermelon to oranges to grapes, there are so many fruits you can select from.

3. Avocados - They not only go in salads but can also be scooped out and eaten along with yogurt. They contain fiber, vitamin B5, B6, C, K, fol-ate and potassium that protects you from harmful summer diseases. 

4. Berries - High on antioxidants, blueberries are a great option for summers. It gives you the right amount of vitamin C that your body requires protecting you from a number of summer infections.

5. Cucumbers - There's nothing cooling than eating a few slices of cucumber when you are feeling tired being in the sun for a long time. They are a great source of beta-carotene, magnesium, potassium which keeps you hydrated during this season.
