Kitchen Secrets: Local Superfoods to Try This Summer

The Month of April officially signals the beginning of the summer season. While hydration and keeping the body protected from the sun are important for every individual, it is also necessary to incorporate the correct food and nutrition into our daily dietary needs. By correct food, we don’t necessarily mean only the healthier food which is free from preservatives and added sugar. Rather, we advise incorporating season-specific foods, which will not only provide you with the nutrients you need but rather also help your body adjust well to the seasonal changes. We at Sortizy have compiled a list of summer foods, which will bring a unique taste and give you the correct nutrition for this season!


1. Sattu


Sattu, or roasted gram flour, is an amazing superfood that you can consider incorporating into your diet this summer. Slowly gaining a reputation as a superfood, Sattu is a great source of proteins, micronutrients, carbohydrates and other essential vitamins and minerals. The best part of this superfood is that it’s widely available at an affordable price. It is also a very versatile ingredient that can be used for cooking as well as summer drinks for great skin and hair.
