If you get hungry easily during rainy days, Nilagang Baka is the best to have especially at lunch. Nilagang Baka is almost the same with Bulalo but has more vegetables. It’s easy to cook, but the simmering of beef bones and ribs somehow takes time. Nonetheless, Nilagang Baka will get you through the rainy day.
Banana does not only boosts your energy but can also put you into a good mood. Eating banana can cheer you up especially during gloomy or rainy days. Banana contains amino acid trytophan plus Vitamin B6 which help the body release seratonin – natural chemical that alleviates depression. This fruit is really rich in vitamins and minerals.
Champorado is sweet chocolate rice that is usually served with milk and sometimes, with salty dried fish known as tuyo during the afternoon. Champorado is made with cocoa powder that has antioxidant flavonoids which maintain lower cholesterol, keep blood vessels healthy and protect brain function.
When the weather is gloomy and rainy, it is the perfect time to have some tea party! Drinking a hot cup of tea will not only make you warm but can also help reduce the risk of heart attack. You may want to try Guyabano tea which is known as a natural remedy in relieving numerous disease and ailments.
If you’re a certified noodle lover, a hot ramen can spice you up on a rainy day! Ramen soup is made from stored chicken or pork, mixed with meat, onions and seasoned salt, soy sauce or miso. You can even increase the health benefits of ramen by mixing it with vegetables, shrimp and grilled chicken instead of of its usual flavor packet.
