Why do people living in hotter climates eat spicy food?
Nepal, India are all known for their spicy cuisine.
There is a sensible reason why you should choose to eat a spicy curry rather than a cool salad in this warm weather!
The answer is simple…spicy foods make you sweat! The increase in your body temperature from eating the spicy food can make you feel cooler, by reducing the difference between you and the surrounding air. Which in turn, induces sweat, helping to cool the body down when the perspiration evaporates. Not all curries however will have this effect so make sure that you choose one with a high spice content- you never know this might be your perfect opportunity to try a great spicy curry!
