6 Nigerian Meals That Are Perfect for the Rainy Season

May 6, 2022

The rainy season is upon us, and unlike other seasons of the year, it’s an exceptional one. This season comes with the lethargy that makes you want to lay in bed all day and do nothing. What we eat during this time directly impacts our productivity and need for companionship. 

These Nigerian meals are perfect for this rainy season.

Eba

The rainy season is the perfect season for sleeping, and eba is the ideal meal to induce sleep. When you’re done eating the eba, you won’t remember you’re alone in bed. The type of eba doesn’t matter.

Beans 

Picking beans is an effective way to keep your productivity levels up during the rainy season. We usually want to lay in bed under our sheets doing nothing when it rains. Make it a habit to pick and cook beans to help keep your energy up. This theory has been tested and trusted. 

Pepper soup 

Nigerian mums and aunties have sold us that pepper soup helps with cough and cold. You want to enjoy the weather without catching a cold because of small rain.

Boiled yam and ofada sauce 

Yam and eggs is an everyday meal, but boiled yam and ofada sauce is a special meal for rainy days. Imagine having some boiled yam with ofada sauce with hot milk and milo on a rainy morning. You can kiss your tasks goodbye for the day, but do your tasks matter?

Amala, ewedu, gbegiri and goat meat

Amala is the bad bitch of Nigerian meals. Come rain, come sunshine, she’s the ultimate companion. You can trust amala to stick with you like a friend who stays closer than a brother through the rainy season. For premium enjoyment, buy your amala from your favourite bukka

Your partner 

Please, eat your Nigerian partner out till their eyes roll to the back of their head. It’s the least you can do for them on a rainy day.
