Poppy seeds are great on a bagel, but they can actually quench your thirst to keep you cool.

Fennel seeds will also help with bringing down your body temp.

Eating spicy foods may make you sweat, but even if you have to dab your brow, the perspiration cools your skin. go for chili peppers, black pepper or horseradish to help you chill out.
