Eating certain foods will improve the look and feel of your tummy. However, you can eat other foods that will suddenly make you look like you’re 20 weeks pregnant again as you surreptitiously unbutton your jeans.
- Avoid processed foods and bread to reduce your chance of bloating.
- Listen to your body and look for patterns, if it bloats every time you eat certain foods, stop eating that and de-puff the tummy.
- Turmeric, ginger and rosemary are brilliant for an upset stomach and bloating, so use these ingredients in your dishes or simply infuse as a stomach-soothing tea.
Tummy friendly food
You know when you eat something and it makes you feel really sluggish, tired and like you could enter a food coma at any point. Yeah. That’s the kind of stuff you want to avoid. Instead of processed foods that contain refined sugars and other unnecessary ingredients that stir up a chemical storm, keep your ingredients list a simple as possible.
Use fresh ingredients, and for energy, eat protein like eggs, fresh organic meat, fresh fish, green vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli and find natural sugars in fruits like bananas, oranges, apples and blueberries.
These foods will help you feel less tired, have more energy, be able to think more clearly and most of all keep your stomach healthy.
