As you prepare your menus, your invites, your shopping lists, and your homes for this Thursday’s Thanksgiving Feast – you need to add yet one more extremely vital item to your list – the preparation of your personal tummy. Now you could be considering “what the heck does she mean by that?”
Well, let me ask you this..
…how did you are feeling the last time you ate a vacation dinner that included hors d’oeuvres, wine, bread stuffing, meat, potatoes, cruciferous vegetables, and pie topped with whipped cream or ice cream?
It’s common for people to complain about eating an excessive amount of, however the criticism is usually accompanied by whines about bloating and grunts about pain. This discomfort may be some serious stuff! I do know I have been there! – and I need to do one of the best I can to avoid it – wanting depriving myself all the food. Even when it’s organic and whole – the combining of those foods can play havoc on our gastrointestinal system.
So what can we do to arrange our own tummy for these treats?
Two things – and you may start straight away.
I. – acidophilus
II. – digestive enzymes (Excerpt from Blog November 20)
I. Take your acidophilus or probiotics on a each day basis to assist to populate the gut with some good bacteria – the sort that may help balance the eco-terrain of your internal environment. It is vital to take these on an empty stomach even – in the event you read some labels that say to take with food.
Actually, I actually have found the cheaper acidophilus (the sort they sell in pharmacies or places like CVS) say to take with food. My hit on that is that they haven’t got many or any live cultures in them – in the event that they did, they would not inform you to take with food! Taking a very good quality acidophilus on an empty stomach helps be certain that the bacteria will take and never be diluted with food.
Besides taking capsules of acidophilus/probiotics – there are other ways to get these good live cultures into your belly-Yogurt (preferably plain unsweetened) kefir and cultured foods corresponding to cultured vegetables (culturedvegetables.com).
