6 Inexpensive Foods That Aid Digestion
Apparently, surprise lactose intolerance at the age of 28 isn’t uncommon. Being a self-proclaimed dairy Queen of the seven
Digestive disorders are a pretty common dilemma facing our generation. A little bug in our circuitry associated with some unfortunate modernisms, such as the advent of junk food in the name of convenience, or a sedentary workspace in the name of productivity.
If carrying around a bottle of Pepto-Bismol in that chic tote or satchel isn’t Instagram worthy, here are a few gut-friendly foods that you could effortlessly slip into your chaotic routine.
1. The Leaner the Meat, the Cleaner your Cargo
Yes, that sounds like something you would hear from a half man, half protein shake fitness guru. The logic is pretty sound though.
Meats like chicken or turkey breast and Salmon are low in saturated fats and high in protein. In contrast to fatty or processed meats, our bodies are able to digest lean meats with little effort. Making them ideal for digestive health disorders.
2. Baby, Yoghurt me. No more (IBS)
I’m sorry about that title- I’m not pro (biotic) at this.
Yoghurt contains healthy gut-loving good bacteria that regulate the digestive system, kicking gas, constipation and bloating to the curb. Yes, I know that dairy is often the cause of
3. Good Fibre-
What’s brown, hearty, and has it all? If you answered Morgan Freeman you get half a point.

Is there anything edible that isn’t made slightly better with a little sprinkle of this special herb? Sure, it’s a well-known Curry christener and salad supplement, but it serves a wonderful purpose in the prevention of gastrointestinal strife and is an added source of fibre.
5. Fermented not fried
Kimchi, Kefir, Sauerkraut and Kombucha are making waves in health-conscious communities, not restricted to a trendy yuppie’s refrigerator.
The fermentation process involved in making these foods produce
Truth be told, Kimchi, which is basically just spicy Asian fermented cabbage, is invariably delicious. Your colon will thank you for the introduction.
Gwen Stefani’s most catchy song was in actuality, an ode to the Banana and its digestive properties. How appealing. [Hold applause].
This conveniently sourced fruit has a winning ratio of fibre to potassium. It is easily digested and acts as a prebiotic, encouraging the population of good bacteria in the bowel. If that wasn’t enough, banana also does the job of an antacid in relieving acid reflux.
Hydration is an important part of the deal, so remember to drink plenty of water. For everything else, there’s always goat cheese.
