Let’s talk about digestion. Digestion depends a lot on the nuances of each person’s body. Some people have fast digestion, others slow, or specific issues like IBS. I’m not going to get into the graphic details, but I thought nutrition for healthy digestion would be a great topic to cover.

As always with my wellness series, keep in mind that I’m not a nutritionist or a doctor! Each person’s needs depend on their individual bodies and health concerns.

Tips for healthy digestion:

– Drink plenty of water

– Eat raw veggies, which help cleanse your system

– Try an herbal tea, which can help sooth your stomach and calm nerves. My favorite is mint.

– Regular exercise helps keep your system working properly.

– Eat smaller meals with healthy snacks in between when  you are hungry, rather than eating huge meals. 

– Foods that promote healthy digestion: oatmeal, beans, avocado, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, bran, berries, broccoli, ginger, bananas, cultured yogurt such as Stonyfield Organic, beets, and sweet potatoes
