Have you been experiencing belly bloat?
Feeling like your digestion is making too much noise? Gurgle. Gurgle.
Are those shorts fitting a little tighter around the waist?
The last few months I have been working a lot and often that leads to a stressed me. This means my digestion can get wonky. I know what you might be thinking – that I’m a health coach, and I have this all figured out – but I am human too. In my practice, I teach people how to listen to their body and what to do when they feel wonky too. It’s so important to listen to your body. Do you know the signs and symptoms when your body is speaking to you?
For me, I get dry skin and start to have belly bloat. So many of my clients say they have belly bloat even when they do not eat, something that is actually not uncommon for people with digestive issues. As I have discussed in previous posts, healthy digestion is SO important!
Stress inflames the intestinal lining and disrupts the good balance of bacteria in the gut.
This is what happened to me. It was time to restore and rebuild on the quick. QUICK!
Feel like you are passing gas too much?
Feel exhausted for no reason?
Just plain feel like crap?
Time to rebuild and restore your gut health with this smoothie.
Every time I am feeling off, I keep it simple: smoothies, juices, and easy-to-digest soups. There are so many seasonal fresh fruits and veggies for you to play with and explore in your recipes. Again, keep it simple! If you’re thinking, “Soups in the summer?” Yes ma’am! I make some seriously delish cold soups in the summer.
When I am feeling this way, I try to drink one of my meals or snacks. It really helps to give my body a break and get back on track. Check out this smoothie recipe and try it for yourself.
The Healthy Digestion Smoothie
- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 1/4 green apple
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup coconut water (I love fresh, young coconuts if you can find them)
- 1/2 fresh kiwi
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
- 2 ounces of Aloe Vera Juice (An ounce is great at night before bed too)
- Dash of cinnamon
- Juice of one lemon
* I also add an additional probiotic to my normal supplement routine (which already has a probiotic in it). Personally, I notice a big difference when I add the extra. Again, this is what works for me. it’s important to see what works for you. If you have any questions about probiotics or supplements, I welcome you to contact me.
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender.
