Eating Tips For A Healthy Digestion
- Do not eat when you are stressed, try to relax before you eat, go for a walk, read a book.
- Chew your food well.
- Eat foods as raw or as lightly cooked as possible.
- Start your meal with something raw or steamed.
- Eat more whole foods that naturally contain the nutrients needed for their digestion.
- Eat more softer fruits such as melons, peaches and berries which will ferment easily as snacks not as desserts after a protein-rich meal.
