It's that time of the year when wedding season is at its peak. A wedding function is incomplete without good food. However, those indulgent food and drinks during this time can have serious implications on your digestive system. Hence, it is of utmost importance to keep your digestion healthy during this time of the year. There are some foods that can help in improving your digestion to a great extent. All you have to do is to just incorporate them in your diet.
While you're attending weddings, make sure that you scout out the healthiest options and snack on them first. Spot the fruit and salad bar counter in the wedding and fill your plate with these. The idea is to feel satiated before indulging in greasier stuff. Once you're done having your dose of fibre-rich fruits and salad, you can always take few portions of other dishes but in limited quantity.
The easiest way to keep the digestive system healthy during the wedding season is to keep your body well hydrated. Make sure that consume at least 2-3 litres of water every day which will flush out all the toxins from your body. To enhance the cleansing process, you can also add sliced lemons, cucumbers and chopped mint leaves to your bottle of water which you can sip on all day.
Avoid eating raw vegetables like broccoli, kale, cauliflower and cabbage as they will lead to bloating. Also avoid processed foods that are high on sodium. Eating potassium-rich foods such as bananas and nut butter can reduce bloating to a great extent.
It's always a good idea to munch on nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts, pistachio and flax seeds as they are packed with nutrients, minerals and healthy fats. At the same time, it will boost your overall nutrient intake to a great extent.
