WholeLife Matrix: Health & Well Being
“Happiness: a good bank account, a good cook, and a good digestion.”
— Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Having a healthy digestive system helps us to live a long and healthy life. It has been found that our esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon effect how we feel and how well our minds and bodies operate. By eating more fiber from fruits and vegetables, reducing animal protein, processed foods and simple sugars, you will have a healthier digestive system. Here are some tips for foods to eat to optimize your digestion.
1. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is an excellent substitute for butter or oil. It is solid at room temperature and becomes liquid at higher temperatures. Coconut oil also helps to reduce hunger and is great for other uses such as coffee creamer or lotion.
2. Red Beets
Beetroots are packed with magnesium, potassium and fiber, which helps the digestive system to remove waste. So beets are great for helping with digestive problems such as abdominal upsets or constipation. The green tops of beet root also help to relieve your stomach. They contain a lot of beta-carotene, iron and calcium.
The benefits of eating zucchini include detoxifying, filling and hydrating the body in addition to aiding healthy digestion. Zucchini contains a high level of fiber, functions as a mild laxative, and cleans the walls of the intestines.
