Foods To Eat When You Are Feeling Bloated

Bloating is when your belly feels swollen after eating. It is usually
caused by excess gas production or disturbances in the movement of the
muscles of the digestive system. Bloating can often cause pain,
discomfort and it can also make your stomach look bigger. If you are
feeling bloated and want to get quick relief, Jumia shares food to eat
when you are feeling bloated.

Asparagus
This long and lean veggie has certain compounds that act like healthy
bacteria, which aid in digestion. Add some lemon juice and fire up the
grill to turn these tasty vegetables into an easy and slimming side
dish.
Ginger
This anti-inflammatory food also has anti-spasmodic qualities. Try
grating it into your favourite marinade, topping a simple piece of
grilled fish or add it to your lemon water.
Yoghurt
Regardless of choosing whole-fat or low-fat, yoghurt gives you a dose of
beneficial bacteria, which helps keep your digestion efficient. If you
still don’t like the idea of plain yoghurt, get creative and add canned
pumpkin, natural peanut butter, or shredded coconut.
Pawpaw
This sweet treat has an enzyme called papain, which aids digestion and
the breakdown of protein. Thinly slice this fruit and couple it with a
thinly sliced piece of grilled chicken for a mini meal, or cut it into
cubes and top with shredded coconut for a sweet treat.
Pineapple
Not just for piña coladas, this tropical fruit contains bromelain, a
digestion-promoting enzyme. Toss some freshly sliced pineapple rings on a
hot grill to dress up a chicken breast or eat them as a delish and
healthy dessert.
