Eid is a time to celebrate, meet friends and relatives, have fun, and above all it is a time to gorge on delicacies. With mouth watering dishes all around, it is very difficult to keep ourselves away from the rich and tasty dishes. Sometimes we overeat and this can upset our tummy. It can result in acidity, heart burn, gas, loose motions and pain in the stomach.
So today let us talk about some ways in which you can eat the delicacies and take care of your tummy as well. All the animal based food items that you have like the kebabs and the tandoori items can cause acidity in the body. Eid is a time when having biryani is a must. This food item is also a comfort food for some people.
Make sure you have yogurt with all these food items. Yogurt contains healthy bacteria that help fight diarrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome. It also helps to cool down the stomach. With all the chillies and spices that you consume, make sure to have yogurt.
Also have lots of salads with your food. Eating cucumber is a must. It will help you to get relief from gas, heartburn and acidity. As cucumber is high in fibre and water content it will help to flush out the toxins from the body and aid in digestion.
If you are health conscious, make sure to have a green smoothie once during the day to calm your system. Make sure that the smoothie is full of greens like kale and spinach and also add lemon juice and ginger to it. Lemon juice and ginger will speed up your digestive system. The smoothie will also provide you with top quality nutrients like iron and vitamins A, C, and K.
Also before a heavy meal, try to have a soup. This will also stimulate your appetite and help in digestion. Try these above-mentioned tricks and you are sure to take care of your health this Eid.
