3 foods that help with digestion

Hi everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.

To help with digestion here are 3 powerful foods that can do the job:

1. Chia Seeds are high in dietary fiber great for digestion and healing digestion issues. Chia seeds are known to be soothing for the digestive system in eliminating toxins.

Swallow chia seeds whole, or add chia seeds to cereal, smoothies or juices. Here are 2 of my favorite recipes using chia seeds, Chia Seed Cereal with Almonds and Strawberry Chia Seed Jam.

2. Beet is rich in fiber and is known for maintaining the proper flow of food through the digestive tract. Beet can lift all compacted waste that is stuck to the bowel walls and promotes a healthy gut lining and smooth muscle fiber function, which encourages normal and regular bowel movements.

Eat them raw and whole or juice them. I like to juice them. Here is a recipe for a classic Beet Juice:

3. Pineapple contains proteolytic enzymes such as bromelain that possess anti-microbial and anti-ulcerative properties, and that helps break down other foods and assimilate their nutrients.

Snack on pineapple as it is or add it to a juice, here is a recipe for Pineapple Beet Juice: 

Makes: Juice for two

1 pineapple
1 small beet
1 small knob of ginger (large thumb size)

1. Cut the skin off the pineapple. 
2. In a juice machine, juice the pineapple flesh (not the skin), beet and ginger!

Other benefits:
