“Tons” of sweets, fried foods, alcohol and poor drinking habits. If you too spent the other days eating these unhealthy foods, pay attention. There are simple ways for the body to recover from these transgressions.
Broths are easy to digest, replenish lost minerals and soothe the intestines.
Broth is not only good for the soul…
One of the best ways to get in shape after days of bad eating is to eat soups. Chicken or beef broth is the ideal dish to caress the stomach. All paleo diet enthusiasts are now rejoicing as this type of diet fits into their lifestyle. We can make broth from bones, meat, but also from fish head. “Broths are very easy to digest, replenish lost minerals and other nutrients and soothe the intestines,” Nikki Ostrower, founder of NAO Nutrition in New York, explains to prevention.com. As he further states, the “animal” basis of these soups allows the body to absorb minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, including trace elements, more quickly. The body is also supplied with glucosamine, which is the basic building block of cartilage. Glucosamine relieves pain and has strong anti-inflammatory effects. The broth also boasts other substances that strengthen the immune system, heal the lining of the intestines and regulate blood sugar levels. After days of “overeating” with bad food, it seems like an ideal choice.
“Fast food” for fattening the belly
If you don’t have much time to boil bones for several hours in soup, try a faster option. Prepare salmon on the grill, in the oven or in a steamer. All fatty fish, such as the one already mentioned, as well as mackerel and sardines, contain more than 13% fat. The rarest fat component is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), one of the most famous omega 3 fatty acids. DHA protects the brain, heart, improves memory and is said to help calm the brain after an increased amount of sugar from sweets. Salmon will also help in another way, because of the higher amount of selenium, it will boost the immune system and get you back on your feet. Even in this case, however, it is true that when preparing this sea fish, it is necessary to pay attention to the breeding source. Salmon from the so-called wild breeding, not from farms.
A handful a day and you’re in your own skin
A bloated belly and an irritated stomach can be soothed by walnuts. Just a quarter cup of walnuts offers about 133% of the recommended daily allowance of omega-3 fatty acids. According to a study by the American Yale University, adding 50 grams of walnuts a day to the menu for six months leads to a reduction in sudden feelings of hunger. This tasty food reduces the appetite for the next meal and helps especially in the fight against the so-called wolf hunger. In addition to omega 3 fatty acids, it supplies the body with a sufficient dose of potassium, calcium and vitamins A and E.
