Foods That Are Easy to Digest

Postby meign » Oct 12, 2010 4:39 am

Those thinking that choices are less when it comes to foods easy to digest are simply wrong. The choices are plenty and one can buy according to taste and liking. Also, these foods mentioned below are nutritious and can be an integral part of a healthy diet.

Green Leafy Vegetables
Vegetables, more specifically cooked green leafy vegetables such as cabbages, are easier to digest. These foods are rich in vitamins and minerals, and unlike high fat foods do not slow down the digestion process. These foods are also an important constituent of weight loss diets. So eating them in the right amount and staying away from junk or fast food can go a long way in reducing those extra pounds.

Rice
Doctor often recommend to include more rice in the diet for better digestion. The contents of rice often help to stimulate the digestion process.

Bananas
One of reasons behind the ever increasing popularity of this fruit, is that it promotes healthy digestion. Studies show that certain enzymes in bananas play a crucial role to accelerate the digestion process. Banana is often given to babies and children with upset stomach as it is beneficial for the digestive system.

Plain Crackers
This is another foodstuff that is considered easy for digestion. Plain crackers also have a pleasing taste and hence people do not think twice to have it in their diet

Gelatin
Gelatin is not only good for digestion, but can also soothen the digestive tract. People with intestinal issues are often asked to incorporate gelatin in their diet.

Toast
It is observed that the body takes less time to digest toasts than fresh bread. So having toast for breakfast, instead of fresh bread is definitely a better option. Read more on easily digestible food.

Meal Size

One of the points to note is that that frequency of meals is also an important factor, that can contribute to easy digestion. Many people commit the mistake of having two large meals in a day. This, in turn causes excessive food consumption and triggers digestion problems such as bloating and nausea. In order to keep digestive issues at bay, an easy solution is to have 5 - 6 small sized meals throughout the day.

On the whole, avoid foods that impair digestion. Instead, go for foods that speed up digestion. Healthy foods easy to digest are something that one can always prefer to improve digestion.

Hi,
Bitter greens are bitter tasting green vegetables. Most people are probably most familiar with radicchio, arugula and collard greens. When we taste the bitter taste, it causes our digestive juices to increase and our body's ability to break down food is increased.

Thanks

I know that usually whenever I eat cereal, that stuff shoots through me withing 30 min to 1 hour.

Foods containing lots of iron can sorta make it hard for you to go.

Fibers usually help digest fast, that's why sometimes when you eat salad or if you do, you find yourself going to the restroom a little more.
