Nutrition: Reset yourself!
By Alysse Anderegg, WAC Dietitian
Need a reboot after last week’s meal(s)? Avoid checking the scale as water retention is common after a few beverages and a salt-heavy meal. Get back on track with smaller portions and plenty of produce. WAC Dietitian Alysse recommends a few particular fruits and veggies that keep post-Thanksgiving bloat in check .
- Pineapple and papaya contain the digestion-promoting enzymes bromelain and papain.
- Celery acts as a natural diuretic to help flush out excess water.
- Zucchini is considered a low FODMAP veggie and recommended for individuals that are prone to post-meal digestive issues.
- Sauerkraut—this fermented veggie should be refrigerated as it is packed with live bacteria that promote a healthy gut.
