Ah, bloating. That feeling of being full and uncomfortable that drives us all insane after a hearty meal. It can be caused by various factors like overeating or excessive gas in our digestive tract. However, some foods tend to trigger this pesky problem more than others.
The good news is that not all food choices lead to bloating! In fact, there are a plethora of options that do not cause any discomfort while still bringing satisfaction and nourishment.
So, without further ado let’s dive deeper into the world of what foods do not cause bloating? And prepare yourself for some epic surprises along the way!
Buckle Up For Some Fruits & Veggies
Fruits and vegetables often get accused of causing stomach issues due to fiber content, but surprisingly some have been proven otherwise!
Cucumbers: A Cool Option That Keeps You Lean
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the humble cucumber? So juicy yet so slimming at the same time! These green machines serve as an excellent option when it comes to reducing bloat.
Not only are cucumbers water-rich giving you hydration on those hot summer days but also lack significant carbohydrates or fermentable sugars- the primary culprits behind gut problems(ouchh). Load up your salads with these crunchy giants for added flavor without added hassle!
Try This- Cucumber Water Infusions:
- Plain and simple lemon-lime infused
- Mint medley goodness
- Raspberry sweetings
- Summer Sangria mocktails
Grapes: Tiny But Mighty Detoxifiers
These tiny bombs pack a punch like no other with their antioxidant properties making grapes one reliable choice for detoxifying early on in life(I am sure you’re happy mom)!
The bonus point – they contain mostly glucose and fructose (simple sugars) which do not cause fermentation of bowels.
Try This- Roasted Grapes:
- Sweet & spicy blend seasoning
- Caramel drizzle topping
- Savory herb-infused
Zucchini: The Versatile Go-To
Zucchinis deserve much more than being just a pizza topping or part of an antipasti spread. Add them to your diet plan as they will amaze you with their ability to diminish the bloating woes.
The wondrous tip – its low fructose content that doesn’t stay around in your digestive system!
Try This- Baked zucchini boats:
- Slice ’em up
- Spoon out seeds
- Fill with protein and sauce – (voilà, if this isn’t comfortable, I don’t know what is!)
Let’s Add Some Protein To Our Plate
Consuming excessive amounts of animal-based products might result in digestive issues[OUCHHHH], but there are still ways to incorporate sufficient protein without worrying about bloating up all day long(YOU’RE WELCOME)!
Chicken Breast: Light Yet Mighty Proteins
Chicken breasts rank high on nutrition charts for numerous reasons- rich supply of essential amino acids, low-fat meat contributing less gaseous build-up in our bodies etc.
Tip for consumption – opt for grilled chicken breast made at home rather than opting from fast food stalls serving unequally marinated chicken (Nope Nope Nope). Cook it up with some simple spices and sneaky sauces tailored(hiddddennn) according to your taste buds like a real gourmet would!!!
Try This – Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
1 lb boneless/skinless chicken breasts
3 garlic cloves, minced [WHAT’S NEW?!]
¼ cup yellow mustard
2 tbsp soy sauce
⅓ cup honey (OR cauliflower syrup if you’re feeling fancy)
Shrimp: Add Some Seafood To Your Diet
Seafood marvels like shrimp are an excellent source of soluble fibers and low in fats encouraging digestive wellness.
In a serving of 100 gm, Shrimps typically serve the following energy and nutrient mix:
Surfing with almost no fat tails to leave you bloated!
Proteins worth 28 grams (We know now why Popeye ate seafood)
Try This- Lemon-Garlic Grilled Shrimp:
1 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled/deveined, around 16-20 per pound
3 cloves garlic minced [WHY NOT?]
Juice from one lemon or citrus fruit of choice
2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped(hallelujah)
Salt/pepper according to your cravings!
Dishes That Don’t Dish Out Gas
Our tongues often crave some spicy-hot food which could come at a cost – gas accumulation. Let’s see how we can still feel satisfied while experiencing no bloat bombs.
Rice Paper Rolls – Bring On The Freshness
Rice paper rolls require minimal preparation and less oil-rich ingredients – this certainly checks out as a YES for bloating-free dishes! Mix veggies with raw shrimps whilst wrapping them up in rice paper followed by dipping sauce on top!(Hooo-laaalaaaaa!)
Try This – Vegan Spicy Peanut Sauce:
A nutty mish-mash wouldn’t kill anyone Check it out:
A tablespoon of peanut butter.
One teaspoon dark soy sauce is added.
Sesame seeds chili paste according to your preferences!!
Enjoy making these healthy DIY rolls that will have everybody munchin’ all evening long!
Tacos Without Guilt Trip
All those Taco Tuesdays need not end up causing any unhealthy bowel blues. Shift towards healthier meats like grilled chicken/turkey mince beef and limit the amount of cheese, sour cream to reduce unnecessary fats.
Try This – Grilled Chicken Soft Tacos:
1 lb. chicken breasts
Lettuce/traditional taco toppings as desired
Small-wrap soft whole-grain tortillas
Bloating should not stand in our way of enjoying delicious food. Rather opt for dishes that boost gut health whilst packing up flavorsome delights.
In conclusion, bloating does not have to be part and parcel (nor do acid refluxes). By incorporating meals like grilled proteins or veggies taking low-fat options from places commonly overlooked such as cucumbers and grapes will keep you satiated without any unnecessary discomfort! So let’s take a breather(release some gas too), choose healthier meals, savor the process of cooking & enjoy every freaking bite!
