I talk about digestion a lot I’d say, primarily because it is at the root of so much of our health. Often times clients come to me for completely different reasons, but when we look at all of the symptoms, their digestion is a bit off too.
One of the ways you can stimulate your digestion is through bitter foods. They signal the body to produce digestive enzymes, bile and stomach acid, all necessary (and often deficient) for proper digestion.
According to the 2011 issue of the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition, ‘Bitter compounds in some plants also improve normal rhythmic contractions of the digestive tract, delay stomach emptying and improve satiation’. Sounds good to me!
This salad is a great digestive stimulating recipe, and the cinnamon adds an awesome flavour to it, not to mention helps to balance your blood sugar.
