Want to learn to love your gut and improve your digestive health?

Learn about foods that your body will love and won’t keep you running for the bathroom door. We are going to clue you in on what’s good for your body to help improve your digestive health.

Today there are so many processed foods and not-so-good-for-you ingredients and elements that go into food preparation that our bodies sometimes just don’t love and end up having us head to the restroom more than (or less than) we would like.

In all reality, our bodies were made to digest almost every type of food placed into your mouth. But sometimes our bodies just don’t like what we are feeding it and react in ways that wind up make us feeling sick.

According to health.com, it’s best to avoid foods like fatty meats, to stay away and clear of upset stomachs.

Foods to stay away from:

  • High-fat and fried foods
  • Chili peppers
  • Dairy
  • Alcohol
  • Berries
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee, tea, and soft drinks
  • Corn

We’ve got a list for you below on foods that will leave your stomach and digestive system feeling well and great.


Yogurt contains healthy bacteria that help your gut digest food. Keep in mind that not all yogurts have these “bacteria’s” so make sure to check for live and active cultures on the label.

2. Kimchi

This Korean dish is made with cabbage, which promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon.

Cabbage is a type of fiber that’s not digested, which helps eliminate waste to keep your bowel movements regular.

3.Lean Meat and Fish

Since red meats tend to be fattier, they can be more difficult to break down in your body.
Lean meats like chicken and fish have not been associated with an increased risk of colon cancer like high-fat red meats have.

4. Whole Grains

Whole-wheat bread, oats, and brown rice are all good sources of fiber which helps your digestive system.
Fiber also helps you feel full and can lower your cholesterol. But be careful with how much you consume because if eaten too much it can cause bloating, gas, and other digestive problems.

5. Bananas

Bananas help restore bowel function. If you have diarrhea, it can help regulate your bowel movements.

6. Ginger

Ginger has actually been used for thousands of years as a safe way to relieve nausea, vomiting, motion sickness, morning sickness, gas, loss of appetite, and colic
Consume ginger in moderation because high doses of ginger can backfire and cause heartburn.

Incorporate these 6 foods into your diet and you’ll be loving your gut more than you know. No more uncomfortable bloated tummies. No more upset stomachs. Learn what your body needs and watch your digestive health love what you feed it.
