Healing your stomach can be achieved by eating foods that are specific to repairing the gut lining.  The lining of your gut can be compromised when environmental factors like medicine, fast food, too much gluten and lack of abundant nutritious food are in the diet.

When the lining of your stomach is damaged the small, hair-like microvilli become unable to do their job properly. They cannot properly assimilate the nutrients for your body.

When your digestion is impaired for so long,  inflammation, autoimmune disorders, gas and pain are the result.  Bone broth is a great food to help heal the gut lining.  It’s easily digested and contains immune bolstering components that will heal your gut lining.  Enjoy this recipe and make it often!  If making your own is not feasible, try a high-quality store made version like this one:

Eating foods that are gentle on digestion and that can also heal the gut are very important when you have digestive issues.  Feta cheese is very low in lactose and should be tolerated, but you may omit it and substitute a non-dairy protein, like shredded chicken or turkey, if you’d like.  Mint not only may prevent stomach ulcers it can also kill bad bacteria that is responsible for digestive problems.  Resistant starch (heated and cooled rice)  feeds the good bacteria in the stomach creating a better gut microbiome balance.  This Rice salad with roasted zucchini fits the bill!

Make sure your rice is cooled and do NOT reheat this dish.  Resistant starch comes from cooled rice, not heated.
