7 foods to help you poop

It’s popped (not ‘pooped’) up 3 times this week…


What foods can help me poo / relieve constipation?


So, let’s get things moving with these 7 foods:


1) Beans – They’re not called the ‘musical fruit’ for nothing…


Full of fibre, a source of protein, and even count as a portion of veg.


PLUS…they’re great in stews and soups to bulk them out, make your meat go further and fill you up (which might curb a craving or two)


2) Popcorn – I may be biased here…


Because I love popcorn!


Did you know that popcorn has 2 more grams of fibre in than that ‘super duper food’ oats?


3) Prunes – Just don’t eat too many…


4) Green veggies – Boring, I know…


But they’re full of fibre.


AND


Can help to feed your good bacteria in your gut to boost your immune system and beat that cold


Plus, they’ll fill your plate…


Which might just help ‘trick’ you into eating less high sugar and fatty foods!


5) Cauliflower – A great source of soluble and insoluble fibre (the latter helping things flow…)


CAUTION: It can get a bit windy…


6) Nuts and seeds – Another good source of fibre (and fats)…


Perhaps try mixing in some nuts and seeds into some Greek Yoghurt (which also contains some good bacteria and may help get things moving…)


7) Coffee – I know…It’s not a food.


But, they don’t call it ‘poop juice’ for nothing. 


And…you probably know by now that I love the stuff. 


Plus, it might have a ton of other benefits too

^^^ Your Starbucks isn’t so bad after all, ay?


BUT…


These are just foods.


And as you probably know…


It’s your overall diet THAT COUNTS.


So are you eating enough fibre? 


AKA


Roughage?


Do you know?


And there’s more…



* WATER (or fluids in general) – Because being dehydrated can also be a factor!


* Exercise – Think of your bowels like a muscle. Move. And they might move, too (along with some stomach fat hopefully…)


And finally…


Listen to your body. 


Holding ‘it’ in too often might be causing you to be constipated.
