Gut-Healing Banana Smoothie

Have you ever had the stomach bug?

The. Worst.

What about a gastritis flare up? Just feeling a little queasy? Constipated? Or maybe you can’t keep much down?

I know that feel all too well and it can be a little anxiety-provoking to reintroduce food. Especially if the “BRAT” diet you’re supposed to follow doesn’t work for you if you have a digestive disorder and can’t tolerate rice or toast.

I created this very plain, but tasty banana smoothie this week after a nasty gastritis flare. And it was so yummy! Plus, I felt great hours later. Once you think you are past the “hump”, so to speak, and are ready to try food again, here is a very simple smoothie recipe you can try and let me know how you did with it!
