Have you ever had the stomach bug?
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!
- 1-2 Frozen Bananas
- 1-2 Cups of Homemade Coconut Milk
- 1/2 Scoop of Ancient Nutrition’s Bone Broth Protein (you can order here)
- 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon
- Bananas: rich in potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. Supports digestion, heart health, blood pressure, it’s high in fiber, and iron to prevent anemia.
- Coconut Milk: loaded with manganese, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, potassium. Lowers blood pressure/cholesterol, builds muscle, provides electrolytes, improves digestion, manages blood sugar, prevents ulcers, and prevents joint inflammation and arthritis.
- Bone Broth Protein: rich in collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine. Protects joints, supports digestion, maintain healthy skin + nails, supports immune system function, and aids in detoxification.
- Ceylon Cinnamon: rich in manganese, calcium, iron, vitamin K, and antioxidants. Contains anti-inflammatory properties, fights diabetes, protects heart health, protects brain function, fights infections/viruses, prevents/cures candida, aids in dental health, fights allergies, and benefits skin health.
- Mix all ingredients in a blender, using alternative milk as tolerated, and add a dash of honey. Enjoy with a probiotic, if tolerated, to improve digestion. This is the one I use.
