Spring Debloat Tips & 3 Drink Recipes


With the change of seasons in our outer environment, our inner environment has is own shifts as well. So as we start to move from the heavier, more comforting foods of winter to the lighter foods in spring, we may experience some digestive discomfort.


One of the struggles and frustrations I hear the most is with "bloating" and feeling full without eating much. This feeling coupled with allergies is enough to lend towards feeling miserable during this season. But it doesn't have to be this way!


You can enjoy this season and use the following tips, recipes, and hacks that I'm going to share below to improve your overall digestion.


Why Does Bloating Happen?

Simply put, bloating happens when we're not digesting our food well enough.


  • Our natural digestive enzymes + stomach acids aren't breaking down the food we eat well AT ALL (and this is most often the case after eating) or we are deficient in them.

  • We have an intolerance to something that we ate.

  • There is undigested food in our digestive tract that is fermenting and causing gas (not very pleasant smelling gas). This often accompanies constipation.

  • We are combining the wrong foods, which is slowing down and impairing the break down of each food we eat, leading to undigested food.


Bloating can also occur more due to hormone fluctuations and underlying gut issues (like imbalanced bacteria, infections, or pathogens).

I outline 8 tips to help alleviate bloating and prepare the body for better digestion in this article here.

Figuring out what to eat/drink and listening to your body can make a world of difference in your journey to debloating and better digestion.


If you're new here, I am so passionate about clean eating and the power of food when it comes to a root-cause, whole-food approach to healing.
