Plant-Based Diet and Got Gas? Here’s Your Solution!

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Tidbit Tuesday!💫

So, you’re on your 🆕 (or not so 🆕) Vegan  or Vegetarian diet! You’re happy, but here’s the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about: gas, bloating, and digestive problems!😱

Don’t be embarrassed, you’re not alone! But more importantly, don’t give up🙏 on your diet because of your new found tummy troubles, because I have the solutions!👌

I’ve been Vegan🌱 since July 1, 2015, and it’s been for a month now. But, this isn’t my first Vegan rodeo!💁

I’ve turned to Veganism🌱 several times in the past, the longest time being for 2 years. Yeah, 2 whole years✨! But you’re wondering, why did I stop? Because I had horrible gas, bloating, painful stomach cramps, and well, to put it kindly, digestive problems.😰

Back then I didn’t know how to fix that, so I just stopped eating Vegan!😐

Fortunately, now I have 3 solutions to put your Vegan and Vegetarian stomachs to ease!👍

1. Take a probiotic each and every day

  • The best time to take it is in the morning
  • A probiotic will promote the healthy bacteria in your gut, and help break down your nutrient-dense Vegan food.   

2.Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with every meal

  • Digestive enzymes will help you digest all of your beans and vegetables. It will therefore help prevent uncomfortable gas and bloating.   

3. But the biggest solution? Don’t eat FrankenSoy🚫

  • This will include most of your VeganMeats” such as Boca and Morningstar, which typically contain Soy Isolate or Soy Protein Isolate.
  • FrankenSoy containing things like Soy Isolate will irritate your belly, and cause a bulk of your discomfort
  • If you find VeganMeatwithout Soy Isolate, still avoid it! These “meats” are overly processed, so they may still cause tummy troubles. Plus, being overly processed and containing unhealthy additives, they are a poor nutritional choice! After all, health and nutrition is our goal!
  • Also, remember when I said I had horrible digestive problems from my 2 year Vegan Adventure from the past? The biggest culprit was eating too much FrankenSoy‼️ 

  Just to show a few of your Proteins to pick instead❌ of FrankenSoy! 

The bottom line:

  • 👉Take a Vegan Probiotic in the morning!✔️
  • 👉Take a Digestive (or sometimes called Plant) Enzyme with each and every meal!✔️
  • 👎Don’t eat FrankenSoy❌. 👉Stick with: Beans, Tofu, Tempeh, Veggies, Nuts, and Seeds👍!✔️

⭐️These are your new best friends:⭐️ 

 

    Until next time, remember: Have your veggies and eat your cookies🍪 too!
