Foods That Beat Bloating

By Heide Kennedy, Arizona Farm Bureau Communications Intern

Have you ever finished a meal and then you felt all bloated inside? Maybe it was from something that you ate or maybe you overindulged a little. Other causes of bloating could be eating foods that are high in salt, eating or drinking too quickly, or battling digestive conditions.

Whatever the cause, it is definitely an uncomfortable feeling. There are certain foods that can help to relieve some of the pressure that can build up in your stomach.

These foods include:

  • Avocados
  • Yogurt
  • Ginger
  • Cucumber
  • Oats
  • Celery
  • Bananas
  • Mint
  • Fennel
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Grapefruit
  • Turmeric
  • Quinoa
  • Pineapple
  • Lemon

Each of these foods have nutrients that either reduce inflammation in the gut, activate the release of digestive enzymes, or are water and fiber rich, which helps bloats to pass through your digestive system.

Next time that you feel a bloat coming on, or if you know that you are prone to bloating, try incorporating some of these foods into your meals or snacks!
