Banana Blueberry Smoothie
While the majority of us associate smoothies with breakfast, if you’re craving dessert by the end of your day this treat will come in really handy. Made out of greens, pear, and bananas, this yummy drink will prevent constipation and fluid retention because of the high potassium and fiber content.
Made with only strong coffee and unsalted butter, this drink is very user-friendly and effective in beating constipation. Coffee naturally stimulates colon activity while butter can help keep you full and less inclined to reach for unfilled calorie sweets. The main element is to avoid adding any creamers or sweeteners to the drink to keep it tummy-tox approved. Trust us, if you are using high quality coffee beans you won’t even miss the add-ins. Just make sure to drink plenty of water later on to stay hydrated.
Yogurt With Flaxseed
If you want to take your yogurt up a notch all you need are flaxseeds. Certain yogurts have probiotics within them to aid digestion and keep your stomach bloat-free, so pairing this super food with fiber-rich flaxseeds is guaranteed to prevent constipation and get you back on track.
Almond Butter Oatmeal
If you love eating oats as a snack, you’re in luck: oatmeal is packed with insoluble fiber, which helps your stool pass faster. The next time you’re feeling constipated or simply want a snack that will warm you up and keep you full, make simple oatmeal (the flavored options have too much sugars and additives), and toss in a dollop of protein-rich almond butter for good measure.
