Foods To Eat When You  Feel Bloated

Bloating is when your belly feels swollen after eating. It is usually caused by excess gas production or disturbances in the movement of the muscles of the digestive system. Bloating can often cause pain, discomfort and it can also make your stomach look bigger. If you are feeling bloated and want to get quick relief, Jumia, Nigeria's leading online food ordering platform, shares, food to eat when you are feeling bloated.

Asparagus
This long and lean veggie has certain compounds that act like healthy bacteria, which aid in digestion. Add some lemon juice and fire up the grill to turn these tasty vegetables into an easy and slimming side dish.

Ginger
This anti-inflammatory food also has anti-spasmodic qualities. Try grating it into your favourite marinade, topping a simple piece of grilled fish or add it to your lemon water.

Yoghurt
Regardless of choosing whole-fat or low-fat, yoghurt gives you a dose of beneficial bacteria, which helps keep your digestion efficient. If you still don’t like the idea of plain yoghurt, get creative and add canned pumpkin, natural peanut butter, or shredded coconut.

Pawpaw
This sweet treat has an enzyme called papain, which aids digestion and the breakdown of protein. Thinly slice this fruit and couple it with a thinly sliced piece of grilled chicken for a mini meal, or cut it into cubes and top with shredded coconut for a sweet treat.

Pineapple
Not just for piña coladas, this tropical fruit contains bromelain, a digestion-promoting enzyme. Toss some freshly sliced pineapple rings on a hot grill to dress up a chicken breast or eat them as a delish and healthy dessert.
