7 Ways to Banish Belly Bloat

7 Ways to Banish Belly Bloat

Add energy to your life


Here are my favorite drinks, smoothies, and recipes.

But before that, check out some of my secrets on how I stay fit, even after birthing two babies!

The Power of Food & Digestion

In order to lose weight, look fabulous, and feel amazing, we need to eat the “right foods”. Yes, you actually need to eat more to lose weight. But finding the “right” move is key. Your body needs food for fuel, but it also needs that food to be the right fuel for your unique body.

In my practice, I focus on helping you find the foods that either serve as fuel for the body or create inflammation in the body. When food inflames the body, you may experience bloating, acid reflux, headaches, sinus issues, weight gain, arthritis, skin problems, and disease, to name a few. I am in the business of disease prevention.

Your Daily Drinks to alkalize and get rid of the bloat

A simple day in the life of clean eating should include these:

Upon waking, drink a Lemon Elixir

2 cups warm or room temperature water
Juice from 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar
Pinch of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon raw honey OR a couple drops of stevia
(use stevia if you are on a yeast cleansing diet or low sugar diet)

~ stimulates digestion, releases toxins from the liver, and jumpstarts your digestive enzymes

Mid-day, drink a Cranberry Elixir

2 tablespoons cranberry concentrate (I prefer Knudsen’s, if available to you)
6 ounces of room temperature water
(feel free to add stevia or 1 Tablespoon raw honey to the water for a sweet treat)

~ great for flushing the lymphatic system and cleansing the bladder and kidneys

Before bed, drink a Chlorophyll Drink to alkalize

1 Tablespoon chlorophyll in 12 ounces of water
Juice from 1 lemon

Don’t have a juicer? No problem.

Try the Chlorophyll Drink.

In my own life, I have come to love anti-inflammatory foods because I want to feel good. I eat chlorophyll rich foods daily. You may be wondering what chlorophyll is and why I have been sneaking this amazing superfood into my children’s drinks since they were born. Chlorophyll is an amazing cleanser, blood nourisher, detoxifier, and a superfood because it can heal.

Chlorophyll can actually build red blood cells, remove heavy metals from the body, eliminate bad breath, and improve digestion. In addition, it is a prebiotic, because it creates the proper garden in your belly for good bacteria to thrive. Amazing right?

Chlorophyll is found in all leafy greens, but my favorites include kale, collard green, parsley, cilantro, and spinach.  I juice daily, which has been amazing for healing my own digestion and personal health problems.

My Simple, Favorite Juice Recipe

A Simple Green Tonic

1 cucumber
5 celery stalks
1 apple, cored
3 kale leaves
Handful of parsley + cilantro
2 chard leaves
Juice of 1 lemon

Juice the fruit and veggies, and then stir in lemon juice

Great, Nutrient-Dense Smoothies

Blackberry Cinnamon

1 cup frozen blackberries
1 cup water, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, or rice milk
14 avocado
1-2 Tablespoons ground flax seeds or chia seeds
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 handful of spinach
Splash of vanilla extract
Stevia to taste (optional)

Chocolate Bliss Smoothie

1 cup unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, or rice milk
1 frozen banana
2 cups of chopped spinach
2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
1 Tablespoon almond butter
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Handful of ice
Stevia to taste (optional)

Healthy Snacking

Another key component of feeling good throughout the day is keeping your blood sugar stable. You may find that 3 meals a day works for you, while your best friend or partner thrives with 6 mini meals a day. Finding what works for your unique body is key to having energy in life.

Try some of my favorite Healthy Snacks, if you are a hard-core snacker:

  • 14 cup raw seeds or nuts
  • 1-2 Tablespoons sunflower seed butter, almond butter, hemp seed butter, or pumpkin seed butter on celery sticks
  • 1 sliced cucumber with sea salt + a dash of cayenne
  • Fresh figs + ½ cup dairy or non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 apple, 12 banana, 12 cup grapes, grapefruit, kiwi, orange, pear, persimmons, or tangerine
  • 12 avocado with sea salt + watercress + dandelion leaves
  • Raw veggie delight:  carrot, celery, cucumber, red pepper & 2 Tablespoons hummus
  • 14 cup of cultured veggies with 2 Tablespoons of dulse flakes (buy them at Whole Foods)  – wonderful for your adrenals, thyroid, and metabolism, plus chock full of vitamins and minerals. This is SUPER for optimal digestion!
