- While cooking, try your best to be creative and add cumin powder and asafetida. Some ingredients to add to your grocery list can be coriander and turmeric powder. These will help your foods become readily digestible.
- Let go of what makes you stop! Therefore, say goodbye to junkfood, fastfood, readily processed foods, and everything else artificial. You might also need to say goodbye to deep frying, preserved and dried fruits and vegetables, cauliflowers, cabbages, as well as dal and some other pulses. Not unless if you want gases and toxins building up in your body! Ditch products made from processed white flour. Avoid foods such as white rice, cheese, potatoes, and sugar, because these contain complex carbohydrates. The more starch, the harder to digest. So, simply stay out of it. You can do it! You have to, if you want a healthier body.
