Betterful

Everybody Poops

Or so that's what they say. Many people have a harder time doing it than others. In fact, constipation is a common problem affecting an estimated 20% of the population.

Are we not getting enough fiber? Are we eating unhealthy? What's the challenge? Those are loaded questions and without speaking to a medical professional, who's to say what is going on with your specific situation. 

There are also a ton of remedies out there. Including the likes of laxatives, stool softeners, and fiber supplements like Daily Multi-Fiber. These are easy fixes, yes - but adding these simple foods to your daily to help with the longevity of staying regular.

So here's what we know about these foods. They're so tasty. They're easy to find at the grocers. And, they're easy to eat. Who doesn't love to eat delicious foods that give a better chance at having a good, smooth, and easy poop?

I know I do. 

I'm going to go over 7 actually tasty foods to add to your diet so that adding them is delicious, but also easy. 

Let's get into it. 

These are a few of my favorite things.

Cake. Candy Canes. Sprinkles. Yep- I'm here for it. ESPECIALLY if it's got protein and nutrients in it. 

The holiday season tends to disrupt my normal diet. I've been on a slow and steady health journey over the last year and I'd like to keep myself going strong, even during my weakness: HOLIDAY TREAT SEASON.

Over this past year, I made a really great and simple healthy cake pop recipe that I keep revisiting with different toppings and tasty accessories. So when I was brainstorming which dessert to have in the refrigerator for my sweet tooth this season, using this recipe was a no brainer. 

There's Something About Gingerbread That Puts Me In The Holiday Mood

The smell. The taste. The coloring. For me - anything gingerbread is a sign that the holiday's are coming. 

I've been on this healthy treat kick for a few months now. For me, I can't help but over indulge during the holiday season. I adore all the foods, drinks, and desserts that come with the winter months. I'm also aboard a "get healthier" train so this years treats and recipes are all coming from a healthier stand point. 

If there's a way that I can enjoy my favorite holiday treats but the healthier versions of them - I'm going to do it. 

And that’s where these gingerbread protein energy balls come into play.

Both aid in the digestive process, but they both have very different purposes.  

Probiotics are there to help bring those good bacteria back to the body. They help with balancing the ecosystem in your overall gut health. They’re often marketed as a cure-all for digestive complaints, but the systems that people could be having could be helped with adding in a digestive enzyme supplement. 

Digestive enzymes help break down the food that’s eaten so the body can absorb as many nutrients as possible. Digestive enzymes can help make an immediate difference in digesting a meal. 

Digestive enzymes help digest food. Probiotics do not. Because they work hand in hand together, you can take them with each other. Just make sure to get your doctors thumbs up first!

Coffee and Protein? Just give it to me right now.
