In light of the feast happening across Canadian dinner tables this weekend (ie Canadian Thanksgiving), here are some tips to help increase the digestibility of food.

  • soak nuts before adding to dishes
  • sprout legumes before cooking them

Both these practices help increase the bioavailability of nutrients and render these foods easier to digest.

  • have an apple cider vinegar cocktail (helps stimulate hydrochloric acid production for digestion) – 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in 1 cup of water
  • drink lemon water for its cleansing effect on the liver (the quarterback for fat digestion) and its alkaline effect on the body (more alkaline, less inflammation)
  • consume probiotics (mainly in fermented foods) to promote healthy gut flora
  • spice up your life and your digestion with ginger, cinnamon and cardamom (sounds like a recipe for pumpkin pie!)
