SLUGGISH BOWEL OR CONSTIPATION?
Increasing plants in your diet during the day can help ‘get you moving’ and relieve the bloating that so often comes along with constipation.
These Baked Pumpkin and Chickpea Felafel are so delicious, you wouldn’t even know that they are loaded with plants!
Most people, even those with the 'windiest tummies' can tolerate a small amount of legumes. We recommend starting with a teaspoon of hummus if you are unsure and gradually increasing the amount to establish your threshold level. Dried legumes should be soaked for at least 18 hours to remove most of their poorly absorbed sugars which are responsible for producing gas. Don't forget to discard the soaking water and use fresh water for cooking.
