Even if you are in normal good health, you still feel it. It is inevitable. You have earned your break from the week’s work and you have had a good workout at the gym. Your meal was not bad. It was wholesome, healthy and quite balanced. And, since it was the weekend, you proceeded to settle down on the couch in front of your big screen TV with your favorite snacks. It could be crackers, crisps or a giant bowl of popcorn to see you through the night.
But later that night, just as you think you are about ready to turn in for the night, you feel an excruciating urge to go to the bathroom. Your stomach was turning. Why, what happened? Was it something you ate? Most certainly. It could have been anything on your healthy plate much earlier in the evening. More than likely it was anything from your late night snacking. Your crisps, crackers or popcorn.
Or your choc chip cookies if your tooth was rather sweet. The problem with all that you ate, even if it was healthy and you were moderate in the quantity you took in is that these foodstuffs all had gluten in it. It does get on your stomach’s nerves. It gives a negative reaction to your stomach’s lining. Fortunately, you can avoid this unpleasantness by turning to organic gluten free crackers, crisps, biscuits, cookies and popcorn instead.
These all make up health snacks that you so richly deserve. You worked hard all week. You have your body a good workout too. And you tried your best to watch what you eat. You deserve that break. But give your stomach a break too. Later in life, it will be thanking you.
