Avoid Gas Problems After BBQ Time
January 10, 2023
While backyard BBQs and picnics are a great way to celebrate the colder weather with friends and family, typical BBQ fare like paneer tikka and kebabs can sometimes leave your insides feeling a little less than happy. Gas problems after barbecuing can be caused by a number of things, including indigestion, food sensitivities, and overeating.
However, cooking out does not have to be synonymous with stomach problems! Want to know the key to not feeling bloated at your next winter BBQ? Knowing what foods to eat and which to avoid on your plate. Try these simple tips to keep gas and bloating at bay all winter.
Tips For Avoiding Feeling Bloated at Your Next BBQ
Avoid Gassy Veggies That Can Cause Bloating
While everyone digests food differently, there are some vegetables that are known to cause gas and bloating. Common culprits are cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, and onions. Certain fruits like apples and pears can cause problems, too.
Steer Clear of Fizzy Drinks
Bubbly drinks like sparkling water and soda seem like the perfect way to quench your thirst, but it’s not the best choice if you want to avoid bloat. The carbonation can trap extra air in your gut, leaving you with a swollen feeling in your stomach. Instead try opting for lemonade or coconut water to cool down on a hot day.
Skip the Beans
Legumes like chickpeas, beans, and lentils are full of fiber and healthy protein, but some people have trouble digesting and absorbing a specific type of carbohydrate in these foods. As a result, these specific carbs get fermented by bacteria in the colon, creating gas.
Your parents may have told you to eat slowly because it’s actually good for your belly. Eating or drinking too fast can cause you to swallow air, trapping it in your stomach and making you feel extra full.
So those were all the things you can skip to avoid gas situations at a fun BBQ gathering. Sometimes, even all the preparation in the world can’t completely kick gas to the curb. For those moments when it sneaks up on you, keep a sachet of Gas-O-Fast on hand. Its 100% Ayurvedic formula is a 3 in 1 solution for acidity, gas and indigestion that gives quick relief anywhere, anytime. Drinking peppermint tea may also help. However, If you experience gas frequently, it may be a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
