50 Tips To Positively Affect Your Health: Day 3 – Nutrition


Some tips I do not mention here as far as Nutrition goes that I have tried:

NuGo Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Pretzel -Amazon.com

Organic Valley, Organic Balance, Organic Milk Protein Shake Amazon.com.  Available in Chocolate or Vanilla

https://www.graze.com/us/  Graze.com has a $13.99 monthly subscription option where you can pick and choose the kind of snacks that fit your diet.  If you like them, you can choose the Love It option to make sure its sent to you again, or you can choose the Trash It option to make sure you never receive that snack again. The best part is you can skip a month or cancel anytime.



Doterra vitamin supplements.  In past videos on YouTube, I have mentioned that I have tried to take various multivitamin supplements with some unpleasant side effects.  Last year, I tried the Microplex Food Nutrient Complex which has a number of vitamins plus a tummy tamer blend (Peppermint, Ginger and Caraway), which has enabled me to keep taking it daily as I have had no unpleasant reactions or IBS flare up.


Fiber is important in anyone’s diet.  When you have Diverticulitis or IBS-C (constipation dominant), fiber is a necessity.  When you can’t eat mango, banana, blueberries or garbanzo beans which are my favorite.  The next best thing is a cereal or oatmeal.  Quaker Instant Oatmeal high fiber, is quick and easy.  You can get this on Amazon if you want to buy in bulk, or pretty much any supermarket.

When you suffer from IBS-A (constipation and diarrhea), you need something that will both clog and unclog the pipes, if you will, as needed.  Bobs Red Mill Cereal Hot High Fiber Cereal which contains Flaxseeds, is perfect for this.  You can get this at most supermarkets, health food stores and of course…Amazon.com.

Fresh veggies whenever possible are also a great source of fiber to keep you full longer and get you going not to mention some other vitamins and nutrtients like Beta Carotene, protein, B Vitamins and Potassium.  My favorites are:
Collard Greens – I use them in my Meat Beans and Veggie Stew 
Carrots- I usually eat them raw with Hummus
Baked Sweet Potato
Cannellini Beans (I use these in my Meat Beans and Veggie Stew , Cassoulet and Butternut Squash Soup

Bone Broth is choc full of goodies for your body, provided you have the time to make it fresh, or can eat the ones they sell in supermarkets or in other places like https://barneysb

onebroth.com/ .  I cannot any of these, so I tried Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein powder mentioned in the video above.  There are certainly other brands that you can try, but the one I have tried thus far is the Chocolate packet.  It’s better to purchase sample packets as opposed to a big can of it.  For free sample, try Ancient Nutrition.com







Heathers Tummy Care is special for people with IBS.  I did try this, and while it didn’t work for me, it may work for you!  Remember that IBS is as unique as a thumbprint.  Everyone’s triggers, symptoms, no no foods, and yeah I can eat this foods can be different.

I hope this helps.  I’ll keep posting more tips soon!!!
