3 foods that digest food immediately {Health}

Sometimes I eat so much unknowingly and suffer with a stuffed and over-filled stomach tending to burst. Recently, I have found ways to reduce the uncomfortable feeling with the help of following three foods which can be had right after the meal. They empty your stomach in a jiffy by boosting your metabolism and making you damn hungry in the next two hours!!

Green Tea
On top of my list is this one coz you can have this anytime of the day whether you are stuffed or hungry or whether you feel like munching junk or just want to sip some water. Also, being hot, it relaxes the mind as well. A glass of green tea can make your tummy feel lighter in just about 15 minutes. 
You might say how can I have water over a filled tummy? Well, you need not gulp down the tea. Boil the water, brew the tea and sip it slowly. Trust me, its extremely relaxing, just as much as a body massage. And, do check out how to make green tea properly unless you love the bitter taste.
Ginger Tea
Well, not really my favorite but one of my colleague vouches by this. Now, there are two versions of this tea. One is the {ginger boiled in water} tea and another is the regular milk tea we make at home. If you are just boiling ginger in water, you can have it right after the meal and ginger is amazing for its potent anti-oxidants.
But, you can not have the milk tea immediately. You need to give it a half hour to one and then have a small cup of this tea. Make sure sugar is less and ginger is more! And, your food will digest off in one hour!!
Reducing the bloating and improving digestion is one of the prime reasons for this spice to be an inherent part of the meal. And, since I have discovered that chewing fennel is extremely soothing for the stuffed tummy, I have never missed a chance to pop some. Btw, stay away from the sugar coated fennels as they tend to pump more sugar into the system than the goodness of fennel!!
A TIP: Try not to drink any fluids immediately before meal. If you do feel thirsty, keep a glass of warm water by your plate. Warm water helps with the digestion process, I believe!!

      I got dried spearmint from mountain rose herbs. Pcos is the reason why I got it.
      They do lower abdomen sonography to detect pcos i.e both ovaries and bladder

    – love the green tea mand fennel method. Green tea works the fastest, as per my experience. Was plying it during the entire holiday season. Also, fennel boiled in a cup of water and cooled overnight and then strained and had in the morning eorks as good as any of those anti-acidity or hyperacidity capsules. It simply soothes the tummy and rids acidity & flatulence for the entire day and if boiled alongwith some ajwain (catom seeds) helps in weight loss. All the best remedies actually are simply sitting right there on our kitchen shelves! :-)

    And Swati, you could try the Fabindia home site. They have a great collection of teas. I found them worth a try.

      I keep the green tea in water for never more than 2mins even though at the back of the pack it reads 3-4mins. And I always keep water temp between 70-75deg.. Increasing water temp beyond this range or infusing leaves for more than 2mins, completely changes the taste. It tends to get more bitter..
