Banish the Bloat Green Juice Elixir

Even after you get your gut garden sorted, it's important to be aware there may be days/times in future when you eat something that's a little iffy, or experience a stressful situation which can directly result in the dreaded bloated belly.
.

.
Meditation & deep breathing exercises are fantastic de-bloating devices when bloating is caused by stress. Don't forget your gut is your second, most important brain when it comes to your emotions and mental health!
.
But when your bloating is food related?
.
On rare occasions when I eat out - even after I ask the waiter to tweak ingredients to suit my dietary needs - I find I react quite badly when the overall quality of food is poor, the chef hasn't made any of my requested changes (because: ego) and/or the meal includes highly processed, cheap ingredients and rancid oils the restaurant chooses to use (and not tell their customers about) 
.
SIDE NOTE: similar to most conventional medicine doctors, did you know most chefs have zero nutritional training/knowledge which means they don't always have your best health interests at heart. Sad but true ‍♀️
.
In situations when I'm hit with a case of bloated belly, I go straight to the juice recipe below which I created to support breakdown and elimination of all the bad bits stuck in your system.
.
I hope it provides you with all you need - great in the fridge for up to 3 days, just shake it well before serving
