Not everyone likes to think of their colon. Although we know that it is something to keep in check, we rarely make the trip to the doctor to have it checked unless we are already experiencing problems. Your colon is vitally important and maintains over 1 trillion microorganisms that allow your body to, well, dump waste. Sometimes, our colons need a bit of help and thankfully, foods we eat can drastically improve our colon health. Here are just some of the many foods that attribute to colon health.
Beans and Lentils
People often eat beans and lentils as an alternative to meat, but they are much more than just an adequate protein source. They are essentially colon sweepers with high levels of fiber to keep your colon healthy. Both beans and lentils are easy to add into your diet. Foods such as chili and other soups use these ingredients to provide a filling attribute, but can also be an easy way to add them into your child’s diet. They won’t even know they are eating something good for them.
Yes, we have all heard the notion about brown rice. Some claim it does not have the same taste as white rice. You are absolutely correct. It actually tastes better and if you have been avoiding switching to brown rice, try it, you will probably like it. When cooked and seasoned properly, brown rice offers a nutty flavor that is more pleasing than standard white rice in a variety of dishes. It is also a whole grain which is linked to the prevention of colon cancer.
Salmon is everywhere these days and everyone seems to be talking about Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These things are not just a fad either. They actually have shown to reduce inflammation in the colon and lead to better colon health. As with all types of fish, the fresher, the better, so try to avoid canned salmon products where possible as they often include high levels of preservative and sodium which is not good for anyone’s health.
Vibrant Colored Vegetables
Color means something in nature and when eating healthy, doctors now emphasize that eating by color can be more beneficial than an emphasis on one specific food. Vibrant colored vegetables such as broccoli, artichokes, and even carrots have high levels of fiber ideal for keeping your colon healthy. Again, fresh is always best, so take a trip down the produce aisle and fill your basket with vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables.
