papaya-2_opt

With so many parties and reunions you attended over the holidays, you’re probably feeling full from all the eating and drinking you had. While excessive eating and drinking may seem inevitable these days, there are food and drinks that can take away feeling of discomfort, aid in digestion and relieve bloating.

Here are some food and drinks you can try, according to registered nutritionist Rob Hobson.

1. Papaya and Pineapple

Papaya and pineapple are tropical fruits that contain enzymes called papain (papaya) and bromeliad (pineapple) that digest proteins. Although evidence for its effectiveness needs further support, it is believed to be a healthy appetizer or dessert to eat with a heavy meal.

2. Dark green, leafy vegetables

The fiber content of green vegetables such kale or spinach aids with digestion. Moreover, they help increase bile flow through the liver, making it easy for the body to get rid of waste products.

3. Probiotics

A lack of good bacteria in your gut may lead to bloating. This is why it’s best to maintain a healthy gut by including probiotics such as live yoghurt which has beneficial strains of bacteria like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria.

4. Skimmed Milk

Drinking skimmed milk can prevent heartburn and reflux, which are common effects of excessive eating of high fat foods.

5. Beans and Pulses

Rich in soluble fiber, beans and pulses can prevent constipation, usually caused by rich foods and alcohol, and help improve gut transit. Keep in mind that beans and pulses are high-fiber foods that need to be consumed slowly to avoid bloating.

6. Golden Linseeds

Golden linseeds are high-fiber food that can combat symptoms of wind, bloating, constipation and diarrhea. You can add one tablespoon of golden linseeds to soups, stews, cereals, porridge, casseroles, yoghurts and desserts.

7. Oats

Packed with high level of soluble fiber, oats can help those suffering from acid reflux, wind bloating, constipation and diarrhea.

8. Ginger or Chamomile tea

Sipping ginger or chamomile tea between meals may prevent heartburn and reflux by soothing inflamed gastrointestinal tissues and decreasing oesophageal spasms.

9. Globe artichoke extract

Containing cynarin that encourages production of bile that improves digestion of dietary fats, globe artichoke extract can reduce symptoms of indigestion like nausea, wind and stomach pain.

10. Water

Don’t underestimate the power of water particularly if you have overindulged in alcohol, which can cause dehydration.

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

Published

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

We often see children playing on streets, unattended by their parents. We tend to consider them homeless as they spend the whole day asking for food from passersby. Considering that they aren’t home and not with their parents means they are not properly taken care of. And it sometimes breaks our heart knowing that innocent young kids experience such.

Parenting is a big responsibility. With the growing population in our country, a man opens an awareness and hits us with reality about having so many kids.

Shaun Manzo

Shaun Manzo, the policeman who shares his experience on how he bumped into a playful kid who stays often in the busy streets of Boni, Mandaluyong. He started his post with a disclaimer, not to brag but to just open awareness to parents to refrain from having kids more than they can take care of. Mazo said that every child deserves to be loved and be taken care of.

Diego

According to Shaun, his heart breaks for the kid who he always sees roaming around his assignment area in Boni Mandaluyong. He usually spots the kid wearing no clothes and slippers. Shaun often sees the kid roaming around McDo near Boni MRT. One time, he asked the kid which food he wants to eat in McDonald’s. The kid then points his fingers at a toy. Right there and then, Mazo ordered a happy meal for the kid.

Mazo found out that Diego lives around Boni area and they are 9 kids in the family. He gave a pet name to the kid by calling him “Diego” (pertaining to a character in Dora the Explorer). Being far away from family, he found a friend in Diego. The kid sometimes calls him “Papa.” According to Shaun, the kid reminds him of his nephew whom he misses already. Diego, despite not given with proper needs from parents, stays cheerful and smart.
