A morning meal high in protein will help keep you full for hours, and one that includes asparagus — like this Spring veggie scramble — is tough to beat. The vegetable helps promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut to aid in digestion and flush excess water and toxins from your body so you'll start the day feeling bloat-free and energized.
A hearty bowl of pasta made with creamy, cashew-based sauce will keep you smiling well into the afternoon. The artichoke in this vegan artichoke, edamame, and lemon pasta salad aids in digestion to keep your belly feeling happy. A healthy dose of lemon and parsley also help you debloat. Opt for whole wheat pasta to add even more digestion-helping fiber.
