Happy gut happy life
Feeling bloated? Try these food swaps
it’s summer in the city and Santa’s on his way. While you’re busy performing Christmas miracles, it’s easy to fall off the healthy habits wagon. Along with a little stress (being the designated elf is a tough gig!), there’s delicious temptation everywhere you turn. Another mimosa and a second mince pie? Why, absolutely! Don’t mind if I do!
Careful, though, as your gut may stage a rebellion. That heady combo of festive feasting, partying into the wee hours and running around like a headless chook for weeks on end can catch up with you.
