Dr Oz: 10 Day Tummy Tox Recipes
Why continue to struggle with your zipper when you can solve the problem the right way? Dr Oz and JJ Smith revealed a 10-Day Tummy Tox to boost digestion and ease constipation. They kicked things off by sharing a Bloat Busting Breakfast that’s great for breaking through constipation. JJ said you should start your day with fiber and a tablespoon of flax seed. Flax seed is a great way to get more fiber into your diet, because you get two grams of fiber for every tablespoon of flax seed that you eat.
Can You Eat Whole Flax Seeds?
However, you want to be sure to grind your flax seeds before you eat them because if you eat the whole seeds, they will come out “the other end” still looking like seeds because they don’t get digested unless they’re ground. Just sprinkle a tablespoon of ground flax seeds over your breakfast. Wait until you see Dr. Oz’s amazing Bloat-Busting Breakfast recipe on the next page….

Blueberries are great because they are low in sugar but high in antioxidants which slows the aging process. JJ revealed that she’ll be 48 in a couple months, yet she truly looks like she’s in her early 30’s! She attributes drinking water and eating antioxidants to looking so young.
JJ also shared a recipe she called her “back-up plan” but to me it sounds just as tasty and nutritious at the yogurt! For that recipe, continue on to the next page…

So what about lunch? Dr. Oz’s Power Greens Smoothie Recipe is on the next page…
Dr Oz: Power Greens Lunch Smoothie
For lunch, JJ Smith told Dr. Oz that you should eat a cup of power greens to heal inflammation. According to JJ, a lot of inflammatory conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, cause inflammation. It’s actually linked to inflammation in your body and in your digestive tract. Adding greens into your diet can heal inflammation. JJ likes the idea of drinking green smoothies, because it’s a great way to get a lot of greens into your diet. Some of her favorite greens include spinach, green beans, asparagus, and cucumbers.
Do Green Beans Make You Bloated?
Green beans do not make you gassy or bloated. They are different than the other kinds of beans that cause gas. In fact, just one cup of green beans has four grams of fiber, making them great for your digestion. Asparagus also has prebiotics, which promotes a healthy gut and improves digestion. Fiber is the key though, because the more fiber you have in your diet, the less likely you are to experience constipation.
Dr Oz recruited a woman to try the Tummy Tox and she revealed that she could zip her jeans right up. She also said she hasn’t felt that thin since her fifth baby.
Dr Oz: Fennel Tea Improves Digestion
Lastly, for dinner, you want a Double-Duty Digestion Dinner! Dr. Oz said to focus on lean protein like chicken, eggs, tofu, or salmon. Lean protein and plant-based protein are easiest to digest. And finally, you want to end your days with fennel tea. JJ Smith calls fennel tea a digestive system savior because it has a compound that relieves gas and moves things along in the body. If you enjoy it at the end of the meal, it can prevent gas and bloating after.
