I’m about to pop some corn. My business partner and I share a passion and love for popcorn. We often spend hours talking about this oddly shaped snack.
Did you know that popcorn is really great food to eat when you’re recovering from a stomach bug and you cannot stomach any food due to vomiting or a runny stomach? When you experience stomach flu doctors recommend the BRAT diet of Bananas, Rice, Apple sauce and toast to help ease the symptoms as these foods are easy to digest.
Try some popcorn, use coconut oil to pop the kernels. Popcorn is a whole food Air-popped popcorn is naturally high in dietary fiber, low in calories and fat, and free of sugar and sodium.It’s an ideal snack for people with dietary restrictions like diabetes, high blood pressure etc. Use herbs like basil, thyme and cumin to add flavour to your kernels instead of the conventional salt or sugar. It ready does ease the pain and cramping when you’re recovering from an upset stomach. Don’t forget to drink lots of water to help cleanse your system too.
Coconut water is the a miracle drink. It has ions which help to replenish lost fluid during stomach flu. Coconut water also has antibacterial properties making it ideal to cure stomach problems. Drink lots of it too when you have an upset stomach.
In Ghana popcorn kernels are available at the foreign supermarkets. Prices range from 3 cedis to 5 cedis for a 500 gram packet. Natural coconut water is available all year round. One coconut costs 1 cedi in Accra but it’s a lot cheaper in the villages and other regions.
