How to Relieve Bloating With Food

Try fresh pineapple. Fresh pineapple contains bromelain and this is a digestion-promoting enzyme.
Try fresh papaya. This also contains bromelain and it is great for breaking down food and digesting proteins.
Munch on celery. Celery helps to relieve fluid retention because it is a diuretic. Try a handful each day until your bloating is under better control.
Choose asparagus. Asparagus encourages the growth of friendly gut bacteria. Friendly bacteria work to reduce the build-up of stomach gas.
Add yogurt to your daily diet. Yogurt brings helpful bacteria to your gut.
Season your food with freshly ground black pepper. Black pepper aids digestion and massaging the essential oil of black pepper on your stomach region can also help.
Drink peppermint tea. Peppermint tea aids digesting by helping food pass through the stomach quickly. It also calms flatulence. Either pre-packaged peppermint tea in bags or fresh mint leaves will work.
