A Breakfast to Help Your Bloat

If you struggle with bloating or pain in your pelvis, something that can help is bananas. The potassium within the banana helps your body get rid of sodium and any excess water you’re holding on to. Bloating happens when you eat rich foods or too much sodium, so use bananas to rescue you!

In this season of holiday parties and tasty foods, it’s more important than ever to have a solid breakfast to get a good start to your day. And why not make it full of some fruit and deliciousness!

Strawberry and Banana Stuffed French Toast Recipe


  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons icing sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 slices white or whole wheat bread
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • ¼ cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons butter



Mix together cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons of the icing sugar and cinnamon, and spread evenly on two slices of bread. Next, top the bread with banana and strawberries, and add another slice of bread. 

Whisk together your egg, milk, and vanilla in a bowl. On the stove, melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Dip your sandwiches into the egg mixture and cook for a minute or two. When the cooked side is golden, flip. To finish, dust with the last bit of icing sugar. 

On a weekend morning when you’ve got a bit of time, grab some thick bread and fresh fruit, and enjoy your breakfast like it was meant to be enjoyed!
