One of the best things to eat to maintain good digestion is fiber. In fact, doctors say those who face digestive issues often have improved results by eating a diet high in fiber and low in fat. Combined with drinking lots of water and limiting alcohol intake, many people experience much improved symptoms. Since it’s nearly time for some in-season fresh fruit, this salad will give you a nice light meal while providing enough substance to satisfy. The mango and avocado add enough fiber to help smooth digestion as well.
