10 ways to avoid feeling bloated after eating

foods

I don't know anyone that likes to look of feel bloated, do you? It's rather uncomfortable and not particularly attractive. Even if no one can tell you are bloated you end up feeling like you are three sizes larger than usual. The funny thing is that although of course there is a ton of junk food that can make you bloated and you already know you should stay away from junk food anyway, one of the consequences of eating healthy foods is that they can cause bloating. By no means should you stop eating healthy, but it's good to know which healthy foods cause bloating and what foods you can add to your diet to help keep the bloating in check.

The perfect way to peel garlic

how

As far as I'm concerned a kitchen without garlic is no kitchen that I want to cook in. Just about every savory dish that I make requires fresh garlic and as much as I love garlic, I do not like to peel it. Peeling garlic is a tedious, time-consuming task. Usually what I do is take the a garlic clove with the skin still on it, put it on a cutting board, then turn a chef's knife sideways and place it right on top of a clove and smack the heck out of it. This makes the skin come right off, but leaves me with a smashed garlic clove. I'm fine with that most of the time, but if I want to keep the pretty clove intact that method does not work and carefully peeling the skin off with my fingers blows, especially if I'm doing a bunch of garlic.

Well, now I know a clever trick for peeling a whole head of garlic, with the help of a microwave. It's BRILLIANT!

how

Do you know how to chop an onion the right way? I do because my beloved tía, may she rest in peace, taught me how in the kitchen of her home in León, Guanjuato many, many years ago. I was 10 years old at the time and had flown to visit my tía all by myself from California. My tía loved me something powerful. I couldn't be in the same room with her without feeling the force of her love. She made everything that we did together feel special and blessed even teaching me how to chop onions the right way was a beautiful experience that I will never forget.

Sadly, my tía is no longer here to teach you how to cut onions, but I found a great video tutorial that shows you how to cut onions just the way my tía taught me.
