In the same way that some foods upset your stomach, others can be soothing, and even leave your digestive system better than they found it.
This holiday season, mix up your decadent foods with some of these gut-settling recipes to calm down the tummy, courtesy of the Food Monster App.

7. Warm Potato Salad With Spinach and Chickpeas
One Green Planet‘s Warm Potato Salad With Spinach and Chickpeas is the classic potato salad – mix up some boiled potatoes with mayonnaise and mustard, and voilà! But, what’s a person to do if she wants to add more veggies and cut out the fattening mayo? Enter this warm potato salad: it’s cooked in a skillet with the addition of onions, peppers, mushrooms, and chickpeas. Adding fresh rosemary along with a few other spices brings out the flavors very nicely. Chickpeas make this salad more filling, so you can serve it as a meal, not just a side. Feeling adventurous? Throw this salad on a bed of greens, or wrap it in a whole-grain tortilla with some salsa for a tasty and compact lunch!
8. Spring Kale and Dill Soup With Rice
Dill has a delightfully fresh and citrus-like flavor which, in Zsu Dever‘s very quick and easy Spring Kale and Dill Soup With Rice , is accentuated with a squeeze of lemon juice added at the end. The beans bring a layer of creaminess as well as a boost of protein. The rice thickens the soup and adds more texture. As for kale, it is always a welcome addition not only because it boosts nutrition, but also because the hint of its bitterness complements the dill. A full circle of flavors.
