I am participating in a sponsored campaign for Beano. I received Beano products and compensation in exchange for my participation. The opinions stated here are my own.
We talked a few weeks ago about what was off the menu for me. Namely, dairy, raw veggies and spicy foods. Now, while probiotics have helped immensely, and I’ve actually been able to enjoy salad for lunch lately sometimes like a normal desk warrior, dairy AND raw veggies remains hit or miss.
Beano challenged me to try their Beano+ Dairy Defense product, to see if it’d help me feel better. Game on.
We get catered lunch several days a week from Dig Inn, and their delicious, healthy fibrous food can sometimes just be a little much for my delicate flower stomach. I decided to try it on this day when we had meatballs (YUM), bulgur and kale. The natural enzymes in the tablets target both complex carbohydrates (the ones that are good for you, but whose fiber content can sometimes be too much) and dairy.
Although we don’t talk about it (uh, unless we’re runners, and all bets are off), a recent survey by Beano found that more than 70 million Americans suffer from some kind of digestive issue and 75 percent of female respondents in this same survey said they’d had problems with vegetables, beans, whole grains and dairy from time to time.
WELL, GUYS, THE BEANO WORKED.
So I decided to challenge it further with some dairy.
RED MANGO IT IS!
Though fro-yo is lower in lactose, it still gives me trouble sometimes, and I prefer for it to be a private treat rather than a treat with friends in case it upsets my stomach, unfortunately.
BUT IT WORKED! I felt a-okay afterwards. Is this for the best? That I can eat all the fro-yo I want with a side of Beano? Unclear, but it’s nice to know that it’s an option available to me. In all seriousness, I typically try to avoid the foods that don’t make me feel my best, but it’s nice to have the possibility of having some of these foods when I really want them.
IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!
I know I’m not the only one with digestive issues, so I gots some Beano for ya!
