From childhood we were told: eat soup, otherwise you will earn gastritis. This myth has long been debunked, but now many are concerned about another question: what if there is already a disease? Is it allowed to eat soups during gastritis, will they help to recover faster? And which first dishes are more beneficial for the stomach?
What soups can be eaten during gastritis?
Speaking of soup, they always mean a liquid dish, in which about half of the composition is water, or broth. Previously, this dish was called chowder, yushkoy. It is believed that it fell into our country, thanks to Peter I: he “delivered” him from France, along with other recipes of French cuisine.
The benefits of soups with gastritis has long been known. Even a few centuries ago, our ancestors started cooking broth at the first signs of illness in the family: it helped to recover faster, gave strength and energy to fight the disease.
However, according to the latest data, soups for gastritis are not shown any and not always. For example, at low acidity, the use of first courses prepared on a gentle basis is welcome. But with an excessive production of acid, the soup can cause an increase in acid formation, therefore, they are prepared using a smaller amount of liquid, in water or vegetable broth, leading to a mucous or rubbed consistency.
Light dietary soups during gastritis
Diseases of the digestive system require simplicity and perfect compatibility of products in the diet. A light soup is the best way to satisfy hunger, without loading the stomach and not interfering with its work.
Most housewives cook different first courses almost daily: at the same time, the lightest options - without the “zazharki”, strong rich broths - are offered to the family more often after plentiful feasts, holidays, and also in summertime when you simply do not want to overload the body with food. It is about these soups and is when it comes to gastritis.
What is the ease of the dish? Not only in its preparation, although in this too. The main difference is the use of the most simple and useful ingredients: vegetables, herbs, cereals. You do not need to “weight” the product with a large amount of fat, meat, cream, do not add pepper and other spicy seasonings, etc. For most soups, even broth is not required, as vegetables and cereals will give the dish plenty of taste and aroma. Such food a sick stomach will only be "grateful."
