India and food;
Since arriving in India nearly a week ago we have experienced many different foods and smells. The colours of the spices are exquisite here, everywhere that you walk there is a different stall selling spices. When we first arrived in Mumbai I was so excited by the different tastes. Every dish was filled to the brim with spices and after every meal you are served seeds to help with the digestion. The main ones are Fennel, Caraway and Fenugreek seeds.
Fennel is an amazing aid to the digestive system. If you chew on the seeds after eating they act to help with bloating and gas, along with stomach cramps and other digestive tract ailments.
