Weddings are a big deal and one important thing both the bride and groom should pay attention to is the food they eat on that day.
Contrary to the popular statement, 'If you look good, you feel good', feeling good has more to do with your body than your looks. If you eat something that upsets your stomach, you will definitely not feel good and will end up having a bad day.
NAIJ.com has a list of four meals you should avoid to prevent an upset stomach:
As delicious as porridge beans and moin-moin are, you should avoid both of them like it's witchcraft on your big day.
It will be delicious going down but soon enough, you will find yourself desperately looking for a toilet to get it out.
2. Vegetable soup
Vegetable soup is normally used to cleanse the stomach and encourages bowel movements so it's definitely something to worry about.
If you eat it in the morning and it doesn't get you during the ceremony, it will get you during your wedding night and that will surely ruin the mood.
3. Extremely spicy food e.g. pepper soup
Even if you love peppery food and have developed an iron stomach, avoid it on that day on the off chance that you react negatively to it. Pepper usually upsets the stomach in one way or the other and that's the last thing you need on your day.
4. Fura da nunu.
This is local yogurt which is very delicious. Most people are lactose intolerant and if you are one of them, avoid it on your big day. If you are not sure if you are intolerant, don't take a chance on that day, ignore it.
