From the way Devran described her lunch, it sounds like she ate the orange last. Fruit digests very quickly in the stomach (in around 25 minutes), and if we eat it for dessert after heavier foods which take a few hours to digest, it gets backed up in our system like a traffic jam and can ferment, leading to bloating and other issues, so it essentially rots before we can assimilate all of its nutrients. I'd like her to switch to eating it first, or a few hours later as a snack."
