Food Combining

By Jean Sumner

Food Combining

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that it is important to eat certain foods together? Well for optimum digestion it is important not to combine foods that digest at a different rate. If you consume foods that digest at a different rate you will experience indigestion, fermentation, bloating, and poor assimilation. These are all things you want to avoid if you want to be vibrantly healthy.

Even if you have the perfect diet the combination of foods eaten at one sitting can either help or hinder your digestive process. The goal is to nourish your body with the most nutrient dense, easily digestible foods which will allow for quick absorption of nutrients and efficient elimination of waste. You can assist this goal by following food combining rules so your digestive system is working optimally.

The Four Rules of Food Combining

1. Never eat protein-dominant foods and starchy carbohydrate-dominant foods in the same meal. Remember the meals most of us grew up on? Meat and Potatoes. Well no more! Each of these groups goes well with vegetables. Now we need to change to meat and vegetables or potatoes and vegetables.

2. Never eat fruits and vegetables in the same meal. Fruits and vegetables digest at different rates so if you consume them together they may cause a backup in the digestive system and produce gas and bloating.

3. Consume only truly ripe fruit. Fruit is often picked unripe to extend its shelf life. If you eat fruit that isn’t ripe it will take what it needs to ripen from your body.

4. Eat melons alone or only with other melons. Melons digest rapidly and can ferment quickly. If melons are eaten with other foods that require longer digestion they will get held up in the digestive process. This may cause fermentation and cause uncomfortable gas.

Examples of well combined meals would be a salad containing only vegetables, or a baked sweet potato with sautéed vegetables or a steak, salad and broccoli. You will be amazed at how your tummy feels if you follow the food combining rules.
