All natural fruits and vegetables are good for you, but you might not be aware that you’re not supposed to mix certain ones! Take cucumbers and tomatoes for example.
- Cucumbers and tomatoes are awesome for our body. They are both packed full of water, antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamins. However, you’re not supposed to mix them at the same time! This is because one of them has a fast digestion rate, and the other one has a slow digestion rate! When we consume foods with such a difference in digestion rates it causes a lot of side effects. The lighter ingredient will end up passing in the intestine as the first one is completely digested. The results in the fermentation of the food in your stomach, making it potentially poisonous to you!

Mac and Cheese
Besides the fact that mac and cheese is a popular meal, it shouldn’t be consumed. This is because macaroni are rich in starch, which has a different digestion time than protein. Hence, this combo will result in fermentation and digestive problems.
Meat and Cheese

Bread/Noodles and Orange Juice
Never mix noodles and bread with orange juice, because the acid needed to digest the juice might diminish the enzyme whose role is starch digestion.
Melon and Watermelon

Bananas and Milk
This combination should be also avoided because, besides the good taste, it slows down the digestion.
Fruit and Yogurt
This is a typical breakfast combination. However, it slows down your digestion and harms your intestinal flora.
