Many people think that mixing any fruit with any vegetable is completely OK, but according to experts, some combinations can be extremely dangerous for our health. Just like we all know that there are many medications which shouldn’t be mixed, the same goes for fruits and vegetables. Fruits and veggies are definitely healthy, but some of them should never be mixed or you’ll definitely suffer the consequences.
Take tomatoes and cucumbers for example – we often prepare a salad from them and not think much of it, but actually, we’re making a big mistake. Both ingredients have different digestion times in our body – while one is digested fast, the other digests pretty slowly, which can have detrimental effects on our digestive health. The slowly digested ingredient ends up rotting in your stomach, increasing the risk of numerous health problems.
Avoid eating fruit after a meal!
Another mistake we all make is eating fruit after a meal. Sure, fruits contain an abundance of important nutrients, but eating them after meals will leave their sugar, starches and protein in our stomach for too long, resulting in longer digestion and starting a fermentation process that is likely to harm your health.
Here are 7 common food combinations you should never try:
- Mac and Cheese
This meal is very popular, but consuming it is very wrong. Macaroni contain starch. Its time of digestion is much more different than the one of protein. This combination will only cause digestive problems and fermentation.
- Cheese and Meat
Another combination you need to avoid because of the greater amount of protein.
- Cheese and Vegetables
If you mix veggies with cheese they will most certainly cause bloating.
- Orange Juice and Noodles/Bread
These should never be mixed! He acid you need to digest the juice may destroy the enzyme that has a role to digest starch.
- Watermelon and Melon
Melons and watermelons should always be consumed separately.
- Milk and Bananas
This combination slows your digestive system like nothing else, avoid it as much as possible.
- Yogurt and Fruit
Also this combination is slowing down your digestive system, and causes a lot of issues for the intestinal flora, besides that it is most people’s favorite breakfast.
