Do you follow the proper food combinations?
For instance, how many of us are aware that we should not take
fruits and milk or curd together? Ayurveda speaks of incompatible
diet combinations which may contribute to toxins and ill health. It
is my attempt to list a few food combinations you should try to
1. Avoid eating fruits along with starchy foods. Bread, rice or
potatoes should not be savoured along with lemons, oranges,
grapefruits, pineapples, tomatoes or other sour fruits.
Fructose(fruit sugar) is digested quickly, whereas starch takes
more time resulting in indigestion and related ailments. Instead,
foods like tomatoes can be enjoyed with with protein/fat foods like
nuts, cheese and avocados.
2. Do not take cold beverages along with a meal. Always "sip" luke
warm water instead.
3. Never take milk with citrus fruits, cheese or fish. Always take
milk and melon varieties alone. Warm milk is healthier than cold
4. Avoid eating two concentrated proteins together! Theory says
that each proteins has different "style" of digestion. So, don't
eat meat protein and milk protein together.
5. Curd should never accompany egg, fish, meat etc. So forget
marinating non vegetarian items in curd from now on. Neither should
curd be cooked or taken at night.
6. Do not eat a salad with tomato and cucumber together! The
Vitamin C in the tomato gets destroyed by the cucumber. In the same
way, avoid squeezing lemon on cucumber salad.
7. If you are eating mangoes, cheese, curd, fish or starchy foods
avoid drinking hot beverages.
8. Additionally, it is recommendable to begin a starchy or cooked
meal with a green salad.
9. Fruits are always good to be taken alone.
10. Instead of curd, Ayurveda speaks about buttermilk with a pinch
of salt, pepper, curry leaves and ginger. There is no concept of
"dessert" in Ayurvedic diet.
But experts also believe that sometimes human body can get used to
such incompatible food combinations if continued for a long time.
Wishing you good health,
