For our progress and happiness, I believe that we should also be concerned with healthy eating. We do in vain the movement, fitness, meditation etc. unless we pay little attention to what and how we eat.
Combining proper food was actually my main focus on healthy eating part: learn to properly combine foods to help my body to digest them easier to maintain a good energy.
It is important to know that even if we eat best BIO and natural foods but combine them wrong by eating together two foods that require different gastric adjustments resulting in the gastric juice which NOT fully digesting NONE of the food, and as a result food gets in the intestines incomplete digested and becomes putrefied.
There are some fairly simple rules regarding this:
- Our stomach cannot digest 2 concentrated foods (concentrated food means any food that is not a raw vegetable or fruit). Especially those rich in proteins containing two different protein sources. More simply, NEVER combine meat with eggs, cheese and vegetables (beans, peas, lentils) in same meal.
- Never mix ANIMAL PROTEIN (meat, cheese, eggs) with the ones rich in starch (pasta, bread, potatoes, rice, pastries, bean)! It’s a contradiction at the enzymes level that make none of the foods to digest completely.
- Never combine fruits and sweets (sugar) with the rest of the food.
* Fruit should be eaten only on an empty stomach. We eat the fruits at least 30 minutes before or 2 hours later you had your meal. Sugar, honey, dextrose, fructose will inhibit the secretion of gastric juice by mixing it with the rest of the food, you’ll feel bloated and uncomfortable after eating! So NOT DESERT immediately after you had your meal.
- Don’t mix fatty foods (butter, lard, cream, lard and oils) with the ones rich in protein neither the ones rich in starch because:
– Fats mixed with protein greatly hinder passage of the food from the stomach into the intestine.
– Fats mixed with starch forms an indigestible food bowl but extremely rich in empty calories, leading to weight gain.
- Combine animal proteins and fats with vegetables low in starch:
(Particularly the green and the water-rich ones: parsley, spinach, tomato, cucumber, peppers, broccoli, cabbage, etc.)
- The rich in starch foods (pasta, potatoes, bread, corn, rice etc.) are an excellent complement to Vegetables (beans, peas, lentils, beans, chickpeas).
