It is not what we eat but what we digest and assimilate that adds to our health, strength and usefulness. Food combining is a health-conscious approach to eating, where foods that require different digestive environments are eaten separately. Here in this post list “7 Most Dangerous Food Combination” you should avoid to consuming.
1] Food And Water/Juice
Drinking water or juice with your meal is one of the most toxic food combinations. Drinking water during meals hampers your stomach’s digestive powers. The reason – water or juice dilutes your stomach acids and reduces their effectiveness in breaking down proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Research shows that sipping a little water during meals isn’t a cause for concern but drinking a glass or two may interfere with digestion. It is best to drink 30 minutes before or after the meal.
2] Dangerous Food Combination : Banana and Milk
Most of the people on earth who like banana milkshake. But Ayurveda lists this combination as one of the heaviest and a dangerous toxin-forming food combination. This dangerous combination create heaviness in the body and slow down the mind. Try to avoid this combination. If you cannot resist a banana milkshake, then make sure that banana is very ripe and add a pinch of cardamom or cinnamon dust to stimulate your digestive system.
3] Tomatoes And Cheese Pasta sauce
No pasta is complete without tomatoes, cheese sauce or meat. It’s another dangerous food combination. As per Food combining theory recommends to avoid mixing carbohydrates with acids. Tomatoes are considered acidic and are not advised to be mixed with starchy carbs such as pasta and all of these wreak havoc on your digestive system. So, try to stick to pesto sauce to avoid after and grilled veggies instead!
4] Burger and Fries
Burger and French fries may seem the least of all evils when perusing a bar food menu. A convenient meal is usually an unhealthy. 8/10 experts say big “NO” on this food combination. French fries are often the super-fatty side dish to a burger. Over cooked food with high levels of fat, preservatives and other chemicals can form a charcoal-type substance. This then combines with the sugar in potato fries, creating cytokines which can cause inflammation and speed up the aging process. The calorie count of any burger would range from 400 Kcal to 1350 Kcal. So, try to avoid this dangerous food combination.
5] Cheese And Meat
Cheesy meatballs, pizza, cheese and meat omelet- these all are very high in protein content. Eating red meat and processed meat increases your risk of heart disease, diabetes and colon cancer, according to the Harvard School of Public Health. Naturally, it is very difficult to digest. So instead, stick to chopped vegetables in fondue, avoid cheese in meatballs and cut down the meat in omelet.
6] Starchy Carbs and Tomatoes
Tomatoes are an acidic fruit and can cause problems when eaten at the same time as starch carbohydrates. The word carb is short for carbohydrate. Tomatoes should never be combined with any starch food. They may be eaten with leafy vegetables and fat foods. Starchy carbs include rice or sweet potatoes. One runs the risk of causing indigestion, GERD and other digestion problems by doing this.
7] Wine and Pudding
I’m not sure who first had the idea of pairing this, but it’s gotten out of hand. Unfortunately for those with a sweet tooth, this delectable combo can wreak havoc on your insides. Alcohol messes up blood sugar levels and increases insulin production, so then the high amount of sugar in your dessert will be stored as fat and lead to unhealthy weight gain. So, try to avoid this dangerous food combination. For a better alternative try consuming wine with low-glycaemic index rated foods such as fibrous vegetables.
