An apple with a rolled chapatti, Thai curry with a bite of garlic bread and a lot more odd combinations to go! Busy lifestyle never compliments healthy eating. While it’s the time when you eat for your tongue not for stomach, unhealthy eating is obvious.
Having the right combinations of food can improve your digestive system and benefit your overall health.
Here are some harmful food combinations we have in our daily diets :-
1. Fruits after a meal
Fruits are an easy digest, as they contain simple sugar, they need fewer efforts for digestion. Combining fruits with a meal will make the digestion process longer, the fruits will stay longer in the stomach and lead to fermentation. Consume fruits empty stomach and keep an hour difference in your fruits and meal.
2. Beans and cheese
Those cheesy bites with the topping of beans! Dairy protein and beans is a common combo in Mexican cuisine. While it sounds heavenly but, can get your stomach in danger! It leads to gas and bloating. Try skipping tomato with cheese when you are low on digestion.
3. Banana and milk
This seems a shock for the gym hitters! Ayurveda list this combination as one of the heaviest and toxin forming combo. It creates heaviness in the body and slows down the mind’s working ability. If you’re still in love with a banana smoothie, grab a ripe banana with cardamom and nutmeg to help digestion.
4. Yogurt with fruit
Ayurveda says do not mix sour fruits with dairy items as it can diminish digestive fire, change the intestinal flora, produce toxins and cause sinus congestion. Never mix box if you are weak in digesting.
5. Oatmeal & milk with orange juice
Orange juice contains edible acids which can destroy the enzyme that is responsible for digesting starches present in the cereals. Acidic fruits can curdle milk and turn it into a heavy mucus forming substance.
Choose the right food combinations and stay Healthy!
