Never Mix Cucumbers With Certain Fruits, It Can be Poisonous!

This concept didn’t make sense to me at first because I’ve eaten anything and everything however as I get older I’m realizing that I can’t do that anymore.

Certain foods are now affecting me differently. And, apparently different combinations of food can have an effect as well.

We all think that a bowl of fruits and vegetables is the best kind of meal one can have. We chop all the fruits and salad vegetables that our refrigerator has, squeeze a lime, add a dash of salt and we believe it to be the healthiest ever. But is this the right way to go about it?

Can we just mix any kind of food together?

One other thing to think about, what medications are you on?

Turns out, what you take with your medications can be just as important as taking them in the first place. Here’s why: Research shows that some foods and drinks can rob your medications of some of their powers. Or they can cause serious, even life-threatening, reactions.

Kale is great for you—usually. If you’re taking some drugs, it might cause some bad side effects.  Same with grapefruit juice and other healthy foods and drinks, and some other common treats.

All natural fruits and vegetables are good for you, but you might not be aware that you’re not supposed to mix certain ones! Take cucumbers and tomatoes for example.

Cucumbers and tomatoes are awesome for our body. They are both packed full of water, antioxidants, nutrients, and vitamins. However, you’re not supposed to mix them at the same time! This is because one of them has a fast digestion rate, and the other one has a slow digestion rate!

When we consume foods with such a difference in digestion rates it causes a lot of side effects. The lighter ingredient will end up passing in the intestine as the first one is completely digested.

The results in the fermentation of the food in your stomach, making it potentially poisonous to you!

Another combination to look out for…

AVOID FRUIT AFTER A MEAL?

Fruit contains simple sugars that require no digestion. Thus, they will not stay for a long time in the stomach. Other foods, such as foods rich in fat, protein, and starch, will stay in the stomach for a longer period of time because they require more digestion.

So if you eat fruit after a meal, the fruit sugar will stay for too long in the stomach and ferment.

BELOW WE HAVE LISTED 7 MORE COMBINATIONS OF FOOD TO AVOID:
  • Mac and Cheese

I know I know…besides the fact that mac and cheese is a popular meal, it shouldn’t be consumed. This is because macaroni are rich in starch, which has a different digestion time than protein. Hence, this combo will result in fermentation and digestive problems.

  • Meat and Cheese

This is another combination which should be avoided because it is never a good idea to put too much protein in the

  • Vegetables and Cheese

Consuming this duo together will only result in bloating.

  • Bread/Noodles and Orange Juice

Never mix noodles and bread with orange juice, because the acid needed to digest the juice might diminish the enzyme whose role is starch digestion.

  • Melon and Watermelon

Never eat watermelon and melon together because they are meant to be consumed alone.

  • Bananas and Milk

This combination should be also avoided because, besides the good taste, it slows down the digestion.

  • Fruit and Yogurt

This WAS my favorite breakfast of all time (with some raw granola and honey). Unfortunately, it slows down your digestion and harms your intestinal flora. Truth is, I still eat this, can’t be perfect all the time.
