Mixing ingredients that have a fast and slow digestion is not a good idea as the lighter ingredient will end up passing in the intestine just as the first one is completely digested. This will bring fermentation of the food in your stomach that may harm your entire body.
The process of fermentation can also cause gasses, swelling and pain in the stomach as well as intestinal issues.
Cucumber and tomatoes are not compatible with each other, so they should never be consumed together. When they reach the stomach and the process of fermentation starts, the acid released in the abdominal cavity for digestion can cause numerous digestive problems.
Here are some other food combinations you should never try:
- Eating fruit after meal is not a good idea – fruits need a lot of time to be digested and should never stay long in the stomach. Eating them after a meal will result in “wine” in your stomach that can lead to acid reflux and other digestive problems.
- Mac and cheese is a popular meal in the USA, but one that should be avoided. Macaroni are rich in starch, which has a different digestion time than protein, so the delay will lead to inevitable fermentation and further digestive problems.
- Meat and cheese omelet is a most favorite meal of millions, but you should avoid putting too much protein on the same dish. Choose only one type of protein per meal.
- You should never mix bread or noodles with orange juice as the acid content needed to digest the juice can destroy the enzyme responsible for starch digestion.
- Vegetables and cheese – eating them together will only result in bloating.
- Melon and watermelon – these fruits are meant to be consumed alone, not in combination with any other fruit.
- Bananas and milk – this combination will significantly slow down your digestion.
People usually add fruit to their bowl of yogurt for breakfast, but this combination will slow down your digestion and harm your intestinal flora. This particularly goes for adding pineapple to your yogurt, which boosts the active ingredients that cause food poisoning.
