Ok…let me be the one to say that this food combining chart that has been going around the world for years is one big fat bowl of junkfood. There is nothing substantial about it and folks need to stop posting it as if it really saying anything prolific. Im kinda over the health garbage that comes out every year. What we gotta say to ourselves is where is the proof and does this make sense? NO IT DOESNT!
First of all, one of the biggest issues that this food combining chart mentions is that you cant mix protein with starch. UH! Well, just about everything has a lil bit of both: Beans, protein and starch; Rice, protein and starch; Many veggies contains protein and starch; This chart is wack and has NO scientific backing whatsoever.
It doesnt even go along with the process by which we digest food at all. This chart is basically saying that the stomach requires items to be digested one at a time, no mixing of foods, due to the release of digestive enzymes. How many people have over the years stopped mixing Melons with anything else? ME!! I admit to being a fool with the food combining for years…can you find any real information as to why you can eat melons with anything else but other melons? NOPE! Me neither! And guess what Watermelons and Cucumbers are related…but you cant mix them in the same eating? Sounds pretty darn silly to me!
Let’s be SMART folks! Im going to admit that this chart has puzzled me for years….because I could never follow it..and always felt guilty of not following it. Let’s face it! If this chart were really true, all people everywhere in the entire world would be sick every time they ate because all we do is mix our foods when we eat. The basis of all cuisines in the world is mixed macronutrients…and here is the good news…YOUR DIGESTIVE TRACT CAN HANDLE IT! YAY!
