5 Food Combinations You Should Avoid!
There are many food combinations that are perfectly healthy for us, and even enhance the natural qualities of each other. On the other hand, it’s no less important what foods are not advised to mix, as they cancel each other’s health benefits’s, and at times cause digestion and other problems.
1. Coffee and Eggs
This lethal combination is part of many restaurants and families breakfast, and yet the polyphoneles in the coffee actually reduce the absorption of iron from the eggs and decreases the amount of calcium in our bones.
Tip: If you can’t get through the day without caffeine, try to switch from coffee to chai tea, which supplies caffeine but also contains spices that improve the flow of blood and mental
Tip: If you’ve got a hankering for a glass of milk, drink it with a spoon of honey, since taking them together creates antibacterial qualities that are very healthy for the body.
3. Meat and potato’s
This one may surprise you. It sure as heck surprised us. However, although they make for a full and satisfying meal, the starch from the potato’s is digested in the smaller intestine while the protein from the meat is digested in the stomach, so when we eat them together we may suffer from digestive problems and lower metabolism.
4. Fruits and any other food
Fruits are an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants, but they also contain large amounts of acids that make them to ferment in the stomach and slow the digestion of other foods.
Tip: Only beans don’t ferment in the stomach. Eat other fruit on an empty stomach to avoid digestive problems and gas eruptions.
5. Greens and Dairy Products
Is this true? After all, creamed spinach, for example, is an excellent side dish. Unfortunately research shows that the chemicals in green vegetables (without starch, like spinach, broccoli, cabbage etc) may prevent the absorption of calcium from the dairy products. Instead, try to combine them with lean foods rich in protein, such as fish or chicken.
