So, Ayurveda has various guidelines regarding food-combining. It takes some time to get used to but when you get the hang of it the benefits are bountiful. Helping digestive processes along with matching enzymes to according foods helps nutrient absorption and can help you avoid heartburn, reflux, indigestion etc.
Today, we are starting with the art of eating fruit just because fruit hold key nutrients and fibre and the quicker the nutritional content of fruits are maximized, the better!
The best time to eat fruit is in the morning, on an empty stomach or spaced a couple hours after breakfast and before lunch. Then wait half an hour to an hour before you eat your next food.
Again, correct food combining is integral to good digestive health. It can seem quite overwhelming so for now, let’s just start with eating the first step of eating fruit correctly.
By the way, dates and milk are perfectly fine to combine.
Oh and keep the mornings for bananas, apples, pears, apricots, peaches, kiwi, and mango all fruits except citrus. Citrus works about an hour before lunch.
And keep berries (except for strawberries) for the morning. Strawberries are great as an afternoon snack.
And then you’re probably wondering about dried fruits. Dried fruits are suitable at any time and luckily can be eaten with other foods but rather avoid mixing fresh and dried fruit together.
Okay before you probably either toss the blog or just eat any fruit whenever possible, I’ll stop!
