Food Combining

Rules for a better digestion

Conservation of energy in the digestive process is the key to all healing. Energy is the most important factor needed for recovery of health and it must be conserved at all costs and not wasted in unnecessary digestion. Sequential eating will maximize the conservation of energy without fail.

Eat the most watery food first.

Chew all food close to a liquid before swallowing. Absorption and assimilation of its vitamins, minerals proteins etc. is increased. Smoothies and juices are an excellent way to liquify the food. My blender is the no. 1 utensil in my kitchen. A liquid salad digests in about 15-20 minutes, compared to a tossed salad which takes 30-60 minutes to digest.

An excellent practice is to eat with 100% attention on the taste of the food.

Remember the less you mix and the fewer the varieties you use, the easier it is to digest and the less you will be tempted to overeat. The greater the variety, the greater the tendency to overeat.

Avoid drinking beverages or even water during or after meals.

Never eat fresh/dried  sweet fruits with or after concentrated proteins/cooked food. Wait at least 30 minutes.
