Mixing Foods & Digestion

 

Recently I’ve been experiencing those reoccurring stomach issues that I thought going Vegan had FINALLY solved (not the only reason I went vegan) but of course the stomach issues are back for vengeance.

My mom (don’t know why she decided to wait 26 years to tell me) had told me the other week that ever since I was little’ I’ve always had stomach issues’…thanks mom. So something that I thought had started in my teens was actually an issue since birth.

Luckily, the other day someone had mentioned to me about mixing foods and how that affects our digestion… I actually felt kind of stupid because, what the heck why didn’t I think of this before. SOOOO instead of going to the Dr…..again x50 I went straight to the one thing I can rely on in life… the one thing that knows everything about anything…Google hehe.

So here it is. How I’m figuring this whole digestions thing out and I hope that I can maybe help someone whose having the same super annoying issues I’m having. Enjoy!

My first tid bit of info comes from ‘BodyEcology’ and an article titled,

‘Food Combining: The Little-Understood Secret to Optimal Health & Weight Revealed’ 

” What happens in your stomach and digestive tract is important AND can be the key to long-term health and weight loss!”

 Eat Fruits Alone on an Empty Stomach

 Eat Proteins with Non-Starchy Vegetables and/or Ocean Vegetables

 Eat Grains and Starchy Vegetables with Non-Starchy and/or Ocean Vegetables

They also touch on the details of food combining and what you should and shouldn’t eat together.
