Fruits you should not have together

Staff Reporter :

New Delhi, May 10, 2017 : We all think that a bowl of fruits and vegetables  is the best meal one can have. We chop all the fruits  and salad vegetables, we add salt  and lemon and  believe it to be the healthiest ever. But is this the right way to go about it?

Acidic, sweet or neutral – This is  how you should categorize your fruits when combining them.  First of all, you shouldn’t mix fruits and vegetables with each other. Second of all, you shouldn’t even combine certain fruits with each other. This basically depends on the speed of digestion of different fruits and vegetables.

Have melons with melons
Melons are celibates. They never pair up with anyone else. Have them by themselves as they may not digest well with any other fruit. This is because they digest faster than most other fruits owing to their high water content. Avoid mixing your watermelons, muskmelons, etc with other fruits.

Never have acidic/sub acidic with sweet fruits
Try not to mix acidic fruits, such as grapefruits and strawberries, or sub-acidic foods such as apples, pomegranates and peaches, with sweet fruits, such as bananas and raisins for a better digestion. However, you can mix acidic with sub-acidic fruits.
For a similar reason, you should not mix guavas and bananas. Some studies claim that the duo can even increase your chances of nausea, acidosis and headaches.

Never have fruits with vegetables
Fruits and vegetables digest differently. Fruits have a quicker pace of digestion and in fact, many nutritionists say that they are partially digested by the time they reach the stomach. Also, fruits have more sugar content, something that can hinder the digestive process of vegetables.
For the same reason, one shouldn’t mix orange with carrot as when taken together, they may cause heartburn and excess bile reflux.

Never mix starchy with high protein
Only a few fruits are starchy in nature. These include green bananas and plantains. But there are many vegetables that are starchy in nature, such as corns, potatoes, cowpeas, black-eyed peas .They should never be mixed  with high protein fruits and vegetables such as raisins, guava, spinach and broccoli. This is because your body needs an acidic base to digest proteins and an alkaline base to digest starches.
