Some food combinations usually go wrong. But most of the people ignore the fact of food partners. In other words, they ignore that fact that why one food product should not be eaten with the another. In most of the cases, people are still unaware of the food combinations that do not match at all. According to Ayurveda, the basic rule of living healthy is eating healthy. In order to ensure healthily, we must consider what we eat and how do we eat. Food combinations that do not match often lead to indigestion and do more harm to the body than any good. However, eating right choice of food makes the body healthy and well-nourished. Over the period of time, we have set some eating goals as per our taste buds. We have almost become ignorant of the side effects that the unhealthy food combinations do to our body. (Also read: What are the harmful effects of eating junk food)
Before the situation becomes too grave, let’s discuss the various food combinations that we should avoid.
Banana and milk:
This must be really shocking for all! But it is a bitter truth. Eating a banana with milk is a big ‘No’. Most of us go gaga over banana milk shakes, as we consider it as a healthy food combination. Banana and milk are very heavy to eat together. They are difficult to digest and even slows down the process of brain functioning. Banana and milk both belong to opposite food quality. One has heating quality and other has cooling quality. Besides this bananas turn sour while they break down and eventually become toxic when sour gets mixed with milk. This eventually leads to problems like cold, cough, rashes on the body, allergy etc.
Burger and fries:
We often have fries along with our favourite burger. However, this is a complete disaster. Trans fat is prime in both these food choices. It makes you lazy and tired which eventually makes you a couch potato. Both these food products are fried in nature, they cause a rapid rise in the level of cholesterol and sugar. It leads to more weight gain and increased appetite. (Also read: What are the healthy fruits that one should eat everyday)
Yogurt and fruits:
According to Ayurveda, mixing sour and dairy product often causes blunder. It leads to the production of toxins in the body and makes digestion difficult. Mixing these food products lead to the disappearance of digestive fire. Thus, it ultimately causes cold, cough, skin allergies etc.
Beans and cheese:
Cheese is a common protein rich dairy product. It leads to stomach bloating and the problem of gas. It weakens the process of digestion as both of the food products are heavy to digest. Now considering their food quality, cheese is heating in nature whereas, beans can be either heating or cooling. Thus, they cause confusion in the digestive system. If by mistake these food products reach the colon then the process of urination, sweating and faecal movement slows down and get infected.
Pizza and soda:
This combination is everyone’s favourite. Our taste buds are addicted to this combination. However, pizza and soda drinks are both acidic in nature. Pizza contains carbohydrates and proteins in high proportion. However, it takes up most of the body energy during the process of digestion. Along with that, drinking soda also leads to slow down the process of digestion. It eventually causes gastric and stomach related problems.
