    You should know that while natural fruits and veggies are healthy for you, there are some that you shouldn’t combine! Consider the pairing of tomatoes and cucumbers.
    Tomatoes and cucumbers are fantastic for our health. Both of them are abundant in water, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. But you shouldn’t combine them at the same time! Ayurveda says that we should be aware of each ingredient’s precise digestion time while selecting ingredients for a salad. It is not a good idea to combine veggies that break down quickly with others that take longer since the lighter element will pass through the intestines before the more difficult-to-digest vegetable has finished. Food will ferment in the stomach as a result, potentially poisoning the body as a whole. Additionally, it will hinder the entire digestion and fermentation process of carbohydrates and sugars, making it impossible for you to fully enjoy your meal. The fermentation process may result in gas, bloating, and stomach pain, which would exacerbate the situation. Beyond just tomatoes and cucumbers, there are other dietary combos that you should stay away from. Let’s examine this: Fruits after a meal: Fruits should never be kept in the stomach for an extended amount of time because they take a long time to digest. You run the risk of developing acid reflux and other digestive problems if you eat them right after eating. Meat and cheese: Limit the amount of protein you eat during a meal to one type of protein only. Despite its widespread appeal, macaroni and cheese (and macaroni and meat) should be avoided since the starch in the macaroni has a different digestion time than protein, which can lead to fermentation and other digestive issues. Cheese with vegetables: Combining cheese and vegetables will only make you more likely to experience bloating. Bread or noodles with orange juice: the enzyme responsible for breaking down carbohydrates may be destroyed by the acidity required to digest the juice. Watermelon and melon should only be eaten by themselves; they should not be combined with other fruits. It is well known that the combination of milk and bananas slows down digestion. Yogurt and fruits together are a popular breakfast combination, but they damage the intestinal flora and slow down digestion.
