Consuming fruit and veggies every day is very important if you want to stay healthy.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should mix them together – eating different types of fruits and vegetables together is not only unhealthy, it can have serious consequences on your health!
Here are the foods you must never mix:
Banana and pudding
This combination is difficult to digest and will stimulate toxin production in the body, which can kill infants and will slow the mind of adults.
Carrots and oranges
Although a popular combination in many health stores, mixing carrots and oranges can be very dangerous. This mix has been known to cause acid reflux and heartburn, but some people have also reported kidney damage and other problems.
Milk and pineapple
Pineapple contains bromelain, a compound which can cause severe headaches, stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea and infections if mixed with milk.
Lemon and papaya
Consuming these tropical fruits together can cause anemia and hemoglobin imbalance, and is highly dangerous for children.
Banana and guava
Consuming banana and guava together will cause acidosis and excess gasses, and can make you feel lightheaded as well.
Milk and orange
If you’re adding orange juice in your bowl of breakfast cereal every morning, stop! Consuming a mixture of milk and orange will make your body unable to process the starch from the cereal. Once it gets mixed with the milk, the digestion becomes even more difficult, causing numerous health problems.
Fruits and vegetables
Fruits and veggies should never be mixed together. Fruits contain sugar and are difficult to digest, meaning that they stay in your stomach for a longer period. During that time, they begin to ferment and release toxins which could cause headaches, digestive problems and other serious health issues.
Here’s a list which will show you which groups of fruits can be mixed:
Sweet: you can safely combine and consume bananas, apples, plums, cantaloupe and watermelon.
Acidic: you can mix fruits rich in citric acid such as lemon, blueberries, orange, grapes, kiwi and grapefruit.
Semi-acidic: semi-acidic fruits such as mango, apples, raspberry and strawberry can be mixed and consumed.
Neutral: you can consume a mixture of avocado, peanuts, almonds, walnuts and coconuts.
