This webpage is interesting. Read it when you get a chance... Food Combining I personally was fascinated to see that proteins(acid) and carbohydrates(alkaline) should not be eaten together because they digest at different mediums. *Here are the general rules at the bottom of the page... 1. Eat all kinds of meats, fish, eggs, leafy vegetables, citrus fruits (and carbohydrates only if you must) as the safest way to avoid deficiencies. 2. Do not combine pure fats (butter, cream or bacon) with high starches (potatoes, cereals, breads, cakes or sweets) in any one meal. 3. Do not combine acids (citrus juice, vinegar, buttermilk) with high starches at any one meal. 4. Do not combine high proteins (meats, fish eggs, cheese) with high starches at any one meal. 5. Eat fats freely with proteins and acid solutions. 6. Be sure you get enough of each essential nutritional element as follows: a. Meat, fish, fowl and eggs: One serving of each, or two servings of one per day with butter or other fat. b. Milk, buttermilk, or cheese: Two glasses of raw organic milk or buttermilk, or two and one-half ounces of cheese a day (or one glass of milk or buttermilk plus an ounce or more of cheese). c. Raw, low-starch fruits and raw green and yellow vegetables: Two servings a day or one large salad bowl a day. d. 1 or 2 tablespoonfuls of a plain cod liver oil, or its equivalent in other fish liver oils, or their concentrates in capsules. But if you use capsules, then be sure to take plenty butter fats and cream; your liver must have fats, if it is going to make bile for you. e. If you are a carbohydrate eater, supplement with yeast or other equivalent Vitamin B Complex. Other natural fats and oils may also be necessary as the fact remains that natural fats and oils are absolutely necessary in ample quantities for natural, healthy ****bolism.
