Incompatible FOOD Combinations

Incompatible FOOD Combinations

The Ayurveda Experience October 09, 2015

In the western Diet, very often foods are served together with different tastes, energies and post-digestive effects. The problem with this is our agni, the digestive fire, can get overloaded trying to do too many things at the same time. This results in the production of toxins in the body.

So it is important for us to pay attention to the foods that we consume together to make sure that our digestion stays strong.

There are many foods that, when eaten separately, stimulate agni and are digested easily. But some of those same foods, when eaten together, slow down agni and cause digestive distress.

Here’s a list of some of the more common Incompatible Food Combinations:

Avoid DAIRY products combined with:  

– fruit
– meat, including fish
– starchy foods
– yeasty breads

Avoid EGGS combined with:

– dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt)
– meat, including fish
– melons
– bananas
– starches

Avoid CORN combined with:

– bananas
– dates
– raisins

Avoid LEMON combined with: 

– cucumber
– tomato
–  dairy products

Avoid NIGHTSHADES (tomato, potato, eggplant etc.) combined with:

– dairy products
– melon
– cucumber
