Consuming vegetables and fruits on daily basis is highly important for our overall health. However, there are some things which we shouldn’t experiment with, such as mixing two fruits or vegetables or eating them at the same time. Not only does mixing two types of fruits and vegetables can be unhealthy, but it can also be fatal. Down below we have a list of foods that you must never mix:
CARROTS AND ORANGES
Carrot and orange juice is a popular combination, however it should be noted that it can result in heartburn as well as excess bile reflux. In some cases, it has even been reported to cause kidney damage as well as other problems that might be fatal.
MILK AND PINEAPPLE
Pineapple is rich in bromelain which is why it must never be mixed with milk. If combined, the combination can cause headaches, stomach pain, nausea, infections, diarrhea and other issues which make it highly dangerous for babies.
LEMON AND PAPAYA
Consuming this mix might result in anemia as well as problems with your haemoglobin levels. Avoid consuming this mixture and avoid giving it to your children as well.
BANANA AND GUAVA
Mixing and consuming guava and banana can cause acidosis and gasses, resulting in a feeling of nausea and headaches.
MILK AND ORANGE
If you’re one of those people who add orange juice to the cereal, stop right now. It makes your stomach unable to process the starch from the cereal and once it gets mixed with milk, it is very hard to digest and will result in health issues.
You can only mix fruits with other fruits. Down below are some suggestion by groups:
-Sweet – feel free to combine sweet fruits that don’t contain acid such as bananas, apples, plums, cantaloupe and watermelon.
-Acidic – these fruits are packed with citric acid and can be safely mixed. Some examples are lemon, orange, blueberries, grapes, kiwis, and grapefruit.
-Semi-Acidic – these fruits are low in acid. You can safely mix these fruits. Some examples are raspberry, mango, apples and strawberry.
-Neutral – fruits that contain more vitamins, oils, salts and protein are avocado, almonds, peanuts, walnuts and coconut.
