In order to assimilate and utilize our food for fuel proper food combining is a wonderful tool to guide us. When food is broken down into nutrients with ease in our stomach we can be sure that the digestive tract is able to easily break down food converting it into usable energy. When proper food combining takes place we know that fats are broken down into fatty acids, carbohydrates are converted into Glucose or usable energy and protein transforms into amino acids. With these building blocks we can build lean, clean, strong bodies. They we are able to build muscle, hair, skin and bones and re-manufacture our own metabolic enzymes and hormones.
If you start to incorporate proper food combining you may notice weight loss, more energy, ease of digestion (no constipation, diarhea or gas/bloating) and an overall sense of well-being.
When foods are improperly combined this allows for food to ferment, putrify, and go rancid. This naturally attracts parasites, yeast mold and fungus.
Three wonderful tools to incorporate in your life in order to properly break down your foods and nourish yourself are to:
Take high quality enzymes with your meals.
Add fermented foods into your diet such as kim chi, cultured vegetables & miso.
Add coconut water kefir or dairy kefir into your daily routine depending on your unique body
Enzymes help break down the food in our bodies. Because the soil is mineral and enzyme deficient here in the U.S. we must supplement with enzymes in order to get the most out of the food. If we grow our own food in mineral rich soil well we might not require enzymes.
Cultured vegetables contain highly potent probiotics which help break down the food as well.
Coconut water kefir or milk kefir are also superfoods that do wonders for cleansing and restoring balance to the inner eco system. If you choose dairy kefir the best way to do this is buy obtaining raw organic grass fed milk and making it yourself.
Here is a simple food chart for those whom want to get the most out of their foods:
