View Full Version : Any books w/recipes following food combining?

Does anyone know any, especially for desserts? I recently followed food combining and find my flatulence gone. I love sweets but almost all dessert recipes do not follow food combining. Thanks in advance.
Edited to add: I know the rules, but I just want to find dessert recipes that follow the rules.

Gariel Cousins maybe?
I don't follow food combining, so I'm not sure, although I do know what it is.
I would sub coconut for the nuts in desserts, that should work for food combining.
I would think food combining rules apply to all foods including desserts. Fruit is always eaten alone and either on empty stomach or after 4-5 hours after meals with other food groups. Raw veggies do not require such long digestion time. If you are eating a raw diet you should not be consuming any meat,dairy or sugar and this will make food combining much easier.
You will find a lot of great, easy to follow info on food combining in a book called The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose.

THanks for all your replies. I know food combining rules well, but I just can't seem to find any desserts in all my raw books that follow the rules. Even Ann Wigmore, who advocates strongly prudent food combination, use recipes for desserts that do not follow the food combining rules. The only dessert that I have made and love and follows the food combining rules is butter pecan ice cream, but without the pecans.

Dr. Douglas Graham's recipe book called "High Energy Diet Recipe Guide" practices proper food combining rules. That's the only one I know that does. It does have a section with raw dessert recipes. Dr. Graham's website is http://www.doctorgraham.cc/

Linda1970... You could make some raw pies with a crust just made of dates processed with water. You can make the filling by freezing banana or mango and then putting it through a food processor and then freezing the entire pie.
Also, you could make fudge by processing equal parts bananas and dates and then putting a tablespoon of raw carob.

Along with what Margi said, you can also do crusts made with buckwheat because buckwheat is said to be botanically a fruit and not a grain. Maybe soak/sprout/dehydrate some buckwheat and grind it up with dates. You could also do a blueberry pie...for example, if you have Alissa's book, make her blueberry pie with NO crust because the blueberries (after it's chilled and set) become geletanous and firm and it's sliceable.
You could also perhaps use dried fruit as a base such as dehydrated banana slices, strawberry slices, apple slices, etc.
I think that with a little creativity many recipes could be converted to more food combining-friendly recipes! :) If I were to make a mock salmon pate', I'd just use more carrots and celery and omit the walnuts or something like that, for example.

The High Energy Diet Recipe Guide by Dr. Graham
Instant raw Sensations by Frederic Patenaude
These books mostly follow proper food combining.
