View Full Version : Bad food combination?

Purple cabbage with white onions and apple cider vinegar combined with Juiliano's fake pie crust (from RAW the UNcook Book), which consists of chopped dates and almonds, and I add chopped brazil nuts and walnuts too, kneaded together.
What do you think to that combination? When consumed during the same sitting do you think these things wise to combine, or do they stand out as being a particularly bad combination?

vegetables and nuts can combine, not sure if i'd throw dates in the mix.
if you're having an upset stomach, it could be from the cabbage and/or raw onion. those things don't sit well for me in large amounts.
listen to your body, though. you'll eventually lean toward good food combining intuitively, best not to stress about it or staying raw can be difficult.

If you want to be concerned with food combining, you should avoid eating nuts with anything, maybe with the exception of dried fruit. So to answer your question, eating cabbage and onions with nuts isn't so hot and might cause some digestion probs. But I find food combining kind of limiting :o (not to mention overwhelming and tedious!) and have found that my body will tell me what combinations are working and those that aren't! Try it and see if it works for you. :)

i don't even concern myself about food combining. i believe as we progress on this raw journey our BODY will lead us to the foods we need to consume... if we choose to listen. :)

Thanks. It was mainly the dates with vegetables I was concerned about.

Thank you both for your posts too. I agree with that; it is a drag, and, from what I have heard, it is also an individual thing (food combinations). Experimentation is the key.
I was hoping it would do as a temporary measure. I will be ordering a dehydrator within the next few days, so my options will not be so limited. I am in the UK and considering a nine tray Excalibur, despite it only having a 12-month warranty and costing twice as much as it does in the US!

hmm well i've heard from other raw foodies that its best not to combine sugary fruits and fats because they can potentially give you unwanted high blood sugar levels and that its alway best to have the fruit and the veggies or the nuts and the veggies... hope that helps :)
p.s. best of luck with your recipes :D
