View Full Version : Optimal Fruit Combos
I have been reading up on the correct fruit combinations, by correct I mean optimally digested together. So you are suppose not mix fruit categories in the same meal. There is the Acid, Sub Acid, Sweet, Melons and Berry Categories. Do any of you practice this? I have to say that I really do notice disturbances when I mix sweet with acid like in the case of an orange and banana smoothie for example.

I have not noticed anything "bad" when I mix up my fruit. Just about every morning I blend up a shake with whatever fruit I have in the house. It just about varies every day. I mix acid fruits with sub-acid and with sweet.
Perhaps, I just haven't got to the point where I feel a difference?

I've been trying to somewhat follow the food combining rules, but since I'm new, I'm giving myself some room so I can play with the recipes. But, I can say that I definately notice the difference with cantelope. On my SAD I always love cantelope with the scoop of cottage cheese...but I always felt uncomfortable, too full and extremely bloated. I thought I just ate too much melon, and I only did it on occassions. I can eat 1/2 a cantelope now and not feel full like that, feel very comfortable, in fact, be ready for more in less than an hour. I haven't tried much fruit combining unless in the same category...I just thought I'd respond to your post. Hope your having a great day! Sonja.

I tend to eat one type of fruit at a time. So, in this sense I do practice fruit combining rules, because I mix only one type! :D I like eating like this. It feels natural to me.
When I make a salad, I use acidic fruit in the dressing, for example orange or strawberries (usually mixed with tahini).
In the morning, we make smoothies for our children, which may not always have the perfect combination of fruit in them. At this stage, I do not worry about that. Rather, I am glad that my children have progressed from cooked to a high raw diet.
