View Full Version : Confused about food combining
11-28-2005, 11:24 AM
Alissa's book says not to combine fruits with other foods, especially not dates and bananas. Then a great deal of the crusts are nuts and dates, there is even a pie with blueberries and nuts and bananas and dates... Also, no grains and fruits. I really like soaked oats with banana and walnuts.
How important is it that we stick to the food combining?

Many of the recipes in Alissa's book are transitional recipes. Alissa herself says in her video that she from day to day eats very simply and sometimes eats 6 bananas for breakfast, but the recipes are once in a while, etc.
I think it's a matter of what you think your own body can tolerate. Some days I am fine with some date-nut torte for example, other days it makes me feel bloated and gassy.
IMO--It depends on a persons digestive fire/capability. For me, I cannot handle nuts and fruits together without getting bloated. I can handle some soaked almonds and veggies much easier. Some people can handle it with ease others cannot. It is a trial and error process. Have fun experimenting with the healthy food versus trying to do it "right". I get in trouble every time I try to be perfect!! :rolleyes:
Best of luck,

Yep! When you are first starting out for MOST people trying to do all the rules and things will result in you wanting to give up. You have to just eat raw when you're first starting out!
Overtime, your body will adjust and cleanse and it will begin to let you know what you can and cannot tolerate. Many of us started out eating many recipes and a lot of nuts and a lot of "poorly combined" foods and it's fine...but then after a while, we let up on a lot of that and just go for more simple foods.
Allow it to happen, don't try to MAKE it happen. Eat what you feel comfortable eating...if it doesn't make you feel sick or anything, eat it...if it ever does begin to make you feel uncomfortable, then that's when you start tweaking and paying more attention to food combining, lower the nut consumption, etc.
