Food Combination and Green Smoothies
Smoothie Question: What about food combination and green smoothies? I always heard that mixing fruits and vegetables was bad for the digestive system. How true is that?Thirsty? Check out more delicious and healthy smoothie recipes!
Smoothie Answer: The answer is yes and no... Some fruits and vegetables should not be eaten together. For instance...
Melons should be eaten by themselves. They are digested quicker than most other foods. If eaten with other foods, most people get gas and feel very bloated. So, eat melons 30 minutes before your other food. Or you can wait 2 hours after you eat. Melons do make a tasty appetizer.
If you research green smoothies and combining greens and fruit, you'll find that greens are digested more readily if combined with fruit.
Check out Victoria Boutenko's books on green smoothies, "Green for Life" and "Green Smoothie Revolution". She explains why it's okay to drink your greens and fruit together in one smoothie.
