Boost Your Digestion Naturally With These Food Combining Tips


I want to share some valuable insights into the practice of food combining that I’ve seen make a big difference for many in Best of You. 

While we may not always think much about it…

The way we put our meals together has a significant impact on our digestion and overall health.

Did you know that different foods require different enzymes and conditions in the stomach to break down and absorb properly? 

Foods like proteins need an acidic environment to digest smoothly. 

Meanwhile, starches and carbohydrates do best in a more alkaline state.

When we mix proteins, carbs and other items without considering their digestion rates…

It puts stress on our systems. 

This can lead to issues like gas…



And impaired nutrient uptake over time.

The solution is to apply food combining principles when preparing plates. 

Pair proteins like meat, fish, eggs and legumes with non-starchy veggies for balanced acid-base digestion. 

Eat fruits alone or with small additions of nuts or greens since they exit the stomach quickly. 

And opt for complex carbs teamed with leafy or cruciferous veggies as well.

Beyond avoiding tummy troubles…

Strategic combining supports overall wellness in important ways. 

It helps ensure you benefit fully from the micronutrients in food. 

And studies show combined meals increase satiety to support weight and blood sugar goals naturally.

I hope you’ve found these insights on food combining helpful for supporting your digestion. 

Proper meal planning makes such a difference…

But it can be difficult to stay consistent without the right guidance.
