Combining Different Foods
Is there something they don't want you to know about food combining? There are many food combinations that are good and food combining is important for your overall health.
I'd like to begin talking about food combining and using the illustration of eating a hamburger and bun, why that could be the cause of your indigestion, gas and bloating. When you eat a hamburger and bun, the protein's secrete digestive enzymes because it needs an acidic environment. Carbohydrates require an alkaline environment secrete digestive enzymes accordingly as well. So releasing those digestive enzymes essentially you can see there's a possibility that they could actually neutralize each other out and slow down digestion. What happens when you slow down digestion?

Better Health Relies On Listening To Your Gut Instincts
When it comes to your health and healthy foods, do you listen to your head or what your gut is literally telling you? It seems everyday, we are bombarded with labels surrounding the foods we eat like "this food is healthy", "this food is fattening", "have this for breakfast", and "don't eat that for your snack".
I am here to say that this type of thinking stifles our ability to really find out what each of us has to do to become healthier. In today's podcast, I discuss why when it comes to better foods, we should begin to think outside the box and not only eat what's in a box. To listen to or download this podcast, follow the link.
