What is Food combining?

Food combining is based on the theory that different food groups require different digestion times.
Digestion is made easier if we eat food that have a similar digestion time. Protein and starch have different length of time required for good digestion.
Protein takes longer than starch, so they should be eaten at different times.
To take the thinking out of it for you the basic rule state that condensed protein like nuts, meat and diary can be eaten with green leafy vegetables, but can interfere with good digestion when combined with starch vegetables, like potatoes, root veges, and grains and should never be eaten with fruit.
Fruits are best eaten alone, as they are faster than other foods.
You  can relate to how light and energised you feel when you eat a piece of fruit.

The purpose of 'PROPER' Food Combining is to make it easy for our bodies to digest and assimilate our meals.
  • Green leafy vegetables combine with everything
  • Fruits are best eaten with greens and other fruits and not combined with proteins, grain or fats
  • Melons are best eaten alone
  • Starch do not combine well with anything other than green vegetables
  • Proteins such as nuts and seeds may be eaten green leafy vegetables, but not starchy vegetables, like potatoes, grains or fruits.

Preheat the oven to 150, and line or grease a baking sheet. Process all ingredients in the food processor until a dough is formed. Roll out on baking paper by using an other sheet of baking paper on top of the mixture to roll out fine. This is a crisp bread, so try and roll 5cm thick. Bake on a low temp 20 mins or unitl crispy. Be careful not to over bake it. When ready cut with a pizza cutter to get nice neat squares. Serve with fresh humus or simply top with tomato, avocado or eat on its own.

A very healthy snack, lunch or easy dinner.
