3 Things to avoid:
• Drinking water during and after the water
This can cool down the “fire” in your belly, the one that both Ayurveda and Chinese medicine believe is needed in order to digest your food properly. Normally you drink water to “chase down” the food, which means that you didn’t chew the food enough and it is not diluted enough.
• Eating fruit alone or leave it alone
The principles of food combining tell us that fruit should not be combined with anything because it digests a lot faster than most other things. Ideally eaten on an empty stomach and waiting 30-40 mins before consuming anything else. When fruit is combined with other stuff, it can cause fermentation, stinky gas, indigestion and lots of discomfort.
• Eating a heavy breakfast
Anything that could take 4-5 hours to digest (eggs and bacon anyone) could wreck havoc for the rest of the day. The partially digested food will then have to deal with the new meal (lunch) and that will slow down the digestion process. By dinner time, your body is in turmoil trying to handle 3 partially digested meals at the same time.
Now that you know 3 ways you are ruining your digestion, what are some things you can do to make it an easy process:
• Eat something raw at every meal
A leafy green salad, a big portion of avocado or some celery sticks are great veggies in their raw form that are also easy to digest. This will add enzymes to your meal and will help your body break down the food more efficiently.
• Take digestive enzymes with your cooked meals
This will help you digest food properly, especially if the meal is not properly combined (say chicken parmesan sandwich and a sweet drink).
• Eat from light to heavy
This is tricky. Essentially it means B’fast should be light yet nourishing (think green smoothies or chia pudding), lunch densely nourishing, highest in calories (think big salad, cooked veggies and some grains) and dinner should be lighter than lunch and should ideally be eaten before 8: 00 p.m. Think more cooked veggies and lean protein or lentil soup. After 10/11pm your body is in “cleansing mode” and it will be much harder to digest all that food.
