You Should Always Avoid These 7 Food Combinations
What you eat is an important part of our everyday lives. We can’t do without it; but, we can’t do with too much of it, or the wrong portions of it, either. Too many things to keep in mind, don’t you think? We get it. It’s not easy, or even humanly possible, most times to follow every single rule in the book when it comes to food. But we’ve put together a few of the most important ones that you would do well to keep in mind before you put that spoonful of food into your mouth.
YOU SHOULD ALWAYS AVOID THESE 7 FOOD COMBINATIONS
1. Lime and Cough medicine
Limes can block the enzymes that break down statins, while cough medicine such as dextromethorphan can accumulate in the bloodstream if statins aren’t broken down properly, causing massive damage to the liver.
2. Dairy Products and Antibiotics
Some antibiotics can bind to iron, calcium and other minerals in dairy products, which will prevent the full absorption of the drugs and reduce your body’s ability to fight infections. Whenever you’re prescribed a new medication, you should ask your doctor what class it falls in. If it’s tetracycline or fluoroquinolone, you shouldn’t take it with milk or yogurt.
3. Lentils and Red Wine
Red wine is rich in tannins, rare compounds that can inhibit the absorption of iron from plants like soybeans or lentils.
4. Milk and Bananas
Although many people love a nice banana milkshake, the combination of milk and bananas is totally wrong. This combination will make your feel heavy and cause digestive troubles which is why it should be avoided. If you can’t live without a banana milkshake, use ripe bananas and add a bit of nutmeg and cardamom in the shake as well.
5. Drinking Water During Meals
Doctors are warning that drinking water during or immediately after a meal can seriously interfere with your digestion. Make sure to drink water 30 minutes before or after your meals in order to help your body absorb nutrients from the food properly.
6. Melons And Grains
Melons are easily digestible whole grains take longer. Combining these two food items can upset your stomach.
7. Eggs and Milk
Eggs and milk should not be combined together even if it seems to you a harmless combination. These two ingredients on the long run can cause some major damage resulting from the structural difference in the proteins of both food products. This makes the absorption difficult when combined together.
