Food Combining Menu Ideas

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

This is the last “installment” for Food Combining. I thought I would give you a few ideas on how to eat this way.

First of all, you might want to try this for one meal for a week or so. If you start with breakfasts, do that for one week; then move onto lunch, and eventually dinners. For example, you might want to try eating fruit alone for breakfast for one week, choosing foods from any of the three groups (acid, sub-acid, sweet). Also, you can combine sweet and sub-acid fruits or acids and sub-acid fruits, but not sweet with acid. Each day you can use different fruits in proper combinations. (See earlier posting on fruit combinations.)

Here’s a fruit salad combo using sub-acid with acid: strawberries (or any berries), kiwi, peach, plum, and grapes.
Or try eating melons alone as a group, mixing cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon.
Wait at least 20 minutes before eating proteins or starches.

For lunch, you can eat a tossed garden salad with greens, tomatoes, cucumbers & sprouts. Or you can also combine greens with fruits such as berries, tangerines or apples.

You can follow this with either a protein (ex. tofu, chicken, fish) and green veggie or a starch (pasta with pesto).

For dinner, choose either a starch or protein with veggies, whatever you did not have at lunch.

This is stir fry using edamame beans (soybeans are a complete protein) and veggies.

Please feel free to contact me with questions about Food Combining. It can be challenging, but if you are having digestive problems, this way of eating might help you.

Note: I will be moving this blog onto my website newsletter in September. My website is www.menupause.info. I hope you will continue to follow Nobody Eats Like Me on menupause and subscribe to that website.
