Who’s getting stuffed for the holidays–you or the turkey? Healthy digestion tips (plus a free download!)
We’ve all done it: Try though we may to eat well over a holiday, we just eat too much and end up feeling awful. With Thanksgiving around the corner and more decadence coming shortly after, this is Part I of my healthy digestion primer for surviving without feeling like you need more intestines.
I have two main tools in my digestion toolbox for feeling good and not gaining a ton of weight when the foods get rich and the eating is social. One is plant enzymes (which I’ll cover in part II) and the other is proper food combining.
Why bother with proper food combining? For starters, it helps your digestive system and all the natural enzymes your body produces work smarter and more efficiently. Without the stress of breaking down every possible food group all at the same time, your body keeps a more balanced Ph, properly absorbs nutrients, maintains its ideal weight and you feel energized (instead of needing a nap!).
The basic rules are simple:
1. Never eat protein and starch together.
2. Always allow proper time for foods to digest before changing categories.
3. Fruit is always eaten alone – especially melon
Easy, right? If you want my FREE food combining chart (suitable for framing or just sticking on the fridge with the magnet you got from your mechanic) click here for the download. It’ll give you all the details you need to combine like a pro!
And, if this is not for you or you have trouble sticking to it, remember to tune in for my next post when I’ll get into the nuts and bolts of using food enzymes.
