The ideal meal, in our opinion, is a bowl of fresh fruits and vegetables. We chop every fruit and salad item in our refrigerator, add lime juice and a little salt, and declare it to be the healthiest meal ever. Is this, however, the best course of action? If you don't classify your fruits while combining them as acidic, sweet, or neutral, you need a tutorial in how to make salads. To begin with, you shouldn't combine fruits and vegetables. Second, some fruit combinations should never even be attempted. This largely relies on how quickly various fruits and vegetables are digested. Perhaps the numerous changes you are making prevent you from absorption and digestion at their best. 

Here's how to pick what to put in your bowl the following time. 

Never eat fruits or veggies together 

The digestion of fruits and vegetables differs. Fruits digest more quickly, and according to some nutritionists, they are already partially digested when they reach the stomach. Additionally, fruits contain more sugar than vegetables, which can make it difficult for vegetables to be digested. For the same reason, one shouldn't combine orange and carrot because doing so could result in heartburn and excessive bile reflux.

For improved digestion, avoid combining sweet fruits like bananas and raisins with acidic fruits like grapefruits and strawberries, as well as sub-acidic foods like apples, pomegranates, and peaches. You can, however, combine fruits with different acid levels. Guavas and bananas shouldn't be combined for a similar reason. According to some research, the combination may even make you more likely to experience headaches, acidity, and nausea. 

Never combine high protein and carbohydrate foods 

Very few fruits are naturally starchy. Plantains and green bananas are a couple of these. But a lot of veggies, including corn, potatoes, black-eyed peas, cowpeas, and water chestnuts, are starchy by nature. Never combine them with foods strong in protein, such as raisins, guava, spinach, or broccoli. This is so that your body can properly digest proteins, which require an acidic base, and carbohydrates, which require an alkaline base. 

Never eat melons along with melons 

Melons are abstinent. Never do they pair up with another player. Eat them alone because they could not digest well when combined with other fruits. They digest more quickly than most other fruits due of their high water content. Do not combine your honeydews, watermelons, muskmelons, or cantaloupe with other fruits. 

Know These Fruity Tips 

Pick four to six fruits to eat at once. 

Papaya, which includes the enzyme papain, can help break down proteins if you've consumed a lot of them. 

If you overindulged in carbohydrates, such as pasta, avoid eating an apple the following morning because your body will have to work harder to digest the complex carbohydrates in apples. This helps avoid bloating that could otherwise be brought on by simple carbohydrates like those found in pasta. 

Have a fruit high in water, like watermelon, the following morning if you overate salt, to help your body flush it out.
