FOOD COMBINING CHART

Since so many of you had questions about food combining after my last blog post, The Food Combining Trick for Weight Loss and Optimal DigestionI wanted to create an easy-to-read chart for you to use.  A cheat sheet, if you will.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this or any foods you’d like me to add to this!

      Soy would be considered a protein, but I, personally, don’t recommend it because of it’s estrogenic properties. The only soy I would recommend in moderation would be organic, non-GMO fermented soy.

    Confused… corn is on the list of starches and non starches? Corn in non starches is not cooked corn? Who eats raw corn? Tomatoes are listed in the non starchy can go with anything,.. I just read tomato sauce doesn’t go with starches, aka pastas… Is cooked tomato sauce different from a raw tomato sauce? And what about coconut milk? Is that the same as the young coconut category?

      Hi David,

      I used to think raw corn was weird, but it’s actually super tasty! So yes, that’s correct, raw corn is non-starchy and cooked corn is a starch.

      Tomatoes can go with anything, but some people do better not combining it with anything. You’ll have to experiment and see what works best for you!

      Coconut milk would be categorized as a young coconut, correct!

      If you can tolerate dairy, you can try having it on it’s own. Some people find they can combine it with protein and feel fine. Experiment and see how it works for you. And pasta, along with processed food, is not on the list, because I don’t recommend it, but it would fall in the starch category. Hope that helps!
