You may have heard it before that when two great things come together, magic happens. Well, it may be partially true. One cannot simply deny the fact that spaghetti tastes amazing with meatballs (stirred in marinara sauce), but what most people don’t know is that the food combination can wreak havoc on your health.
That’s right. Every pair of foods that tastes great together is not particularly good for your health. In fact, some of them can be more harmful than you think.
- Bananas and milk:
While a lot of people love the taste of banana milkshake, it is not exactly the ideal food combination for your healthy body. The combination is quite heavy, and it forms toxin, which often has adverse effects on your health.
- Cheese and meat:
No matter how you have this combination of food, it will lead to the same result – indigestion; be it cheesy meatballs, meat in fondue or cheese sauce pasta with meat. Cheese and meat, both are high in protein which makes it difficult for our internal organs to digest the food.
- Tomato with cheese sauce pasta:
Well, a certain amount of people does love tomatoes in their pasta, but unfortunately, that’s a harmful combination. The tomatoes are acidic in nature and pasta is starchy. When carbohydrate combines with acid, it causes fatigue as well as digestive problems.
- Animal protein and starch:
As mentioned before, the spaghetti (starch) and meatballs (animal protein) do not make a healthy food combination. Proteins and carbohydrates require separate digestive enzymes to process, and when they are consumed together, it creates various digestive problems.
- Fruit with yogurt:
Yogurt is believed to be healthy, but not when it is consumed with fruits. This combination triggers a myriad of sufferings including indigestion, sinus congestion, cold, cough and even allergies.
- Oatmeal with milk and orange juice:
When orange juice is consumed with oatmeal or cereal, the acid in it destroys the digestive enzymes that process starch. Also, if there’s milk with the oatmeal and you have it alongside orange juice, the acidic property of the juice can coagulate the milk and turn it into a heavy mucus-forming thing.
We often don’t think about the consequences before gorging on our meal, but to lead a healthy life, we need to pay more attention to our diet.
