Baby Step #4 ~ Good Food Combining

Do you want a lightening fast digestion and metabolism?

IMG_1308

Be aware and grow in your awareness of good food combining.

It can truly make a difference in your digestion, and therefore your ability to lose weight if you are looking to do so.  You want a healthy moving digestive track with everything flowing freely, not getting stuck.

The first basic step is to eat fruit alone.  It is best in the morning.  It digests very quickly, and will catch up to other things you have eaten.  (Then it can cause fermentation, gas, bloating, and other fun stuff!)  Thus, keeping it first in the morning is best!  (Unless you eat it all day – like me, but I eat it alone or mixed with tender greens.)

Even fruit needs to be combined properly.  There are several types of fruits.
Here is my food combining song to help master the basics…

Books that I have learned this from (as well as my experience now) are the following:

80/10/10 by Dr. Douglas Graham
Go Fruit Yourself by Freelee

and my own book, sharing my first year of eating this way,

Diary of a Raw Vegan by Raw Jenni (me) is on sale right now for a limited time for $2.99

♦ My 10 Favorite Things About Being RAW Vegan ♦

20131123-002014.jpg

1. WEIGHT LOSS! = Weight goes DOWN!!  I can’t keep my weight down on Raw til 4 or Raw til dinner, or cooked food in general.

2. HEALED = of so many things! Asthma GONE, arthritis GONE, constipation GONE, allergies GONE, digestive issues GONE, teeth sensitivities GONE, dry skin and dry eyes GONE! and more on the way!

3. ALKALINE BODY = No more mosquito bites. The theory is I’m more alkaline now, and mosquitos like acid bodies for lunch 🙂

4. LIGHTER AND CLEANER = I feel lighter and cleaner.

5. DISHES = I only need to rinse my dishes.  No pots or pans to clean or scrub either! Woo!

6. ENERGY = I have more!

7. SLEEP = I sleep better.  I’ll have to monitor this, but I think insomnia is over!

8. EXERCISE = I crave exercise more.

9. TANNING = No longer get burned in the sun. I get pink and tan, but no bad burns.

10. PEACEFUL = Hormonally even. No cramps during cycle! Wayyyy more at peace with myself and the world leading up to this time and during this time!

11. ANIMALS NOT SUFFERING = I forgot this one!  So there’s an 11!  I didn’t come into this lifestyle for the animals, but I’m happy that they aren’t suffering on account of my food choices, now that I’m aware of what’s happening out there!

Don’t forget, a new Baby Steps Challenge starts here on Wednesday!
