It is like 12am over here… and I´m staring at pictures of food and hoping its almost time for breakfast so that I can have food.

I read this really interesting article about food…

… it talks about how certain food combinations make us not digest well, leading to heart burn, fatigue, bloatiness, etc. I was really surprised when it said you should not combine protein with starch (for instance, beef with potatoes) or how melons should never be combined with any other food.

Here is the whole article. It is wrotten by Ashley Pitman on February 2nd 2012 for MindBodyGreen. 

7 Food Combinations That WON’T Wreak Havoc on Your Health

If you’ve ever felt bloated, burpy, gassy, fatigue or even heartburn after a meal, chances are you’re guilty of bad food combining.
 
With a few simple tweaks to your diet, proper food pairing can have you experiencing more energy, better skin, better sleep and natural weight loss within a couple of days. And, believe it or not, you don’t have to be a vegan,vegetarian or raw foodie to do get results. 
 
The gist of food combining is that different types of foods digest at different rates. When you eat several foods that digest at different rates your digestion gets out of whack and things begin to rot and ferment in your body. This “sludge” turns into stored toxins. And, when your body can’t digest food properly it misses out on being able to absorb the nutrients in food leaving you with low energy, breakouts and poor sleep. It’s an all around bad deal. 
All food combining guidelines take into account the speed at which food digests. Fruit digests the quickest, then greens, then non-starchy vegetables, then starches and then, digesting the slowest, is protein. Eating foods in the correct order (according their transit times) ensures a traffic jam-free (and toxin-free) digestive tract. 
 
When you get the combining right, your body gets to use the nutrients in the food. This leaves you with more energy, which inevitably equals more beauty. 
Here are the food combining basics:
  • Starches Veggies = OK
  • Proteins Veggies = OK
  • Proteins Starches = No No
  • Plant Proteins Plant Proteins = OK
  • Animal Proteins Animal Proteins = No No
  • Starches Starches = OK
  • Fats Proteins = No No (or pair moderately)
  • Fats Carbohydrates = OK
  • Fats Starches = OK
  • Fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach
  • Fruit Raw greens = OK (except melons)
All of these guidelines can seem overwhelming at first, but it’s really quite simple to find meals that work. As a compliment to the lovely Nadya Andreeva’s post, ‘10 Common Food Combinations that Wreck Havoc on Your Health’, here are 7 Food Combinations That Won’t Wreak Havoc on Your Health: 
1. Avocado sushi rolls - Avocado is a fat and rice is a starch.
2. Baked chicken with broccoli - Eat the broccoli first because it’s a non-starchy vegetable, which digests quicker than chicken, which is a protein. 
3. Pasta Primavera - Pasta is a starch and the rest of the ingredients are veggies. 
4. Salad with guacamole and corn chips - Eat the salad and guacamole first because they’re veggies, then the corn chips, which are a starch. 
5. Green salad and grilled fish - Eat the salad first, which is a plant veggie, and then fish second, which is an animal protein. 
6. Apple, followed by scrambled eggs twenty minutes later - The fruit goes first because it digests the quickest, protein comes second because it digests the slowest. 
7. Steak with lightly sautéed spinach - Eat the spinach first because it’s a veggie, then the steak, which is an animal protein. 
I invite you to try a couple of these meals this week OR switch up the order in which you’re eating your current meals.Remember, fruits go first, followed by greens, non-starchy vegetables, starches and protein.

Hope you guys found this as interesting as I did

Sorry for being MIA for like 2 weeks. I just been so busy with university assignments and work (started working as a dance/zumba instructor again). Plus to make it even “better”, I had food posioning which was horrible but thankfully it is gone now; nevertheless, I have a sore throat and fever. October is my lucky month. 

But I am determined to get back on my tumblr and post more stuff (personal things like recipes and progress, and motivation for myself and everyone else).

I WILL FOR EVER LOVE AND FIND THIS PICTURE MOTIVATING

So a few hours ago someone replied to this picture saying:”But how? what is the point to feed unrealistic goals. Unicorn do not exist. That cant be healthy.” (I will not mention the account who said due to reason of privacy and so on). 
This is what I have to say: Ok, Unicorns do not exist, as far as we know for the moment. True, this rhyno will never be nother animal because it was born as a rhyno. I am realistic, I can get that idea. BUT being healthy is not about how you look or how similar you look to someone/something (in the case of the rhyno) you consider perfect. It is about being happy and feeling comfortable being who you are. So, this rhyno will never physically look like a unicorn but it sure can feel like fabulous, soft and shiny unicorn. 
Of course the rhyno will have ups and downs, have bad days and good days, have not so healthy days and have healthy days. But as long as it learns, throughout this journey it is on, that the ultra goal should not be a certain number of weight or fitting in those skinny jeans but feeling good with yourself and proud of who and how you are.
So being healthy is not just about the body but also about the mind. So what if that cute rhyno does not look like the unicorn on the picture? I do not care, I still will think it is cute and awesome, not only because it is a rhyno but because it is a happy cute confident rhyno.

P.S: Plus,who does not love cute little rhynos? *.*
