Some combinations are magical, others will give you metabolism over your head. Learn to make a difference with a simple scheme.
There are a few rules that you should consider for meals as healthy as possible, and they are also easy to keep in mind:
1. Proteins do not combine with high carbohydrate foods.
This means that a meal that includes meat (of any kind), dairy products, eggs, nuts and seeds or olives should not be combined with bread, pasta, rice, pork, potatoes, cereals.
2. Proteins can be combined with vegetables. Vegetables can combine with high carbohydrate foods.
It is basically a rule that strengthens the first. The combinations can be creative, the most important to avoid being the one that most Romanians learned at home from the infancy. Tuna salad is healthy but not toast near. Potato salad is also healthy, but without cooked eggs next door.
3. Fruits eat separately, not dessert.
Fruits pass the fastest through our digestive system, so combining them with other foods can be problematic. Experts recommend eating simple fruits, a few hours away from other meals or snacks.
