Raw food combining question
Okay, if there are any experienced raw foodists on this forum (or simply digestive experts), I need your input. I'm currently trying to stick with an 100% raw food diet.
Obviously that involves eating TONS of fruit. There is all kinds of information online about which kinds of fruits combine with with (ex. sub-acid, acid, sweet, etc). But I was wondering if smoothies combine well with solid food?
Obviously your body can only take in so much juice at a time. Therefore, often I supplement my smoothies with solid fruit to make sure I stay full. Is that bad for digestion, even if I'm following the acid-sub-acid-sweet fruit combining rules?
For intance, if I drink a pear smoothie while eating pears at the same time, is that bad? Thanks for your input!
As far as I know, this would not be bad at all. I have been doing this for a while and have never noticed any digestive problems. There is not much of a difference between digesting blended fruit and whole fruit, other than that the fiber's either ripped to shreds or not. Even whole fruit only takes about half an hour to digest so the digestibility is probably not an issue.
