Combining Fruits

Posted by Lisa

When making a fruit salad, you should never combine acid fruits with sweet fruits (for digestive purposes).  This now explains why when I eat strawberries and bananas, although yummy, I get a tummy ache. You can, however, combine sub-acid fruits with either acid fruits or sweet fruits. Here are the lists

ACID FRUITS
Strawberries
Grapefruit
Oranges
Lemons (lemons combine well with all plant foods)
Pineapple
Raspberries
Cranberries
Tangerines
Limes

SWEET FRUIT
Bananas
Papaya
Dates
Figs
Raisins
Prunes
Other dried fruits

SUB-ACID FRUITS (can combine with either of the 2 above lists)
Apples
Apricots
Blackberries
Blueberries
Cherries
Nectarines
Peaches
Pears Mangos
Plums
Grapes

Eat MELONS alone because they do not digest well with other foods. Any of the melons can be combined with each other (honey dew, cantalope, watermelon, etc.) .
