Food combinations that you must avoid

food combinations

People now eat to treat their taste buds more than to take care of their health. They are even ready to try combination of foods that Ayurveda states as contradictory combos. As per Ayurveda, regular consumption of contradictory food may cause skin diseases and arthritis. You can improve your immunity and lead a happy and long life by following some strict food habits.

It is said that most food items contain small traces of toxins, which usually don't affect the body. However, when combined with certain other food items, the amount of toxins that reach the body increases. Every place has its own unique diet and eating habits depending upon the season, climate, and availability of food items. Off late, the culinary trends have been altering significantly in Kerala owing to the changing lifestyles. People tend to turn away from indigenous food items and traditional methods of cooking to fast food that appeals to their taste buds better.

Consuming meat and eggs of chickens injected with hormones should be avoided. Similarly, make sure that organically grown vegetables are included in your diet.
