Food combining is a centuries-old way of eating for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients. Food combining centers around the idea that meals should be kept simple in order to be digested properly by enzymatic action - the natural way our body works to break down food and absorb nutrients.
So how do we keep our digestive systems healthy? Three things come to my mind when I ask myself that question. 1. We can eat a healthy real food diet. 2. We can utilize herbal bitters to help stimulate the digestive process. 3. We can increase the amount of pre- and probiotics that we consume.
