We bet all food aficionado loves to experiment in the kitchen. Sometimes they combine two foods that have never been combined before. But sometimes, inadvertently, they mix two foods that are harmful to health. So, if you are also one of those people falling into this category, then you should take some time and read this write-up carefully. So, here is the scoop on the five deadliest food combinations you should not even think of eating:
5 Banana and Milk
Mixing these two food combinations is related to Ayurveda. For example, Ayurveda says mixing milk and banana together diminishes the fire (Agni), thus affecting your body’s metabolism and digestion. For the unversed, Ayurveda claims that the human body combines five elements – fire, water, air, earth, and space. Also, if consumed together, bananas and milk create harmful toxins inside your body.
4 Tea and Yogurt
Many of you are unaware that both these foods are acidic in nature. So, if you consume two foods together, you are inadvertently causing harm to your digestion, so if you consume these two foods together and later experience an upset stomach, then you know why.
3 Watermelon and Water
While eating watermelon, your mother must have stopped you several times from drinking water after that. Well, she had a reason for doing so. Watermelon is nothing but a source of water that contains at least 90 to 95 percent of water in it. Several ayurvedic doctors suggest avoiding water after consuming watermelon. By doing this, you are harming your gastrointestinal tract. Also, you invite bacteria and microbes directly as they only develop in the presence of water and sugar. Therefore, consuming water after watermelon increases the number of bacteria and microbes in your stomach, leading to gastrointestinal problems.
2 Meat and Milk
Meat and all type of non-vegetarian dishes should not be mixed with milk. The reason is the difference between their effects on our bodies. Meat has a heating effect while, at the same time, milk provides a cooling effect to your body. So, mixing these two may disrupt the balance in our body, leading to digestive issues. Besides the scientific reason, the answer also lies in the Jewish tradition. According to the Jewish tradition and belief, you sin if you mix meat and milk. Meat is considered a baby in Jewish tradition. So, according to them, how can you cook a baby( kid) in the substance( milk) that was made to nurture it.
1 Lemon and Milk
Our last stop on this list is the deadliest combination ever, milk and lemon. Lemon, a citrus fruit, contains citric acid, so when you combine milk with citric acid, it won’t take long to coagulate. As a result, you may suffer from the problems such as heartburn, allergies, and an upset stomach. Also, this combination may affect those who are lactose intolerant and cannot digest milk very quickly.
