Renewing the Mind, Body, and Spirit through juicing

Food combining is a complex subject that I will write a full article on in the near future. But for now, let me say that for most people, food combining is not as important as many raw foodists think. It’s “fine tuning” for a serious raw foodist – to squeeze out the maximum amount of nutrition and absorbtion from everything you eat. When you are eating 100% raw for a while, that will become more important. But for the average raw foodist, who often starts out 75% raw or so, food combining is not a high priority. You have more important things to worry about than whether or not an apple in your green juice is a good idea or not. Just drink the juice!

In general, food combining rules say not to mix fruits and veggies. The reason for that is that they require different enzymes to digest, so optimal digestion and absorption occurs when you eat them separately, or about 30 minutes apart. But if it take one apple or some lemon in a whole glass of powerful, nutrient rich green juice to make it palatable for you, the benefits of drinking the juice with the apple, and enjoying it (an important part of your digestion process IS enjoying your food) – then add an apple!
