Sample Menu: Food Combining

In the beginning, the easiest way to get into the habit of food combining is to divide your meals into categories.  Later on, when it is second nature to you, it is not necessary to be so structured.  Right now, for the sake of simplicity, try to think of your meals like this:

Breakfast = Fruit
Lunch = Protein + Veggies
Dinner = Starch + Veggies

Depending on the day that you are having, it is totally fine to swap your lunch and dinner meals.  However, always keep fruit in the morning and by itself.  If you are a coffee drinker, have your coffee first thing (like I needed to tell you that…) and on a empty stomach.  And for my sandwich lovers, while you are transitioning to a sandwich-free existence, here are two Food Combining friendly options that can be used as your Starch Meal:

1. Almond Butter and Honey on sprouted grain bread
2. Veggie Sandwich (lettuce, tomato, avocado, grilled veggies, etc.) with hummus on sprouted grain bread  (I like this brand.)

Happy Combining!!
