I hear that many people do not like to mix fish and dairy products (such as yogurt) together as it can lead to some allergies or you can be poisoned. But is that true?
Maybe it is not that tasty to mix seafood with dairy together, but if the combination was harmful, maybe more than half the population would be in trouble. Right?
Actually, that combination doesn’t cause food poisoning but it can only lead to some digestive problems.
In other words, some food, if mixed improperly in the digestive system, will cause distress.
- A seafood combination is fine if no other food groups are eaten at the same time, apart from salads. Any fish meal is ideal with salads or cooked vegetables.
- Yogurt is best eaten alone or with a simple addition of slices of apple, apricot or peach.
The idea is that you eat fish and yogurt at separate meals. Why?
Protein-rich foods require a highly acidic environment for digestion while carbohydrates and fats require a more alkaline medium. So fish and yogurt need two different environments for digestion. If ingested together, your stomach produces a medium where both foods will not be well digested and that is the cause of all sorts of digestive stress, including gas, heartburn, cramps, bloating, constipation, and so on.
Keep the meals simple and you will have a better digestion.
