Proper Food Combining

Wow! Where does the time go!?    This time it's gone to taking care of the last revisions on the book, and canning, freezing or drying what's left from the garden. 
Something I looked into years ago has been coming to mind more lately, which is proper food combining.  Basically, different foods require different enzymes to digest properly.  When we eat foods together needing different enzymes there is a greater chance, for instance, of indigestion and poor absorbtion of nutrients.  The general groups to eat together are;  proteins with veggies, grains with veggies, fruit with fruit (except melon only with melon).  I do not do this all the time, but when I've stuck with it for even a week or two I have seen positive results; one more notch above dropping meat, dairy, and refined sugars and flours from the diet.  There are alot of sites referring to this.  Of the current ones I checked out online, I like for their user friendly,  detailed information, including helpful food lists and charts.  I hope this information proves useful to you, maybe even the piece of the puzzle you've been looking for!
Have a joyous and blessed day!
