An ongoing series in which we talk to trusted people in the wellness industry (or simply those we know have their wellness shit together).
Constantly on the lookout for new ways to modify and update my wellness routine the topic of food combining has recently been on my mind. As I explored this way of eating, I figured I’d bring in the big guns to better explain – Melissa Wood Tepperberg, a health and wellness coach, model (obvious, I know) and a mom! She breaks down for us (in an easy to digest way -haha!) what food combining is exactly, the benefits of eating this way and how to begin. @melissawoodhealth www.melissawoodhealth.com
The basics of food combing:
+ Eat fruit on an empty stomach, alone and preferably in the morning
+ Eat proteins with greens
+ Eat grains with greens
+ Don’t mix grains and proteins
+ Graduate your meals throughout the day – lightest in the morning to heaviest at night
Watch the video and refer to the chart below for a more complex look at how meals are broken down or combined rather and try it out for a week or so to gauge if eating this way agrees with you!
