16. No Acids with Carbohydrates
Acids, like lemon juice, vinegar or buttermilk and carbohydrates, like high starch and sugar are both digest slowly and will make you feel bloated.
17. No Pure Fats with High Starches
Don’t mix pure fats, like lard, butter, and cream with high starches, like potatoes, rice, and pasta. We’re not saying you should totally eighty-six mashed potatoes but, if you do indulge, make it in small portions and not with every meal.
18. Extra-Virgin Oils with Veggies, Grains & Proteins
Small amounts of unrefined, extra-virgin oils, like olive, flaxseed, coconut eaten with vegetables, grains, and proteins helps your body absorb the nutrients. It’s no mystery that olive oil is a “good” fat, but coconut oil is also a natural probiotic and great for keeping you “regular.”
