Fruits After Meals:

Meat or Cheese Omelet:

If you have a weak digestive system, this combo should be strictly avoided. This combo detoxifies your body and you should strictly avoid cheese both with the beans and cheese.
Yogurt and Fruits:
As per Ayurveda, you should not advise anyone to mix sour fruits with any dairy item as it can be disastrous to your digestive tract. It can change the intestinal flora and produce toxins. It can cause congestion, allergies and cough etc. If you like to flavor your yogurt you should be doing so with honey, raisins in place of sour berries.
Oatmeal with Milk and Orange Juice:
Acids present in the orange juice destroy the enzymes which help in digesting starches in the cereal. Not only this, acidic fruits can curdle milk and turn into mucus-forming substance. So, to keep your digestive track healthy you should take the orange juice or any citrus fruit at least half an hour before the oatmeal.
