Milk: from on 2001-09-17

On the fats list it says that milk can be combined with any meal, is this right? There is an * by it, but it doesn't say what that means. Can you please let me know. I am new to this program, and I want it to work for me.

Thank you
Stacy

Hi,

I think I am right in saying that, strictly speaking, you shouldn't really mix milk with either protein or starch - something to do with the acid I think. Milk should really be combined with an alkaline meal - preferably a fruit meal.

I have been using soya milk with my cereals (I've just discovered millet rice - its delicious). Soya milk takes a bit of getting used to but its fine once you've adapted.

Hope this helps

I have just been diagnosed as having a milk allergy can anyone give me some tips on how food combining can help

Re: milk fee diet: from Peter on 2002-02-08

Food Combining encourages you to construct a diet without using the highly refined foods like cake, biscuits etc that often include milk products.

Some people who cannot use milk are having problems with the lactose, and can eat pure low fat yogurts, where the bacteria have removed all the lactose.

If you remove all milk products from your diet you must add calcium tablets - it is almost impossible to get enough calcium from other foods

soy milk: from on 2002-07-26

Hi all!
Just wondering if it is allowed to mix soy milk with any sort of food, as is the case with most vegetables. I have read in a Habgood's book that soya was not concentrated protein food and that it is ok to mix soy milk with wheat and banana for breakfast so I've been doing so accordingly, up until now that is. Thanks!

Tofu is the protein extracted from the soya bean and is a very concentrated form of protein.

If this is mixed with water to form soya milk, then it depends very much on how concentrated the milk is, and how much you use at a meal.
If you are using a lot at a meal then count it as a protein, but if it is only a tiny proportion of a meal then you can count it as a vegetable. Remember that all vegetables include a small amount of protein.
