What about decaffeinated coffee? I know there's still some caffeine left, but should it be considered an acid food? (I haven't read anything about caffeine vis-a-vis food combining yet, but I only drink decaffeinated coffee or tea, no soda, etc.)

Re fine tuning it - more questions: from Veggie on 2006-10-26

Legumes - a class of vegetables that includes beans, peas and lentils are typically low in fat, contain no cholesterol, and are high in protein, folate, potassium, iron and magnesium.
Soybeans, one type of legume, are unique among beans because they contain all of the amino acids needed to make a complete protein, just like meat.
-Tofu is a curd made from soybeans
-Soy milk is a soy beverage made by grinding soybeans and mixing them with water
- since humus is made from chick peas (legumes) they are high in protein. But also has fat contents because of olive oil & tahini sause(sesame seeds)
In a vegiterian diet the legumes play a very important role as they are the main source of protein.

Coconut milk (not coconut water, both are different) is very high in fat.. contains 80 to 88\% fat.. depending on the dilution. does contain protien but 2-3 \%. is main ingredient in many thai & south indian curries.

Mango - high in carbohidrates & low in protien. lots of fible. but a very healthy food.

Hi,I would like to know if rice milk is better for you than soy milk.I have been using soy milk for smoothies and heard it is good for many purposes.Thanks Carol

Re: a few questions: from Peter on 2007-04-06

Soy contains high levels of plant chemicals that mimic the effect of oestrogens in the body.
These are not good for children, and boys in particular should avoid them.
Rice milk is probably the healthier option.

newbie to food combining - questions: from Rachel on 2009-06-08

New to food combining and have a few questions?



1) Kefir works well for me for my digestion. With food combining, can I add raw pumpkin seeds and almonds to Kefir? Also, what fruits can I add on top of this?

2) Rice and beans make a complete protein so can I eat starchy vegetables with it?

3) I love miso soup, so can I had have tofu with miso bean paste - it's all protein right?

4) So basically, I can eat proteins with vegetables and other proteins & fats, starchy food with vegetables, beans could be eaten with protein or starch right?

i suspect i have a wheat allergy so cut it out. notice my digestive system s alot faster if you get my drift. but i love bread so have just started eating alot of rye bread instead, and even though this does not contain wheat it feels as if it has made my digestive system slower again? can anybody tell me if there is something in rye bread which might be bad? thanks

Re many questions about: from Peter on 2009-07-28

If you suspect a gluten allergy then you must avoid bread that contains wheat, oats, barley, rye, emma, spelt. All these breads contain gluten
