Bitesize 13 - There is a Season - Matching Food to the Time of Year

Unleashing the Power of Food: Recipes to Heal ByFood Combining CookbookFood Combining and Digestion: Easy to Follow Techniques to Increase Stomach Power and Maximize DigestionIn several cultures, particularly Oriental ones, food is matched to the time of year. Hearty foods are left for late Fall and into the Winter. Lighter meals are reserved for Spring and Summer. While food matching also happens in North America, we seem to be more interested in food combining. This is practice of not eating certain categories of food at the same time. For example, food combining wisdom says that you should not eat meat protein and carbohydrates together.

That said, our food consumption is influenced by many factors, including advertising, and we sometimes fall prey to food fads about what to eat and when to eat. My philosophy has been, for many years, to eat only when you are hungry, and to eat what your body tells you it feels like having. Old wisdom says that your body knows what it needs. Over the years, advice like this, which is really common sense, has somehow been lost in. We don't trust our instincts because doing so is portrayed negatively. But our body really does know what's best for it. And even when you're on a diet of some form, short of serious health problems, if you feel like eating something you "shouldn't", it's less stress on your body and mind to just go ahead and eat it than to fret about whether you should or not.
