We all know that fruits should always be consumed on an empty stomach and but did you know that sweet fruits such as bananas and figs shouldn’t be eaten with acidic fruits such as pineapples or strawberries. Here are 10 more fruits combinations that should never be eaten together.
#1. Orange and Carrots
Eating them separately would provide you with your daily dose of vitamin C & A but mix them together and you are in for a lot of heartburn and bile reflux. This combination is popular at places where they sell natural juices but must be avoided at all costs. It can cause heartburn as well as damage the renal system.
#2. Guava and Banana
Another combination that can lead you straight to bed with stomach-ache and headache. Eating banana and guava can cause acidosis and gas which makes one feel nauseous and heavy leading to stomach ache and headache.
#3. Orange and milk
Many people have their daily cereal or oatmeal with a glass of orange juice. But this isn’t a good practice because orange hinders the processing of starch present in cereal. Moreover, when it mixes with milk in your stomach, it causes difficulty in digestion.
#4. Papaya and lemon
Lemon being acidic in nature doesn’t go well with papaya. The combination can cause anaemia or reduce haemoglobin in your blood.
#5. Pineapple and milk

Due to the presence of bromelain, milk or yogurt don’t go well with pineapple. Eating them together can cause a person to feel nauseous, experience stomach-ache or headache, gas or diarrhoea.
#6. Lemon and Tomato
Instead of debating whether tomato is a fruit or a vegetable, just remember not to use lemon for dressing tomato or cucumber salad. Nightshades such as eggplant, tomatoes, chillies or potatoes do not go well with lemon.
#7. Sour fruits and yogurt
Sour fruits shouldn’t be mixed with yogurt as they can diminish the digesting ability of the person consuming it. Moreover, such fruits when eaten with yogurt can also produce toxins and cause congestion, cold, cough and allergies. Though many people love eating yogurt parfait, but sour fruits should be avoided.
#8. Bananas and milk
Bad news banana smoothie lovers! That banana smoothie is very heavy and can cause formation of toxins in the body. It can make you feel drowsy and slow down your mind.
#9. Pomegranate and apricots
Eating protein rich fruits with ones high in sugar can lead to several gastric problems. Sugar negatively impacts the enzymes responsible for digestion thus slowing them down.
Never eat fruits after a meal as fruits don’t go well with other meals. The sugar present in fruits doesn’t take much time to digest. Eating it with other foods will only prolong digestion.
