Earlier I used to think that Almonds, Dates, Walnuts, Raisins, Cashew, Figs etc. are all Dry fruits,but I was wrong. Most of us eat Cashews with Dates, and Almonds with Raisins, no doubt thesecombinations are delicious but they are digestive disasters, you are bound to have digestionproblems eating like that. Such combinations are not good for health.
Dry Fruits, the fruits which have been dried e.g. Dates, Raisins, Figs, Apricots, Prunes etc. Nuts are thick shelled fruits of treese.g. Almonds, Walnuts, Pistachios, Cashews, Coconut, Peanuts etc. Seeds are the same as nuts in nutritive value e.g. Pumpkin seeds, Sunflower seeds, Sesameseeds (Til), Watermelon seeds, Muskmelon seeds etc.
Can Dry Fruits and Nuts/Seeds be eaten together ?
Dry Fruits (like fruits) are sweet foods – and the most ideal source of carbohydrates – loaded with the right sugars as energy for the body.
Fat foods, (as they contain oil).
When mixed and eaten together fermentation occurs. The sugars of the sweet fruits are “pre-digested” and require no breaking down, since they are in their simplest form. Digestiongets delayed when mixed with protein/fat, resulting in decay.
Nuts should never be eaten for breakfast. This is cleansing time for the body. Breakfast should be supported by only fruits.
Nuts and Seeds can be eaten with Greens or Vegetable salads (Non starchy foods).
Dry Fruits can be eaten as snacks and distinct Fruit meals—alone. Should not be mixed with anything.
