You are supposed to eat fruit on an empty stomach, because the part of the digestive system which deals with it is right at the bottom of your gut. If you eat fruit after something else it gets blocked and does not go through quick enough, and therefore ferments inside you. Yuk, sounds horrible, bubbling away. Apparently, in a book I have been reading about food combining, you shouldn't have fruit as a pudding. Also you shouldn't mix carbohydrates with protiens, because they are digested in different parts as they work their way through. Don't know what you do about cheese on toast though, eat it in two seperate stages, pick the cheese off first ;o)
I'm making some celery soup which I will have in about an hour, that will give the fruit time to go through. Lovely smells wafting through from the kitchen.
Almost finished the bag, hope you like red, Jane.
PS. bag finished, it's fabulous :o)))
