How do you know your intestines are clean? Believe it or not, try this simple testing: Cut a dragon fruit (pitaya) in half and eat the flesh. You can see the black sesame-like pitaya seeds in your poo. The test is to check the pitaya takes how long to get into the bowel and then get out from the body. Half day is perfect. One day is normal. It can't be a good sign if your intestines take 3 days or more to get rid the pitaya seeds from the body. You shouldn’t overlook the long-term effects if your bowel keeps stuck up. Your body is screaming out to you through the signs of fatigue, rough skin, overweight, or bloating if you culminate the toxic from the poor eating. Eat fruits make you feel good about yourself. I like to eat fruits as snacks as it's easy, it's cheap and no need preparation time. Not everyone eats the fruits in a right way. How about you?
How to eat the fruits in a right way?
1. Eat Fresh
Fruits are meant to taste best at their ripening stage. It changes the flavor from sharp taste to become sweeter when it ripens. When we say eating the fresh fruits, we mean the ripened ones.
Avoid eating the contaminated fruits from the residue of pesticides. Pesticides are not merely "attached" to the fruit surface, it had absorbed into the core which is hard to remove by rinsing or soak in the water. Eat the organic fruits is pretty much a good choice.
3. Eating Order
Eat the fruits before the meal or half hour between meals. You are not suggested to eat the fruits immediately after the meal. Why? Your main dish usually has the meat which is the slower digest food. What would happen if the slower digest food gets in the way of the faster digest food? Such improper eating order would cause the fermentation which leads to bloating.
nice to eat the fruits but avoid the fatty fruit such as avocado
It is the best digestion time for your body. Eating full is ok.
Eat less at night.
4. Eating Seasonally
There’s nothing like fresh fruit at their seasonal best. Seasonal fruits taste better and carry better nutrient value as well. Will you eat watermelon in winter? Eating watermelon in winter make you feel cold and uncomfortable. Conversely, the juicy melon helps you stay hydrated and release the hot feeling during the summer time. It's easy to find which are the seasonal fruits. Pick the fruits that are widely available in the food stores and have a better deal are seasonal.
5. Local Fruits
Would you prefer exotic fruits or local fruits? Local fruits are more appealing to me. I would like to pick the fruits that are growing in the farmland nearest to my living place. Beware of the exotic fruits that look so beautiful but carried the residue of the pesticides on the imported lemons, bananas, cherries, kiwi, peaches, and apples. OK, ok, local fruits has pesticides also.
6. Match With Your Body Nature
According to the Chinese medical science, the foundation of everything in the universe including our body nature can categorize into five types (wood, gold, water, earth, and fire). Eating the appropriate food to cope with your type of body nature can optimize the benefit to your health. How do you know your body nature belong to which type? Let's explain in another separate post.
7. Original shape
Eat the fruit in its original shape preserves its optimal energy and nutrients counts. Whenever we try to blending, boiling, or drying the fruits would discount its nutrient value.
8. Food combining
9. Positive energy
I love to eat the fruits carry with positive energy. Positive energy fruits are grown by happy farmers, pleasant workers, organic farmland, or fair trade business and so on.
10. Don’t eat too much
Avoid eating too much. Just enough is fine. Too much is no difference with too little.
