By now, you’ve probably thought that a salad is simply a mixture of ingredients according to their flavor, however, there are many other factors you should take into consideration when choosing the ingredients for your lunch or dinner salad. And, you should know that combining tomatoes and cucumbers in a salad is not recommendable because these veggies don’t have the same digestion time. According to Ayurveda, when choosing ingredients for a salad, we should know the exact digestion time of the ingredients.

Mixing vegetables that require less time for digestion and vegetables that require more time for digestion isn’t good because the lighter ingredient will end up passing in the intestine just as the first one is completely digested. This will cause food fermentation in the stomach which may further poison the entire body. It will also slow down the digestion and the fermentation of sugars and starches and you won’t be able to enjoy your meal completely. To make matters worse, the fermentation process may cause gases, swelling, and stomach pain.

There are other food combinations, besides tomatoes and cucumbers, which you should definitely avoid. Let’s take a look:
