Are there any fruits or veggies that just do not taste good together?

    Food Combining is a theory that says fruits and veggies, and specific ones, should not be mixed. The proponents will say that mixing fruits and veggies will cause your stomach contents to "ferment into funky goo". I'm not sure what funky goo is, but I've been mixing fruits and veggies for longer than most people here have even been alive, and I assure you my stomach has not turned into funky goo. While it is true that different foods are digested differently, there is zero evidence to support this concept.

    You may find through experience that certain mixtures don't agree with you, but this is different for everyone, and only experience will teach you what not to mix. I personally mix anything and everything.

    Thanks, Zootal. I am not concerned with the fruit/veggie debate I was only looking for those things that you have found simply to not make a favorable combination. Just as in cooking there are certain things you just don't combine as it, just like white wine and meat don't go together. I'm doing a lot of experimenting with my drinks right now and just thought that there were some things that are probably not agreeable to juice together and was looking for any that someone may have discovered are simply no-no's. Thanks for responding!

    I did carrot, ginger, apple, cucumber, kiwi, and spinach together today and it was good.

    I don't think there are many things that don't taste good together. Apple with garlic, ginger, and a very small hot pepper is suprisingly good. I make kimchi apple, and so long as you get the garlic/ginger/pepper ratios right, it works very good.

    I make a tomato juice with onion and garlic. In retrospect, onion probablly does not go well with most juices. Same for radish and turnip.

    I think in the end this is a matter of personal taste, and you are going to have to discover for yourself what you like and what you don't like.

    PS Sorry about going on and on about food combining. There is a lot of psuedo science out there, stuff that sounds good and makes sense but does not have an ounce of fact or science to support it. That is the type of question that gets asked a lot - my blood type is xyz, or I was born under a full moon, so should I avoid certain foods, weird stuff like that....

    Remember biorhythms? I remember listening and watching people plotting their biorhythm for the day, and it's amazing how many people believed in them. You don't hear much about this today because there was over 100 studies done and all of them showed that the biorhythm theory was totally false. There is nothing in nature that has such a precise cycle that does not have a seasonal cause.

    I enjoy hearing your in depth take on the subject as well as other soapbox discussions! You always have such interesting "reads". I do believe that there could a a blood type correlation with what you should be eating as well as DNA. When you think about it our DNA shows so much regional history of our bodies and what was available to our ancestors for consumption. I don't have scientific reasoning to back it up just gut feeling (pun intended!)
