Go Easy on the Pork This Holiday
While many health conscious families do indeed limit their intake of red meat and pork, usually this is because of the consistent decline in the quality of meat produced in today’s world. Many of the meats found on supermarket shelves today, minus organic and grass fed kinds, have a plethora of harmful toxins present. Much of this is due to the excessive use of antibiotics, hormones and fertilizers in today’s farming industry. But there is another problem with pork that many of us don’t know about.
But wait, there is also another problem with pork that many of us do not know about. Because pork is so hard to digest it can interfere with other foods that have been eaten within the same reasonable time frame. For example, if you ate a bowl of grapes and then some pork, your body is in for a rough ride. As your body tries so hard to digest the pork you ate, the grapes now sit idle in your stomach, sometimes for many many hours. We all know what happens when you bite into an apple and then let it sit for a few minutes. Of course, it starts to “brown” and ferment. Well, the grapes in your stomach, or any fruit for that matter have now begun the fermenting process. This can cause some very uncomfortable conditions such as an upset stomach and acid indigestion. Choosing your meat wisely in the world we live in today and making wise choices when it comes to meats can help your body in many ways. Have a great holiday all!!!
