Neutral foods for a food combining diet include all vegetables, except for starchy ones like potatoes, yams, all the different varieties of squash and pumpkins.

Raw meats such as Vitello Tonnato, Carpaccio and other similar delicacies.
Cured and smoked sausages like Proscuitto and some Salamis’. Just be aware of the fat content.
Raw Fish such as Sushi. My favourite, smoked Trout, Mackerel, Salmon or Halibut. In fact any kind of smoked fish is classified as a very good “neutral foods for a food combining diet”.
Herbs and spices. These aren’t classified as foods but can be used to give yours meals a bit of interest. You should also know that most herbs and spices have their own inbuilt beneficial elements. Herbs like ginger, garlic, chives, parsley, turmeric, cayenne pepper, salt, help with digestion.
Drinks that are neutral include water, herb teas, and believe it or not some high proof spirits.
Remember the ideal of a food combining diet is to eat foods that will digest at roughly the same time and that require the same alkaline or acidic environment to digest them.
Below are a few cheats that you can use if you have one of those days….
