Eating Apple with Egg: Is it SAFE or Not?

Short Answer: It is generally safe to eat apple and egg together or one after another. Because there is no scientific proof that they are harmful or beneficial for health.

Apple and egg both are healthy foods.

Apple contains vitamin C, antioxidants, carbohydrates, and fiber. Egg has protein, fat, iron, and choline.

According to Ayurveda, apple and egg are incompatible foods that should not be eaten together or one after another.

Ayurveda believes that each food has a distinct combination of tastes and energies that affect the digestion and the body.

Combining foods with radically different energetics can overwhelm the digestive fire and cause indigestion, fermentation, gas, bloating, and the creation of toxins.

But according to science, there is no evidence that eating apple and egg together or one after another is harmful or beneficial for health.

Science does not support the concept of food combining based on tastes and energies.

Instead, science suggests that a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from different food groups is important for optimal nutrition and health.

As a nutritionist, my advice is to try first.

If after eating apple and egg together or one after another you experience any side effects, such as stomach ache, nausea, or diarrhea, then stop combining them. And if you can tolerate them, then continue.

However, you should be mindful of the quality and quantity of apple and egg you consume. Because eating too much of any food can cause excess calories, weight gain, and nutrient imbalance.

Whether you eat them together or not, you should always choose fresh and organic apple and egg. Because fresh and organic foods have more nutrients and less pesticides than processed and conventional foods.

You can store apple and egg in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks and 5 days respectively. Do not store them at room temperature or in direct sunlight, as they may spoil faster.

Finally, remember, apple and egg are nutritious foods that can be part of a healthy diet.

But moderation and variety are the keys to good health.
