Contrary to what we think, making a salad is not as easy as that. And especially when we talk about health. Combining foods that have fast digestion and others that have slow digestion does not mix well with the gut. This would cause a fermentation of food in the stomach that can cause many disorders in the body.

Indeed a slow digestion will cause the fermentation of starches and sugars which may give way to bloating, stomach pains or gases.
