The supplemental additive.

“Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.” Genesis 3:18 KJV.

Vegetables were prescribed by our Creator God to be a healing supplement to the effects of sin in our physical frames. “In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations” Revelation 22:2.

Here’s a good way to remember: Fruits sustain, vegetables regain (it rhymed lol but the better word to use here would be “restore”). For this purpose, vegetables are so easy to eat, that there’s really only 3 general rules used to combine them.

Three Fundamental Vegetable Combining Rules and Exceptions

1. Combine no more than 3 vegetables in the same meal (one sitting).
EXCEPTION: These three are in addition to 1-2 Leafy Greens and 1-2 Fruit Vegetables in Group 1.

2. Do not combine fruits and vegetables in the same meal (one sitting).
EXCEPTION: Lettuce and celery are so neutral, they can be combined with any fruit meal; it will actually enhance the digestion and overall assimilation of the fruit. Try adding lettuce and celery to three other properly-combined fruits!
EXCEPTION: Tomatoes are an acid fruit, without the sugar content of other acid fruits. Best used with vegetable salad, any Green Leafy, or Non-starchy vegetables; but not at a starch meal. May be safely combined with nuts, seeds, sprouts, olives, avocados, and soybeans with experimentation.

3. Take special care when preparing Special Veggies (Group 3) for consumption; see list for details.
