    I heard somewhere that melons should be eaten only by themselves. Why?

    Is there some unholy reason why melons are so superior they must be eaten on their own?

    yeah, that. I read some raw food books before going primal and all of the food combing stuff sounded a little wacky to me. I am pretty sure they said to eat melon separately at least 30 minutes before any other foods.

    I ate half a watermelon Saturday night. Literally, half an entire watermelon. I ate a burger with it. I felt fine and I'm still standing

    Don't forget the Greek favorite: Watermelon with feta cheese. Sweet and juicy with a sour/tangy counterpoint.

    I make a watermelon salad with feta, sweet onion, fresh mint, and a basic vinegrette that is to die for! Only way I like watermelon.

    If I remember correctly, the logic is that melon does not actually need to be digested by the stomach, and passes directly into the intestines for nutrient absorption, and the faster that happens, the more nutrients you get because they are diminished by the stomach acids if they are sitting in there with other food. I tried to follow the food-comnbining rules for a while, but it was a real pain and didn't seem to reap any noticeable results.

    Ummm, must be that they're using a different definition of logic that I'm used to...
