1. Tender coconut water (Ellaneer). This constitutes a full meal in itself, for it supplies all the essential nutrients required by our body. Therefore, taking Ellaneer is an easy way to fast, for those who are scared of fasting on water.
2. Juicy fruits.
3. Pulpy fruits.
4. Leafy vegetables.
5. Creeper vegetables (like bottle gourd, ash gourd).
6. Vegetables grown above ground.
7. Vegetables grown below ground.
8. Cereals and pulses without removing their bran or outer covering (e.g., unpolished rice).

10. Milk. This is very good for growing children, but adults need it only when they do lots of physical exercise and their protein cells need replenishment. It is better for adults doing sedentary work to take curds, which is milk that has already gone through a portion of the digestive process that takes place within the body. Better still is buttermilk, which is very easily digested.

12. Cereals and pulses in polished form.
13. Oils. Better had in the form of nuts instead of their oil. Or, if oil has to be taken, it is advisable to add the oil or ghee on the food after it has been cooked, rather than cook the food in them. If oil does have to be used, it is always better to opt for the unrefined variety when the ill-effects of processing are avoided.
14. Refined oil.
15. White sugar.
16. Meat. fish, and eggs. These are really the most difficult to digest.
