Default Mixing Protein Sources

Hi, all. I'm an avid raw BARF style feeder for about 7 months now. My girl is doing great on it, 9 months old, no issues. I'm just curious if anyone has heard the reason behind why some people advise not to mix protein sources in a meal. Now that I think about it I've read several articles saying basically the same thing but have never heard an explanation that made sense.

I have ALWAYS mixed protein sources since she was a baby. I don't see it as necessary so much as it's just easier to ensure balance and variety over a week for me. I've always thought the opposite, that mixing proteins in one meal actually might make the utilization more effiicient of vitamins/minerals/amino acids than giving all chicken, or pork, or whatever in one meal.

Thanks in advance.
