How To Combine Your Food


This is a good write up on pairing foods together for better nutritional absorption. In short, some micronutrients won’t absorb unless their partner micronutrients are present. For example scientists have found that we absorb little to no calcium from milk. Goes against everything you were taught about milk, right? Turns out we need magnesium present in the body to absorb calcium, which milk doesn’t have. The research is still evolving around pairing foods together but this list is a good start. Last night I made a salad containing avocado, tomato, basil, onion, and balsamic vinegar. Easy, tasty, and healthy.

Tomatoes & Avocados

Oatmeal & Orange Juice

Broccoli & Tomatoes

Blueberries & Grapes

Apples & Chocolate

Lemon & Kale

Peanuts & Whole Wheat

Red Meat & Rosemary

Turmeric & Black Pepper

Garlic & Fish

Eggs & Cantaloupe

Almonds & Yogurt

Try some of these combinations for better nutrient absorption! Heres the full article from Mens Health.
