Hey lovers! Just as your sweetheart brings out the best in you, certain foods are healthier when paired with the right partner.
Meet my favorite Food “Power Couples”:
Tea + Lemon
Why we’re a power couple: Citrus makes healthy tea antioxidants, called catechins, more absorbable.
Pasta + Balsamic Vinegar
Why we’re a power couple: Vinegar slows carb digestion to lower post-meal blood sugar & increase fullness.
Yogurt + Almonds
Why we’re a power couple: Almonds are a prebiotic that strengthen the good probiotic bugs in yogurt.
Spinach + Strawberries
Why we’re a power couple: Vitamin C in berries helps the body absorb iron in spinach.
Tomatoes + Olive Oil
Why we’re a power couple: Olive oil increases the absorption of heart-smart lycopene in tomatoes.
Rosemary + Grilled Meat
Why we’re a power couple: Rosemary’s natural antioxidant content decreases carcinogens from forming during cooking.
Eggs + Salad
Why we’re a power couple: Eggs increase the absorption of cancer-fighting carotenoids in raw vegetables. #putaneggonit
