Foods you should eat together--and why...

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Here are a few pairings from Amy Jamieson-Petonic, a registered dietician at the Cleveland Clinic, that can help take your healthy eating to the next level.

1. Spinach and lemon. Spinach, which contains a substantial amount of iron, is even better for you when you sprinkle it with lemon juice which will help your body absorb the iron more efficiently.

2. Tomatoes and olive oil. The fat-soluble antioxidants lycopene and carotenoids found in tomatoes pair perfectly with heart-healthy olive oil which helps control cholesterol, blood pressure, and the growth of cancer.

3. Fish and curry powder. When combined with curry, the heart-healthy omega-3s in fish as well as the fats DHA and EPA have been found to reduce cancer risk.

4. Mixed berries. Eating fresh blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries together can give you more nutritional bang for your buck.
