HealthKick-Food Combinations to Avoid via:NTVCooks

I have never heard of "food combining" for ultimate weight loss. What are some of your personal food combinations? Share Below!

What to eat -

To get the most of what you eat, here are five complimentary food nutrient combinations that you should include in your diet.

1. Fat and Veggies:
Vegetables contain vitamins which require some fat to be better absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that eating fresh vegetables with little fat in the form of oils or cheese helps your body absorb valuable nutrients. Use extra virgin olive oil as a dressing or to saute veggies. (Recipe: Green Salad with Feta Cheese)

2. Broccoli and Tomatoes: Tomatoes contain antioxidants and broccoli contains phyto-chemicals; combine them and you have a cancer cell-fighting duo. These nutrients combine and provide protection against cancer.

3. Vitamin C and Iron:
Eating a big bowl of iron-rich spinach may not be as healthy. Bung in a handful of oranges or add some lime juice to enhance the nutritional perks. Vitamin C helps convert the iron to a ferrous state, which makes it easier for the body to absorb. You can also add strawberries to your cereal or some beetroots in your meals and shakes. (Recipe: Lemony Spinach Soup)
