Mix and Match Your Foods for Healthier Benefits

By Herblogazine @HerBlogazine

The benefits of eating healthy foods can be enhanced when combining together!

Some of the powerful pairs are:

Yoghurt + Granola

Most yoghurt  contains probiotics, while whole grains are prebiotics. The prebiotics are good food for probiotic bacteria to thrive, and eventually help improve your digestive system even better than consuming the yoghurt alone.

Green Tea + Lemon

A splash of Lemon that contains enough vitamin C helps keep the powerful antioxidants in green tea from being destroyed before you can use them because lemon will reduce the breakdown of catechins in the digestive system.

Brown Rice + Onion and Garlic

When cooking your next brown rice, do not forget to add some sauteed onion and garlic because their sulfur compounds may increase absorption of the zinc and iron in some grains. This will help the body to maintain a healthy metabolism and overall energy.

Salmon + Turmeric

How about adding some turmeric spice rub on your salmon fillets? This powerful combination of DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid from salmon, and curcumin–a potent antioxidant and key component of turmeric, can slow the growth of certain breast cancer cells even more than eating them separately.

Broccoli + Radishes

The enzyme myrosinase is destroyed when the broccoli is cooked. This myrosinase can help convert broccoli’s cancer-fighting compound sulforaphane into its active form. A suggestion is to add another myrosinase-containing food such as raw rashishes or mustard together with cooked broccoli to fortify this benefit.
