Got A Tip?


Try these perfect food pairings


When prepping for the holidays (or any meal, really) keep your health goals in mind and know that pairing certain foods will help you get the best nutrition possible.

Iron and Vitamin C: When paired together, these two promote healthy organ and immune system function. Try iron-boasting spinach and edamame, paired with vitamin C-filled oranges, grapefruit, strawberries and tomatoes, like a spinach salad topped with mandarin oranges.

*Fat and Carotenoids: The antioxidant benefits of carotenoids mixed with a little fat has huge cancer risk-reducing abilities. Mix tomatoes, yellow peppers, carrots and greens with a bit of olive oil, and you’re good to go!

*Red Wine and Vitamin E: The resveratrol found in vitamin E and red wine will promote a healthy heart and also aid in fighting cancer because of the increased antioxidant content. Red wine with a side of almonds is a good match, and so is sangria with mango and kiwi.

*Green Tea and Vitamin C: The vitamin C will help green tea's antioxidants be better absorbed and stick around even after digestion, promoting cancer, heart attack and stroke prevention. Try serving tea rather than coffee after dinner.

Celestial Seasonings has a tasty antioxidants green tea and citrus-flavored ones I think as well.

Wow--thanks for this tip! I love spinach salads topped with fruit, but I didn't know about the other pairings.
