The proper food combinations present powerful protection against many diseases and also improves your looks and figure. So, begin preparing your meals smartly and not hastily.
The proper combination of healthy food bring even greater benefits for your health.
Here is which food combinations should be present in your diet:
Green tea + lemon = healthier heart and smaller risk of cancer
The green tea and lemon are two super groceries which are to be present daily in our diet. The good news is that when consumed together, their power is increased. It is proven that the lemon juice increases the catherines (kind of flavonoid) which are present in the green tea and reduce the risk of heart diseases and cancer. Many people squeeze lemon in the green tea to improve its taste not knowing that by that act they are making one more good thing – they increase the absorption of the beneficial antioxidants.
Green tea + black pepper = slimmer waist
Researches show that the black pepper increases the absorption of Epigallocatechingallate (EGCG) up to 130%. EGCG is substance in the green tea which speeds up the consumption of the calories.
Add up half tea spoon of black pepper in the green tea. It might not be especially tasty, but you must admit that this combination is better option than holding strict diets.
Omelette + red paprika = smoother skin
The red paprika is excellent source of vitamin C and the researches show that women who consume more vitamin C have less wrinkles and rarely suffer from dry skin.
Just add up one sliced paprika into your eggs in the morning and your skin will be grateful to you.
Tomatoes + broccoli = strong cancer protection
Tomatoes and broccoli contain anticancer substances, but when taken together they offer even stronger protection from cancer.
The researchers discovered that this combination slows down the tumors of the prostate, but they still don`t know why. “We know that tomato powder slows down the growth of tumors. We know that also the broccoli does the same. But, it will take years to find out why” – says John Eardman, professor at the University of Illinois, who runs many researches on the cancer.
Tomatoes + olive oil = solid young skin and stronger immunity
The combination of tomatoes and olive oil is popular because it is very tasty and also very healthy. The consumption of tomatoes and olive oil improves the skin structure, solidifies and maintains its young looks.
Additionally, the researchers claim that the olive oil helps the absorption of licopene, powerful antioxidant which is abundantly present in cooked tomatoes.
Cereals + sunflower seed = better immunity
Sunflower seeds contain alpha-tocopherol (active form of vitamin E) which as antioxidant protects the cells from the free radicals. In other words, the vitamin E helps in protection from cancer and heart diseases.
It is enough just to put half a cup sunflower seed in your meal with cereals in order to intake the recommended daily dose of alpha-tocopherol.
Oat meal + strawberries = healthier heart
The oat contains two very important phytochemicals which in combination with the vitamin C from the strawberries decrease the harmful effect of the “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. Because of that, the risk of heart diseases and heart attack is decreased.
Have oatmeal for breakfast and in it put some fresh strawberries. If you don`t have strawberries put some other fruit rich with C vitamin (for example, blueberry).
Apple + cranberry = complete protection
The apple and cranberry are rich with antioxidants. But when you put them together, you got much more antioxidants then consumed apart.
Along with the apple take at least a fist of dry cranberry so that your body would use their maximal effect.
