Certain Food Pairings Leads to Better Health

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings

While everyone knows eating more fruits, vegetables and fish can boost health, a new article demonstrates how the right combination of foods is even better.

In "Natural Selections" in Men's Health's Best Life magazine, February 2009 issue, epidemiologist David Jacobs calls these combinations food synergy. He says evolution has tested food pairings and that's why they're healthier for us.

The right food combinations can help people lose weight, prevent cancer, and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, the article states. Here are the food combinations discussed in the article:

  • Tomatoes and avocadoes
  • Oatmeal and orange juice
  • Broccoli and tomatoes
  • Blueberries and grapes
  • Apples and chocolate
  • Lemon and kale
  • Soy and salmon
  • Peanuts and whole wheat
  • Red meat and rosemary
  • Turmeric and black pepper
  • Garlic and fish
  • Eggs and cantaloupe
  • Almonds and yogurt
