Foods that Are Even Better Together

The following foods are superfoods in their own right, but when you eat them together they provide an even more powerful punch:

Tomatoes and broccoli. Both of these vegetables are loaded with cancer-protective plant chemicals and when eaten together their anti-cancer power is compounded.

Salsa and Avocado. Salsa is filled with the potent antioxidant lycopene, and the health fats in avocados can boost the absorption of lycopene by 200-400 percent.

Red bell peppers and leafy greens. The big hit of vitamin C in red bell peppers aids in the absorption of dark leafy green’s iron.

Turmeric and ground pepper. Turmeric is abundant in curcumin, one of the most potent naturally-occurring anti-inflammatory agents known, and pepper enhances its bio-availability up to 1,000-fold.

Citrus fruits and tea. The vitamin C in fresh citrus boosts the absorption of tea’s powerful polyphenol antioxidants.

Olive oil and leafy greens.
The “healthy fats” in olive oil dramatically enhance the up-take of lettuce green’s and vegetable’s carotenoids from the intestinal tract into the blood stream.

Salmon and yogurt. The rich supply of vitamin D in salmon augments the gastrointestinal (GI) absorption of plain yogurt’s calcium.

Greek yogurt and blueberries. The good bacteria (probiotics) in Greek yogurt break down the fiber in blueberries producing compounds that improve intestinal health.
