Eating healthy foods doesn’t have to be as torturous as some people make it out to be; in fact, it can be quite simple and satisfactory.
Eating healthy foods is pretty simple when you limit what you purchase at the grocery store. If you don’t buy chips, you can’t eat chips. Eating mostly vegetables with the occasional meat in your diet has proven to be a very effective way of losing weight and staying healthy. The better things you put in your body, the better results you’ll see from your body. What if there were a way to maximize the nourishment you’re getting out of the whole plant foods you’re already eating by creating a few food synergies along the way? By this, we mean specific food combinations that make certain nutrients in your body more easily absorbed and used by your body. Here are two tasty food synergies to think about the next time you’re cooking your meal, and the recipes to get you started.
Fat + Vitamins A, D, E, & K
Some vitamins are water-soluble, while others are lipid, or fat, soluble. Vitamins A, D, E, & K are all absorbed and stored in the fat within your body. In order for these fatty vitamins to best be absorbed, they should be accompanied with some fatty foods.
- Kale salad with sweet potato + avocado sauce
- Roasted carrots, microgreens + avocado salad
Fermented Foods + B Vitamins & Minerals
Probiotic-rich, fermented foods aid the absorption of B vitamins and key minerals which help promote healthy digestion.
- Roasted chicken thighs + garlic yogurt sauce over a mixed green salad
