Products That Work Best Pairs

Note to vegetarians and all who wish to give up animal products: not always the presence of large amounts of nutrients in plant foods means that you will get them to the same extent as that of meat or other "animal" products. Sometimes, in order to become superedoy, they need help mate

We are accustomed to a certain combination of products that are classic for us. For example, boiled new potatoes with garlic and fresh dill or borscht with sour cream. They come in pairs because it is simply delicious, and also because we are used to it. They make the perfect flavor combination. But there are some products that do not just complement each other in taste and become superpoleznymi exclusively in the presence of his partner.

Some of these options will be familiar to you, but some might be surprised, but any of the combinations could usefully complement your diet.


Black beans + bell pepper

Black beans are a good source of iron. This iron from plant sources is called non-heme and absorbed by the body is not as good as iron that you would get from eating meat. Only about 2 to 20% of "vegetable" fall iron from the digestive tract into the blood compared to 15-35% "animal" iron. Dr. Cynthia Sass said that thanks to the assistance of vitamin C, which is rich with red bell pepper, the amount of digestible "vegetable" iron increased six-fold!

This combination I use in addition to tomatoes, garlic, corn and green when preparing something like chili.


Wholegrain + garlic + onion

As in the case of beans, iron and zinc, contained in the whole grain have a low bioavailability, i.e. they are metabolised (undergo chemical transformation) is faster than the body can reach them. The fact that the whole grain, in addition to the usual nutrients us (same zinc and iron), containing minerals with which they are associated, and this adversely affects their absorption by the body.

Studies have shown that foods high in sulfur, such as onions and garlic, whole grain helps to give more nutrients. For example, research conducted in 2010 and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, showed that the addition of onions or garlic in dishes containing whole grains (raw or cooked), increases the availability of iron and zinc to the human body.

Perhaps that is why dumplings with garlic bread or of dark flour with salt, onion or garlic vprikusku so delicious! Especially with the soup. ;)


Tomatoes + olive oil

The couple seemed purposely devised for Italian food! In the olive oil contains vegetable fat, good for the heart. It increases the level of "good" cholesterol and lowers levels of "bad", which is the cause of clogged arteries. And in combination with tomatoes this ability increases even more!

In the Free Radical Biology and Medicine was conducted 2,000 investigations in which people ate tomato dishes paired with olive and sunflower oil. Researchers have discovered that olive oil increases the antioxidant activity of lycopene in tomatoes while sunflower oil gave no such effect.

For this couple has a huge number of delicious recipes! Even just tomatoes, baked in olive oil with garlic and milled in tomato soup are almost culinary masterpiece.


Salmon + kale

In order to get the most out of calcium, it should be used together with vitamin D. Vitamin D This helps better absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract into the blood and normalizes blood calcium level. One of the options - eat foods rich in calcium, and vitamins and sunbathing. The other - to use products that contain both calcium and vitamin D. Salmon paired with greens or collard greens - just in case!


Broccoli + tomatoes

This couple shows excellent anti-cancer properties. In 2007, a study was conducted in which patients have developed cancer in rats different diets, which included either tomatoes or broccoli, or both at a time. After completion of the experiment was checked, which showed some of the diets was most effective. Diet, which contained a 10% and 10% of tomatoes broccoli, caused tumor shrinkage by 52%. Diet, which included only tomatoes, showing a decline of 34%, and only with broccoli diet - by 42%.

By the way, braised broccoli in olive oil with tomatoes - it's delicious! As adding broccoli and sun-dried tomatoes in a pesto.


Green tea + black pepper


A strange combination, but it works! In green tea contains powerful antioxidant, which is also known as EGCG. Better yet, he reveals its anti-cancer properties in tandem with piperine, a chemical substance found in black pepper.

Where can I use this combination? It turns out that green tea brewed with the addition of black pepper, garlic and ginger marinade is great!


Turmeric + black pepper

Piperine in black pepper works well paired not only with green tea. It is also nice to get along with turmeric as it combines powerful anitoksidant curcumin, which is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antibacterial agent with piperine. Curcumin itself too quickly absorbed by the body and does not have time to share their magical abilities to the full, and piperine enhances its bioavailability in 1000 again.


Brussels sprouts + olive oil

In this mini-cabbage contains large amounts of vitamin K, which regulates blood clotting in the body, and is also useful for bones. Vitamin K is a fat soluble, which means it is better absorbed in a pair with a meal that contains fat. And here comes to the aid of olive oil, which helps to assimilate vitamin K. The easiest option - baked or braised brussels sprouts with olive oil.


Collard greens + almonds


Another leaf vegetable with a high content of vitamin K - collard greens. Also vitamin K comprises vitamin E is an antioxidant, which enhances our immunity and protection against heart disease and cancer. This vitamin like vitamin K is lipid-soluble and should be paired. This can become a perfect pair almonds, which is the source of monounsaturated fats. From this couple get a very tasty salad!


Dark chocolate + apple


Connect dark chocolate and apple has a powerful potential that will improve the condition of your cardiovascular system. In the skin of red apple contains flavonoids quercetin, which has anti-inflammatory properties, and dark chocolate, thanks it contains cocoa is rich in catechins, antioxidants that help prevent arteriosclerosis. A couple of them cope well with the destruction of blood clots.

Slices of apples in black chocolate - delicious and healthy dessert!


Garlic + salmon


Garlic as an additive to salmon not only makes the fish more flavorful, but also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. In 1997, the experiment was conducted, during which tested the effects of this culinary couple on the condition of men with high cholesterol levels in the blood. In groups who consumed 900 mg of garlic and 12 g of fish oil, as there was a reduction of total cholesterol (12.2%) and "bad" cholesterol (9%). So, if you do not like to swallow fish oil capsules and you plan to get the most out of this advantageous combination in the preparation of oily sea fish, add a little garlic.
