Nutritious Combinations to Boost Absorption
When it comes to getting the most out of your diet, it’s important to pay attention to what you’re eating together. Certain combinations can help improve nutrient absorption and make the most of the vitamins and minerals in your food. Here are some examples of nutritious combinations that you should consider:
1. Carrots with nuts: If you’re just snacking on carrots in the middle of the day, maybe because they’re good for the eyes, remember that vitamin A is absorbed in the presence of fat. So, include nuts or good quality oil in every meal containing orange vegetables to increase absorption.
2. Tomato sauce with olive oil: Tomatoes contain a huge amount of lycopene, an antioxidant that is important against various diseases such as cancer (especially prostate cancer) and cataracts. Lycopene is more available to the body from cooked tomatoes than from fresh ones, but what increases its absorption? Fat! Add fresh and high-quality olive oil to your pasta sauce for maximum absorption and flavor.
3. Yellow cheese toast with red pepper: Red pepper has the highest amount of vitamin C, which is important not only for the immune system but also for calcium absorption from food. Since yellow cheeses have a lot of calcium, add a few strips of red pepper to your toast or next to it for increased calcium absorption into your body.
4. Vegetable omelet with spinach: Both vegetables and spinach play an important role in our health as they contain an antioxidant called lutein, which is important for eye health and preventing various eye diseases. The fat in the yolk is necessary for lutein absorption. Don’t forget to add green leaves like kale or broccoli as well as dietary fiber to make this omelette satisfying and filling.
