Studies show that the right food combinations can help lower weight and reduce  the risk of heart disease and cancer.

It’s called food synergy according to a study done at the University of Minnesota

  • Tomatoes and avocados – tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene.  Fats from an avocado make this cancer fighting antioxidant more available.
  • Blueberries and grapes – eating together provides more antioxidant effects
  • Natural Peanut butter and whole wheat – amino acids absent in wheat are present in peanuts giving you a complete protein –
  • Real Oatmeal and orange juice reduces the risk of heart attacks by 50%  rather than either one alone. These two ingredients stabilize your bad cholesterol
  • Almonds and yogourt –  vitamins are best absorbed when eaten with fat –  the vitamin D in yogourt is more activated when eaten with the healthy fat from the almonds.
