Good food partner, healthy body eat out
01 Chocolate apples. Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidant flavonols, and apples also contain a lot of anti-inflammatory antioxidant quercetin, which can promote blood circulation and reduce the risk of heart disease. Slice the apple and dip it in melted dark chocolate. It's delicious and nutritious.
02 Oat kiwifruit. Iron plays an important role in preventing fatigue and enhancing immunity. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency and the leading cause of anemia. Research shows that heme iron from meat is easily absorbed by human body. However, non-heme iron from cereals and vegetables is harder to be absorbed and utilized by human body. Vitamin C helps the body absorb non-heme iron better. Adding vitamin C-rich blueberries or kiwifruit to oatmeal or squeezing lemon juice into spinach can help iron supplementation more effectively.
03_Tomato olive oil. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which helps prevent heart disease, aging and some cancers. Lycopene is fat-soluble. Eating with olive oil or avocado can make the body absorb more lycopene. In addition, cooked tomatoes are more conducive to the absorption of lycopene. Therefore, fried tomatoes with refined olive oil have better anti-cancer effect.
04 Egg milk. A number of studies have shown that vitamin D can promote the absorption of calcium in the human body, thereby improving bone and heart health. Eggs (especially yolks) contain vitamin D, which is eaten with milk rich in calcium. They taste better and are more conducive to nutrient absorption. So, eggs and milk are the best nutritious breakfast.
05. Garlic fish. Fish contains a variety of trace elements which are beneficial to heart health and have the effect of reducing lipid and anti-inflammation. Garlic also has a lipid-lowering effect. Fish and garlic can reduce total cholesterol and bad cholesterol (LDL) levels. Therefore, garlic is healthier when cooking fish.
06 Curry pepper. Curry helps fight cancer, diabetes and other diseases. The study found that when paired with black pepper, the absorption efficiency of curcumin, an active substance in curry, increased by 1000 times. Piperine, the pungent substance in black pepper, plays a key role. Therefore, when two kinds of condiments are used simultaneously in cooking, the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effect is better.
