We all know that healthy whole foods contain some nutrients or vitamins. Sometimes both. Sometimes more, like flavonoids, phytoproteins, or chemical compounds that help digestion or decrease inflammation. But these don’t work exclusively.

Sometimes these processes work on their own: eat eggs for healthy fats, eat oranges for vitamin C, you know the benefits. But in a study from Purdue, people who ate a salad topped with three eggs absorbed 3-9 times more carotenoids – antioxidants that reduce the risk of many cancers.

Eggs & Salad – Eggs, or any fat source, and salad is a good mix for accelerating weight loss. “In general, eating vegetables with added fats helps improve the absorption of beta-carotene in the vegetables,” says Rosanne Rust, founder of Rust Nutrition Services.

Roasted Vegetables & Oil – Healthy oils like extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil on roasted vegetables helps your body absorb the most nutrients, like beta-carotene. These nutrients give your body energy using fats your body needs and uses.

Steak & Broccoli – Red meat has a healthy dose of iron and broccoli helps your body digest it. Iron-rich foods are absorbed into the blood more readily when a food that’s high in vitamin C is eaten at the same time,” explains Sarah Krieger, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Garlic, Onions & Wild Rice – Researchers with the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry added garlic and onion to whole grains and noted that the zinc and iron found in the grains became easier to absorb. This increased bioavailability is a great idea for dinner tonight.

Kale & Salmon – “We need vitamin D to better absorb calcium,” notes Rust. Cheese contains both, but calcium-rich greens like kale need help. Oily fish like salmon are rich in vitamin D, same with sardines or trout – and they all make great salads.
