Monday “Did you know…” Make it a combo
It’s not what you take in, but what your body can extract from what you take in. Food combinations or food synergy is important to consider.
“According to dietitian Joanne Larsen, dark green, leafy vegetables like spinach and kale are best eaten in combination with another veggie high in Vitamin C like beets, because “iron absorption in your intestines is improved by Vitamin C.”” Read more at this very good review here.
We also posted this 4/1/09…no foolin’.
BTW, I have no idea if spinach & white beans creates a proper synergy, it was just my breakfast.
BTW2: Thank you to everyone who forwards interesting & relevant topics/websites for our various posting days (Did you know, Attitude, Form, etc). It makes it a much easier task to keep the blog fresh. Thanks.
