Dr Oz did a segment called Dynamic Duos: Surprising Food Combinations to Fix Your Health. Doctor Oz spoke about foods that are powerful alone, but when you eat them together they are even more powerful – hence the name Dynamic Duos!
Dr Oz: What Food Combination Gives More Energy?
Dr Oz asked which two of the following foods gives you the most energy: chickpeas, peppers or eggplant? Dr Oz said that red pepper and chickpeas give you the most energy when you eat them together. Chickpeas are rich in iron which is great for your immune system, but your body can’t absorb the iron fully without the vitamin C found in red peppers.
Dr Oz: What Food Combination Improves Your Mood?
Dr Oz asked which two of the following foods improves your mood: eggs, tomatoes or broccoli? Dr Oz said that broccoli and eggs improve your mood. Broccoli is one of the most easily absorbed forms of calcium, and eggs have Vitamin D which help with Seasonal Depression.
Dr Oz: What Food Combination Trims Your Belly?
Dr Oz asked which two of the following foods improves your mood: pasta, balsamic vinegar or shrimp? Dr Oz said that the acidity of balsamic vinegar slows down your body’s absorption of sugar from the pasta. By adding 2 TB of balsamic vinegar to pasta, you slash your sugar absorption by 20%. I personally would prefer my balsamic vinegar on a side salad though, rather than placing the vinegar directly on the pasta. Do you have a good recipe for a pasta dish that uses balsamic vinegar? If so, please share it with everyone in the comment section below!
