7 Healthy Food Pairings That Enhance Your Dieting Efforts ...


My favorite healthy food pairings are options that don’t require too much stress, or time to prepare, but still satisfy my taste buds and hunger levels. Pairing certain foods together can make them much more effective than eating them alone. The combination of nutrients from certain foods helps to enhance their effects, as well as hold us over longer. The more the merrier, I say, when it comes to eating healthy foods! Pair these together and take your healthy lifestyle to a whole new level!

1. Almonds and Carrots

Almonds and Carrots

One of my all time favorite healthy food pairings is almonds and baby carrots. I adore this snack! In a pinch, it could even make a good breakfast on the go. Almonds are a great source of plant protein, with 7 grams per half cup. Their fats are also wonderful for your metabolism, and help lower the glycemic index. This is important for your snacks, as well as meals early on in the day. Keeping your blood sugar stable as much as possible will do wonders for your health and your weight. Carrots are a great source of healthy carbohydrates, with little sugar and no fat. With only 25 calories per half cup, and 4 grams of fiber, they make an excellent carb to consume with almonds to satisfy your sweet tooth. Both almonds and carrots are crunchy, satisfying, and also lower your stress levels due to high magnesium content, B vitamins, potassium, and fiber.
