Nutrients That Work Better Together

Work these food pairings into your diet to help your body get what it needs.

Healthy foods benefit us when we eat them on their own, but some foods make an even bigger impact when eaten with certain other foods. Maximize your nutritional gains by indulging in these good-for-you pairings.


1/2 C almond butter
1/4 C raw unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 C raisins
1/4 C chopped almonds
2 Tblsp unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 Tsp cinnamon

Forget the excuses: 

  • too busy
  • you are not hungry when you get up, etc.

The best time to eat fresh foods is when it is in season.
The less time a food has to travel and or be picked to travel the more nutritious the food will be.
Example corn loses its sweetness as it spends time in transit and its sugars convert to starch.
Tomatoes get picked too early or are gassed with ethylene to help them withstand handling.

What we eat prior and post exercise can enhance the work we did during the workout.
The old idea of carb loading the night before the big race has definitely gone through some changes. 
Newer schools of thought are to eat big meals a couple days before a race and then taper to a normal meal the night before the race.
Always fuel properly in the morning before a race.
Fat loading with healthy fats in the 10 days prior to a race can help increase muscle fat burning capabilities on race day.
Switch from fat-loading to carb loading 3 days before your big race. Aim to get 70% of your total calories from carbs during this period.
