"Although research shows improved absorption of nutrients when specific foods are parired, don't stress about picking the perfect combination at every meal. Ultimately, it's about consuming a colorful variety of nutrient-dense foods, such as fruits, vegetables, buts, seeds and legumes, over the course of the week."
