When it comes to certain foods, it seems like some things are just better together. For example, peanut butter and jelly or cheese and wine, but did you know that there are some health foods that have actually been scientifically proven to be more healthy for you?
We are always on the lookout for brand spankin’ new superfoods that will give your diet a nutritional superboost, but what if we told you that it was possible to turn “same ol” ingredients into something a little more wow-worthy?
Take a look at these food pairings that are better together – not only because they taste good but because they pack a serious nutritional punch.
1. Banana & Peanut Butter
If there was one pre-workout (and even post-workout) snack we would always chose to eat, this would be it. The banana provides a good dose of glucose (fruit sugar) that will give you energy while replenishing your muscles. The peanut butter – or alternate nut butter of choice – will keep you full and satisfied thanks to its healthy fat and protein content. Together they balance each other out ideally by giving you the energy you need without a major crash later on.
