(NaturalNews) What if eating the right combinations of foods had the ability to impact the body for the good? Some things just go together well, but inside the body they can pack a powerful punch when paired with the right component. So many people want to go on restrictive diets that are actually not healthy. Having a varied diet that incorporates a wide variety of nutrients is not only healthy but can help lose weight faster. To super boost a healthy eating lifestyle, try pairing some of the following blends.

1. Tomatoes and avocado

This dynamic duo is known to reduce inflammation. Tomatoes are commonly used in Mexican foods, and adding a little avocado may take it to a whole new level. Avocado has a healthy fat and it can absorb lycopene in the body. A study from the Ohio State University showed that people who added avocado to their salsa mix were absorbing more than 4x more lycopene. Eating foods rich in lycopene plays a role in cancer prevention. It can also help with inflammatory disease and can prevent cataracts.

2. Green tea and lemon juice

This pair allows the body to have greater antioxidant absorption. Any tea with lemon tastes good, but adding lemon juice to a drink has a great deal of health benefits. The citrus juice when added to green tea helps the body to have an increased ability to absorb antioxidants. The more lemon juice the better.

3. Pasta and vinegar

Pasta is great but adding a bit of vinegar to it will help a person feel full longer and fight fat. Many people eat a big plate of pasta but are hungry soon after. Because of its sugar content, pasta causes one's sugar levels to spike. However, the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that vinegar can reduce these glucose spikes. Cold pasta salads with vinegar dressing work well.

4. Skim milk and banana

Want stronger bones, have some skimmed milk and bananas. Dairy products are full of calcium. Bananas help with calcium absorption and can create strong and healthy bones. Try a smoothie with bananas and milk and add some oatmeal for bulk. Bones become brittle as person begins to age, but the potassium and calcium in this mixture is great for bone health.

5. Fish and red wine

Fish and red wine are both known to enhance heart health, but putting them together is an ultra-mix for the body. A nice piece of salmon with a glass of red wine may be heart healthy and provide great antioxidants for the whole body. An omega-3-rich fatty fish, like salmon and trout, just increases these body benefits further. But bear in mind they are not calorie free. Try to stick to a glass of wine that is about 4 ounces coupled with 4 ounces of fish, and add garlic to the mix for an extra immune system boost. Talk about a delicious treat that is also healthy, fish with garlic and red wine is a truly heart healthy dinner.
