Strawberry, Spinach, and Almond Salad

How to Pair Fruits & Vegetables

Fruits are carbohydrates that provide vitamin C, which helps you to absorb iron more efficiently for energy. Fruits have a different carbohydrate and sugar content than vegetables. They digest quicker, ferment in the stomach, and as a general rule, should not be combined with vegetables. The exception to this is spinach, chard, and collards which are the iron-rich green leafy vegetables that combine well with fruit. For instance, adding strawberries to a spinach smoothie or salad offers a vitamin C and iron combination resulting in an energy boost.
