I was surprised to learn when eating fortified oatmeal , our bodies don't absorb all the IRON it has. So, in order to help our bodies retain the iron in oatmeal, we need to consume ORANGE JUICE along with the oatmeal . This information was found in the Martha Stewart Living ",May 2012 issue,p.140. Other "healthful pairings " of food ~peanut butter +banana{potassium/ less sodium},tomato+olive oil{lycopene/fat},whole grain cereal +milk {calcium/magnesium},chicken +carrots{zinc/VitaminA}.Morer>

More Information:

pairings are listed~dark-meat turkey &sweet potato;beans & cheddar cheese;whole-wheat bread & cheese;brown rice & kale;cooked tomatoes& salmon;soy sauce & tuna;Caesar dressing & romaine lettuce;broccoli & tofu;lemon & spinach.The researcher listed is @ NYU School of Medicine.
