    FOOD COMBINATIONS Nutrition gives us Nourishment. While Nutrition has always been a term used in the context of food, the body is actually nourished in many ways and ‘food’ is just one of them. Every healthy food, by itself, has nutrition to offer, nevertheless, there is a very effective yet overlooked way to maximize nutrient absorption and reap its benefit and that is by making simple food combinations. So let’s understand how to get the best nourishment from foods. Topping the list of food combinations is a Cereal - Pulse combination  This combination is the best way to get good quality protein, especially for Vegetarians. Cereals generally lack in an amino acid called lysine but are high in tryptophan, methionine and cystine. Legumes/Pulses lack in amino acids like tryptophan, methionine and cystine but rich in lysine. When we combine these two food groups we get all essential amino acid and improve the quality of proteins. This combination will almost make it a COMPLETE PROTEIN.  For example Rice + Black gram = Idly / Dosa / Uttapam  Wheat + Toor Dal = Puran Poli / Dal-dhokli  Rice + Green-gram Dal = Khichdi / Pongal  Wheat + Chick-pea = Chappati with Chole  Rice + Toor Dal = Sambar-rice / Dal-rice Note - Every Cereal - Legume/Pulse combination is best achieved in recommended proportions.
