Bananas: Pair with milkiStock/Evafotografie, iStock/benoitb
Got tummy problems? Get bananas. The yellow fruit is a good source of inulin, a type of fiber that helps balance “good” bacteria levels in your digestive system. Even more, it enhances calcium absorption, benefiting your bones. Pair your ‘nana with good sources of calcium, such as milk, yogurt, cheese, broccoli, and kale, to promote bone health. A good breakfast combo: Add sliced bananas to cereal with skim milk. (Nutritionists never eat these foods so you shouldn’t either.)

Vitamin E promotes healthy eyes and may help prevent macular degeneration (a cause of blindness). Vitamin C boosts the power of vitamin E, putting it into a form that helps your body use it best. Pair sources of vitamin C such as strawberries, citrus fruits, and tomatoes, with a good source of vitamin E, such as peanuts/peanut butter, almonds/almond butter, and sunflower seeds.
