Eating the right combinations

Lemon juice is a good source of vitamin-c and should be taken with iron rich foods such as spinach, chia seeds, soyabeans, quinoa, lentils and oatmeal. Sulphur rich foods like garlic and onion should always be added while cooking chicken, mutton because sulphur helps in the absorption of zinc and iron present in these foods.
