THESE UNUSUAL FOOD COMBINATIONS MIGHT SOUND LIKE
THEY'VE COME STRAIGHT FROM THE WORLD OF WILLY
WONKA, BUT DON'T KNOCK THEM UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED THEM
ine and cheese, strawberries and
cream, tea and biscuits - some
food and drinks, it seems, were just
made for one another. But, why
stop there? There are many other
combinations which, although they may not spring
to mind with quite the same ease, can also make
your taste buds explode - in a good way. And there
are very sound reasons why bacon and banana is
just as satisfying a combination as bacon and eggs.
Check out these combinations for some more
adventurous snacks this summer...
Although the humble strawberry packs a punch all of its own, try teaming it
with balsamic vinegar. Don't be concerned that the addition of the vinegar will
overpower the taste of the fruit, it won't. The syrupy taste of the balsamic and
strong tang will make each bite of the strawberry taste even sweeter and, in fact,
provide a perfect replacement for the need to add any sugar.
TRY THIS Slice your strawberries up and add 1tbsp
of balsamic vinegar to them. Then combine some Greek
yogurt and honey, and scoop over the strawberries
with a garnish of mint. Delicious!

GO WELL WITH BASIL,
WHICH HAS AN IDEAL
AND IS INCREDIBLY
This duo of foods not only increases your antioxidant
intake, it also tastes divine. Eating a boiled egg with your
sa ad rovides different textures and boosts the flavour o raw
veg such as carrot, peppers and celery. While chunky veg salsa
(think onion and tomato with a sprinkling of coriander) on
top of scrambled eggs are tangy and creamy.
TRY THIS Ditch your ordinary eggs and toast for breakfast and
serve u a resh sa ad with a oached or so boi ed egg. nstead
of toast soldiers, chop up a few raw carrot batons.
