Certain foods just taste better together if you ask me.
The synergistic relationship takes your taste buds on overdrive and you can’t imagine eating them any other way unless they are paired.
Unfortunately, no matter how awesome fish and chips or spaghetti and meatballs taste together, did you know that they are actually a poor combination?
What happens when you eat these combos is that neither the protein nor the starch gets properly digested which may lead to fermentation and other digestive problems such as heartburn, bloating and gas.
If that sounds too familiar and common, this may be the reason why.
To kick start healing and giving your body the nutrients it needs, here are some of the healthiest food pairings you need to be eating:
Turmeric and black pepper
Considering all the benefits turmeric comes packed with it is crucial to reap every benefit from this wonderful anti-cancer spice. However, it is very difficult for the body to absorb it. But when you pair it with black pepper your body is able to reap all the benefits.
The piperine which is found in black pepper helps your body absorb curcumin which is the active ingredient in turmeric.
Therefore, every time you cook a meal with this yellow orange rhizome always throw in some black pepper.
Rice and beans
To get a high protein kick in your diet if you don’t want to eat eggs, a combo of rice and beans will do the job just right.

Not only do they taste good together but the ammino acids found in the rice complements those found in beans. This classic comfort food is also rich in fiber and other nutrients that will fill you up until your next meal.
Avocado and tomatoes
The healthy fats in avocados can maximize the absorption of lycopene a carotenoid found in tomatoes which happens to be a disease fighting plant pigment that helps your body to fight off chances of developing cancer or heart disease from the brightly colored salsa.
This tasty combo when drizzled with some dressing has also been found to help improve vision due to the absorption of another carotenoid called lutein which is found in green leafy vegetables.
Rosemary and red meat
To continue enjoying your meat without the risk of contracting cancer from the charred flesh it is best to soak up the meat with lots of rosemary.
According to studies, the herb soaks up the dangerous free radicals grilling meat over an open flame produces.
It turns out that the rosmarinic and carnosic acid found in rosemary mixes well with different kinds of grilled foods that help prevent the formation of heterocyclic amines, the carcinogenic and mutagenic chemicals formed from cooking muscle meats such as beef, pork, fowl and fish at high temperatures.
Green tea and lemon
When you squeeze some fresh lemon juice to a cup of green tea, the citrus juice helps your body absorb the tea’s antioxidants almost five times. Green tea boasts of catechins a class of flavonoids that help fight disease and boost metabolism.
After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.
Love At First Sight?
Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.
While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.
”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”
In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;
”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”
Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.
When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.
Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:
Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?
Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.
When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.
It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.
Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.
A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.
There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.
Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.
Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.
Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.
They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.
Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.
The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.
They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes. “We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said. Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage. ‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
