Fighting Inflammation With Food:

Fruits & Vegetables:
Spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, carrots, beets, peas and squash and fruits like raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, pink grapefruit and blackberries – are all rich in flavonoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties

Whole Grains:
Grains like brown rice, buckwheat and quinoa digest slowly, reducing frequency of spices in blood sugar that promote inflammation

Lean Protein:
Fish and seafood are rich in omega 3 fats that act to lower levels of cholesterol.

Healthy Herbs & Spices:
Herbs and spices like turmeric, garlic, ginger and cinnamon enhance flavor and are powerful, natural anti-inflammatory agents
