Anti-Inflammatory Foods

July 13, 2022

One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation comes from the grocery store.

Foods that CAUSE inflammation:
  1. Added sugars
  2. Trans Fats
  3. Red and processed meats
  4. Refined carbohydrates (highly processed white flour bread and rolls, crackers, sugary cereals, white rice)
  5. Omega-6s (canola, corn, safflower, sunflower and peanut oils, mayonnaise)
Foods that FIGHT inflammation:
  1. Fresh fruits
  2. Leafy greens
  3. Extra-virgin olive oil
  4. Garlic
  5. Turmeric
  6. Walnuts
  7. Avocados
  8. Cinnamon


One of my favorite recipes to help boost your immune system and fight inflammation:

Ginger Chicken Soup with Turmeric

This recipe gets its beautiful yellow color from turmeric, while being packed full of other anti-inflammatory foods such as kale, lemon juice, sweet potatoes, garlic, celery, olive oil and other herbs and spices!  Check out the full recipe here:
