Reduce Your Inflammation

Diet is the foundation to reducing inflammation in our body.  We know the things that are unhealthy and contribute to further our bodies aggravation.  Its a choice that we make.  Its just as easy to choose good as it is bad.  And yes, I agree the bad foods can taste oh so good.  Yet eating towards a healthy, anti-inflammatory lifestyle can prolong our life as well as live a life that is enjoyable and without disease.  Most inflammatory diseases build up over time and sometimes without symptoms, or we simply ignore the symptoms.  So before we find out that its too late and we have certain diseases, make better choices.  Its pretty simple, we need to eat less inflammatory foods for less inflammation.  Some of the anti-inflammatory foods are:
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Red and Sweet Potatoes
  • Fresh Fish
  • Grass-Fed Meat, Chicken and Eggs
  • Nuts such as Almonds, Walnuts, Cashews, Pistachios, and Macadamia Nuts
  • Spices such as Ginger, Garlic, Dill, Oregano, Red Chili Pepper, Basil and Rosemary
  • Organic Butter, Coconut Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Water, Green Tea
  • Red Wine and Stout Beer
Sometimes when faced with an 'overhaul' of the thought of a complete diet change can be overwhelming, so try a simple change.  If you're not ready to fully commit, try simple changes.  Change one or two food items a week such as instead of the Snickers bar, have a handful of walnuts or even a piece of dark chocolate for your 'fix.'  Then again do something different the next week and so on.  Then before you know it you have made the changes that you wanted.  Good luck!
