Inflammation

Most modern diseases have a common root: Chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation encourages vulnerability to allergies, auto-immune disease, and long-term risk of age-related disease. Certain foods can decrease inflammation and protect tissues from inflammatory damage. Some examples include foods with a low glycemic index, that are high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.

An anti-inflammatory diet moves away from overly processed foods, and high acidity foods, such as dairy and meats. An increase in fresh fruits and vegetables, little to no red meat, certainly no chemicals or meat additives, and an abundance of omega-3 rich foods.

  • Antioxidant foods
  • Minerals
  • Essential fatty acids

  • Legumes: beans (anasazi, adzuki), peas (black, chickpeas, black-eyed peas), lentils
  • Nuts and seeds (almonds, walnuts, hemp, flax, chia)
  • These fish are rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.

Diet + Foods

Grains

  • Barley
  • Basmati Rice
  • Brown Rice
  • Buckwheat
  • Groats
  • Quinoa
  • Steel-cut Oats
  • Wild Rice

3-5 servings per day. Compared to highly processed grains, whole and cracked grains digest slowly, preventing blood sugar spikes, which contribute to inflammation.

Unlimited amounts. These mushrooms contain immune-enhancing compounds. Consume cooked varieties and avoid common commercial button mushrooms, which may contain natural carcinogens.

As a health coach one of the key tips I give my clients is the importance of having a morning routine. Starting your day right sets the tone for how the rest of your day will flow. These recipes are super simple and provide you with a ton of energy and nutrients.
