We battle inflammation for many reasons. Inflammation can be caused by stress, lifestyle choices, food allergies or sensitivities that we may or may not know we have, and from environmental toxins, to name a few.
Some of these we can control, some we cannot. But there are definite ways we can combat the inflammation in its tracks, and a lot of those have to do with our food choices.
Some inflammation causing foods can include:
processed foods, sugar, dairy products, alcohol, fried foods.
Some foods that can help fight inflammation can include:
leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and brussels sprouts, pineapple, blueberries, and ginger, to name a few.
Being mindful of reducing as many of the inflammation causing foods, and replacing them with inflammation-fighting foods is a great place to start.
What’s your favorite inflammation fighting food I listed? Mine is blueberries 🙂
