How to Follow An Anti-inflammatory Diet? These days we consume too many inflammatory foods and this has taken a toll on our health. A poor diet combined with a lack of physical activity, stress, and unhealthy habits such as smoking or drinking alcohol has created the perfect breeding ground for the development of inflammation.
The Anti-inflammatory Diet is easy to follow
The thing about most diets is that they can be difficult to stick to overtime, but this isn’t true with the Anti-inflammatory Diet.
Opting for foods that reduce inflammation is super simple, since they are easy to find, inexpensive, and are very versatile, which means that they can be incorporated into a multitude of dishes on a daily basis.
Do you know how to Follow An Anti-inflammatory Diet?
Probiotics: are good bacteria that help the intestinal system to function properly. Examples? Kefir, kombucha, yogurt,and sauerkraut.
Did you know that years ago yogurt was sold in pharmacies to combat stomach and intestinal problems?
Room temp water with Lemon while fasting: This well-known ritual not only activates the body but also purifies the liver, which eliminates waste in the body.
Fiber: diets rich in fiber have scientifically proven anti-inflammatory effects. Studies show that fiber lowers levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation, helping to lower the level of mortality in chronic kidney disease even.
Omega 3: include foods such as seaweed, olive oil, avocado, nuts, salmon, sardines, or chia, and flax seeds. For me, these foods are like medicine, and they are also delicious, what more could you ask for?
Infusions: are drinks that have incredible anti-inflammatory and antioxidant power. My favorite is matcha tea, a type of green tea that contains 10 to 30 times more catechins – the antioxidants in green tea – than in a normal infusion.
Pineapple: its bromelain content reduces inflammation. The effect of this fruit is so powerful that many people notice it as soon as they eat it. Are you one of them?
Eating Oats for Breakfast Debloats You
Oats: Is one of the healthiest foods in existence: it combats fluid retention, is filling, relaxes the nervous system, and, according to many studies such as this one carried out by the University of Turin, proves that it has important anti-inflammatory properties.
Cacao: The polyphenols in pure cocoa (no sugar or additives…) reduce inflammation. Choose a good bar like these that you can eat every day without feeling guilty and without jeopardizing your health. My favorite is definitely: Chocolicius.
Turmeric: Did you know that turmeric has enormous anti-inflammatory properties? It delays the appearance of aging, prevents Alzheimer’s disease, and is known as a natural antibiotic?
Olives: is one of the best sources of vitamin E available as it fights free radicals, premature aging, and oxidation of the body.
Green leaves: watercress, spinach, chard… They have many antioxidants, such as chlorophyll, which help to reduce inflammation in the body.
5 Simple Steps to Start An Anti-inflammatory Diet:
- 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day: we’ve heard it a thousand times but few people actually do it.
- Buy Organic Meat: This way you can be sure that the animals were not treated with antibiotics and hormones.
- Choose the nuts you eat wisely: Untoasted and Unsalted! I particularly love nut spreads, have you tried them?
- Careful with Yogurts: not all of them are good, in fact, most of them are full of sugar, sweeteners, and colorings. Check the labels carefully!
- Aloe Vera Juice: this drink has powerful anti-inflammatory effects as well as an immunostimulant and anti-tumor effects. To reduce digestive inflammation it is recommended to take 40 to 75 ml. of natural juice per day on an empty stomach.
