No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Any good recipes or foods to combat inflammation? I have been inflamed throughout my body for the past two years, appreciate any good smoothie ideas. Thanks
Turmeric is great for inflammation. I take it in capsule form, but I have friends who add it to smoothies. check out this link. http://www.mnn.com/food/healthy-eating/stories/the-amazing-health-b...
Thanks, I have some and I'll add it to my smoothies or food.
Another nice article at Savory Lotus - if you're a vegan, obviously only focus on those foods, but it has great info here: http://www.savorylotus.com/top-8-anti-inflammatory-foods/
I've been having a wonderful Turmeric Tonic almost daily now that has been helping me with stiffness, inflammation and arthritis. You can get my recipe here:
You may also want to try avoiding foods that are known to cause inflammation. I'm currently on an anti-inflammatory diet prescribed by my naturopath and can feel a huge difference in level of joint pain etc when I eat something that isn't on it. Here's a list of some of the foods you may want to avoid:
:: Nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers)
:: Wheat and most other grains (quinoa, buckwheat, and millet are ok in moderation, also brown rice (although it raises blood sugar level).
:: All sweeteners except raw honey in moderation
Tumeric+ Honey or Maple Syrup+ apple juice= anti inflammation tonic I use quite a bit of turmeric when I am having symptoms. I will take 1 teaspoon of turmeric with 1 teaspoon of honey and 2 tablespoons of apple juice - 4 or 5 times a day! Just mix up small batches to take like medicine. It is amazing! It is bitter and I really don't like the taste of it in foods.
