ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS | what I eat every week

By | 7 April 2020

These are the anti-inflammatory foods I eat every week to reduce inflammation in my body. An anti-inflammatory diet can help with reducing joint pain and arthritis, healing the gut (key if you have celiac, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s or IBS), getting rid of eczema and psoriasis, and keeping other autoimmune conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis in check. It’s also beneficial if you suffer from anxiety or depression.

I became well versed in wholesome, anti-inflammatory foods several years ago when I embraced a whole foods diet. After being diagnosed with four autoimmune diseases in two years I realized my body was fighting massive immune system inflammation and I needed to provide reinforcements. Those reinforcements came in the form of groceries.

Watch the video for the list of anti-inflammatory foods – it’s what I eat every week. And enjoy the full blog post below all the healthy recipes on my website!

    I learned so much!!! I love this video especially how you mentioned more than the anti-inflammatory aspect but also the other vitamins and what diseases they combat. I also loved learning that chia means strength in the Mayan language. Wow I’ve gained a lot of knowledge. Thank you!

    I enjoyed learning about foods that are anti-inflammatory. For all you younger People watching, take care of your health, because as you get older you can experience different health problems at the same time which can make meal planning that much more difficult. Foods that are ok with one health problem may not be ok for the other health problem or problems you may have. It gets real tricky!

    Thank you so much for sharing that. I am glad it helped you reduce inflammation. Although, I have to caution some of you with inflammation to limit some foods on the list, if your symptoms are not improved or worsen after introducing those foods into the diet. Spinach, Swiss chard, kale, raspberries, chia seeds, almonds, tumeric. Those foods, even in small enough quantities can skyrocket my inflammation and effect so many other people with inflammation caused by oxalates. Oxalates are compounds found in all those foods and other 'healthy' superfoods out there that can greatly damage joints, soft tissues and even organs in the body of people who are sensitive to them, and, believe me, there are many of those people. I feel like I have to give a warning here since when people start drinking spinach, carrot juice and chia smoothies every day and experience kidneys shutdown or joint breakdown , it is not fun, especially when you think that you are doing all these good things for yourself. Just a word of caution. If you start feeling worse, do a research about oxalates.

    I made your falafel bread twice and they were not as green as your after baking for 20 minutes? What did I do incorrectly?

    Just found your video and love it! Thank you for this info and recipes! I also appreciate your sharing that you Dad calls greens "rabbit food" and has Parkinsons disease. My dad, also use to always say the exact same thing about salads of any kind. He had dementia also at the end of his life. So perhaps those sad or difficult times of ours end up inspiring us to do and eat well so we can thrive. It's a good way to honor our fathers, eh? Best to you! I'm a new fan! <3 😉

    Several red-colored spots can be found inside my elbows as well as legs. It is been with me for nearly all of my life. The 1st couple of days, it absolutely was a bit flaky. The redness are generally gone immediately after using this eczema guide “Kemcοzο Mυz” (Gοοgle it). Subsequently after the 4th day of following the manual, I notice the flakiness to be removed and the impacted spot are actually treated. .

    A huge source of anti-inflammatory foods that you didn't mention is legumes. They include beans, peas and lentils and may have twice the anti-oxidants of a serving of berries. All blue zones include beans as a regular part of their diet and all cultures where beans are commonly eaten have better health when compared to cultures were beans are seldom eaten. For example, Mexicans pretty much eat the same greasy, sugary, salty junk food diet as Americans, but because they incorporate beans into their diet regularly, their health is generally better than ours.

    I would love to know what family of greens does spinach fall into. I want to start adding more greens into my diet but I get violently sick from raw and cooked spinach. If you could help me with this I will appreciate it very much. Thank you for your time.

      Spinach belongs to the chenopodiaceae family (also known as goosefoot), a family of nutritional powerhouses including beets, chard and quinoa. It shares a similar taste profile with these two other vegetables; the bitterness of beet greens and the slightly salty flavour of chard.

      Hope that helps

    When speaking about berries be careful because I was diagnosed with diverticulitis and the cause was explained to me from tiny seeds from blackberries.
