Want to be healthy? This is the best food you can implement in your diet with a purpose to help your body get rid of inflammation!
Fruits and veggies. You are not surprised to see these groups of food first on this list, right? Sure, but be honest with yourself – how often do you eat veggies and fruits? The best ones you can choose are leafy greens because they are rich in important vitamin K. Spinach and kale are your best friends if you are suffering from joint inflammation, but broccoli can help you as well. Cabbage is a nice choice too, and it’s cheap! When it comes to fruits, be sure to fulfill your diet with cherries, raspberries, and blackberries. They are all super rich in needed antioxidants.
Whole grains. If you have thought that all carbs are bad, let me help you reassess your beliefs. Whole-wheat bread, oats, and brown rice are rich in fiber. It is truly important because it helps your bowels get rid of harmful and toxic chemicals. Today, such chemicals are all around us, and we have to help our bodies for a bit to get rid of all the trash. Everyone who is suffering from bowel-related issues must eat enough fiber.
Beans. Very rich in anti-inflammatory substances, beans are always a perfect idea for lunch or dinner. Why wouldn’t you replace meat with it? Bean burgers are tasty and healthy!
Nuts. You don’t have to eat a lot of nuts to become healthy, a handful of it is just enough. Rich in antioxidants, fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium, nuts will make the inflammation go away.
Herbs and spices. Love spicy food? That’s great for you! Garlic and turmeric are the best choices. These two spices will help your body get rid of harmful toxins. Besides that, garlic is known to fight cold and flu too.
Fish. Eating fatty fish can help everyone overcome the difficulties that autoimmune diseases bring. What’s the secret? Omega 3 fatty acids! For healthy vision, bones, muscles, joints, bowels, and overall immune system, you need to get enough of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Sardines, tuna, or salmon, what will be your choice?
*Bonus advice – When it comes to tuna, be sure not to eat it more than twice per week because it contains a lot of aluminum. For pregnant women, it is not even recommended.
Add some healthy oils to your daily menus too, like olive oil.
As you can see, with a little bit of knowledge, you can do a lot for your body and health.
Try to follow this diet for a few weeks, and I promise that you will see many changes.
