There are many times that you want to choose foods to eat that help to soothe inflammatory reactions from allergies or other issues. These foods will help you with anti-inflammatory energy while staying low carb as well.
I strongly encourage people to eat salmon even if they don't need anti-inflammatories. Salmon is chock-full of omega-3s which are wonderful for your brain and body. Salmon doesn't have the mercury issues that swordfish does. Eat at least 1-2 servings of salmon and healthy fish each week!
Tasty and great in salads and stir-fry recipes, shiitake mushrooms are touted for their cancer fighting properties. If you currently don't like mushrooms, it's well worth training yourself to like them.
All the berry family members are high in antioxidants and very good for you. Blueberries are well up there. Some researchers feel that blueberries help to stave off dementia and other illnesses.
One of my favorite veggies, broccoli is delightfully low carb, full of fiber, and full of vitamins as well. Eat it fresh on a salad or steam it for a delightful side course.
I also love brussels sprouts - they're well worth integrating into your menu. They go perfectly with a steak or chicken and are nutritious.
The list of reasons to eat garlic is almost never ending! It even protects you from vampires :) Garlic is one of those wonder foods that helps in a variety of ways. It definitely is anti-inflammatory!
A spinach salad is a great way to get nutrition into you and great flavor at the same time. Toss on your favorite dressing, add in a few items you enjoy like bean sprouts and tomatoes, and relish the delicious treat.
In addition to eating healthy food, make sure you get some movement into your life as well. Gentle walking, swimming, or other activities is a sure-fire way to help any inflammation issues ease. It's good for your lymphatic system as well!
