15+ Best Anti-Inflammatory Diet Recipes

Are you struggling with inflammation after eating some food? Then it’s time you considered switching up your diet to an anti-inflammatory diet.

But wait!

What is inflammation?

Inflammation is a mechanism the body uses in its healing process. Basically, through inflammation, the body is able to fight illnesses and protect the body from harm.

What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of Inflammation?

Acute inflammation is healthy since it means that your body is actually fighting these illnesses. For example infections, wounds, and tissue damages would not be able to heal without an inflammatory response.

Signs and symptoms of inflammation vary depending on if the condition is acute or chronic.

For acute inflammation, there could be pain, redness, swelling and heat on the inflamed area if it was on the skin.

Chronic inflammation  presents itself in fatigue, serious pain in the body and joints too.

A common type of inflammation is inflammation of the lining of the stomach- a condition called gastritis. The condition is a lifestyle condition due to our eating and drinking habits and it’s signs and symptoms include:

  • Gnawing or burning ache in your upper abdomen.
  • Vomiting.
  • Nausea.
  • A feeling of fullness in your upper abdomen after eating.

To combat the issue, it is important to not only take anti-inflammatory drugs and supplements. You should also consider having an anti-inflammatory diet. Good enoguh, there are lots of healthy anti-inflammatory diet recipes to prepare!

How To Get Started With An Anti-Inflammatory Diet 

1.Embrace a Mediterranean Diet

A Mediterranean diet includes eating lots of fish, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats. It also entails eating moderate amounts of nuts, very little red meat and drinking red wine in moderation.

Try this!

2. Include Healthy Herbs and Spices

From the top anti-inflammatory herbs and spices list, we have turmeric. You can easily make turmeric tahini or easy DIY spices blend to add to your food or drinks.

You can also make turmeric powder or roasted garlic dressing and add it to foods.

Herbs and spices can be very vital in stopping inflammation!

4. Avoid Foods That Cause Inflammation

To start off, reduce your intake on the amount of foods that are high in saturated and trans fats, such as red meats, dairy products and foods containing partially hydrogenated oils.

From the LiveScience Blog;

You have to cut back on the use of cooking oils and margarines that are high in omega-6 fatty acids, such as corn, safflower and sunflower oils. In addition, limit sugary foods and refined carbohydrates, such as white rice and bread.

Basically, the common foods and drinks that cause inflammation include:

  • processed meats.
  • high amounts of sugar like sugary drinks.
  • excessive intake of alcohol.
  • trans fats, found in fried foods.
  • a lot of refined carbs like white bread.
  • white pasta.
  • gluten.
  • soybean oil and vegetable oil.
  • processed snack foods and other packaged foods, such as chips.

5. Eat More Anti-Oxidant Foods

Antioxidants work by reducing levels of free radicals.

    Dalene this post is awesome sis!!👏🏾👏🏾 This reminds me that, balance is key. I definitely find fasting as a great way to clear your head and gain some self-control with eating. Fasting is a chance for me to become closer with God and the opportunity to let my mind catch up with my stomach. I also want to make sure I take my time when I eat and just enjoy my food. Thanks for the healthy reminders sis!!👏🏾👌🏾🍴😋
