Eat to Beat Inflammation

Eat to Beat Inflammation

With so much information out there on what to eat and what not to eat it can be really confusing to make good choices! As a Vegetarian I struggle to get enough Protein in my diet while managing Anti-Inflammatory issues. Ongoing inflammation is problematic and can cause several chronic conditions. Food plays a pivotal role and filling your plate with more anti-inflammatory foods while dialing back on the ones that cause inflammation will improve your body’s ability to ward off future diseases and slow down the aging process.

Check out Dr. Weil’s Food Pyramid very informative.

As mentioned last month I use Fresh Juice as a way to get the majority of my daily requirement of Fruits and Vegetables. I recently tried an Anti-Inflammatory Elixir from and by the time I arrived home the swelling in my hands had gone down dramatically!

Ashley Covington co-owner of Mountain Juicery was nice enough to share the below recipe give it a try:

Inflammation and Skin Elixir

1 oz liquid Turmeric

Drizzle of honey
