So inflammation. I'm sure you know that you don't want your body to be inflamed. When something is inflamed, it's exacerbated, ie., not happy. Your system becomes inflamed when it senses a foreign invader in your body, and then goes on attack.

What Causes Inflammation?

When the body gets one of these stressors, it sends out an alert to attack. This system works well in the instance of a fall or sprain in that the body sends helpers over to help fix the problem. When the body is bombarded with continuous toxins and allergens, however, it goes, and stays, on high alert, creating chronic inflammation in the body. This can cause fatigue, headaches, joint pain and eventually lead to issues like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's and even cancer.

If anti-inflammatory foods had a love child, turmeric would be the chosen one. Curcumin is the compound that gives turmeric its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Just make sure you pair turmeric with fat and black pepper so you increase its bioavailability and reap all of its rich rewards. Here are some of my favorite turmeric recipes.

Leafy Green Vegetables

Dark leafy greens are also a strong antidote to curbing inflammation in the body. They're loaded with vitamin E and antioxidants to help revive ailing cells in the body.


Salmon is another big inflammation killer. It's loaded with healthy omega-3 fats which can help your heart, mood and brain. Since your body can't make omega 3's on its own, you need to look to outside sources like fatty fish, or even walnuts and flax seeds. Just be sure to grind your flax seeds to reap the rewards like in my kale rosemary super seed crackers


Blueberries are a great staple to have in the house because not only are they low in sugar, but they're also high in antioxidants and inflammation-fighting properties. Blueberries also contain quercetin, which is powerful in helping to fight cancer.


Broccoli has all your antioxidants and then some like healthy doses of Vitamin K and C. You'll also get a strong dose of magnesium and potassium thrown in for added benefit.

Enjoy all of these nutrient-rich ingredients and recipes while help keep inflammation at bay. Your body will thank you for years to come!
