Find an activity you love to do and embrace an anti-inflammatory way of eating - great life recipe!

Summer 2023- Fish Lake, Nova Scotia

STAYING HEALTHY for me was about embracing nature and finding foods that fight inflammation.

What does an anti-inflammatory diet do? Your immune system becomes activated when your body recognizes anything that is foreign—such as an invading microbe, plant pollen, or chemical. This often triggers a process called inflammation. Intermittent bouts of inflammation directed at truly threatening invaders protect your health.

One of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation comes not from the pharmacy, but from the grocery store. "Many experimental studies have shown that components of foods or beverages may have anti-inflammatory effects,"

Choose the right anti-inflammatory foods, and you may be able to reduce your risk of illness.

Consistently pick the wrong ones, and you could accelerate the inflammatory disease process. Foods that cause inflammation

Try to avoid or limit these foods as much as possible:

  • refined carbohydrates, such as white bread and pastries

  • French fries and other fried foods

  • soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages

  • red meat (burgers, steaks) and processed meat (hot dogs, sausage)

  • margarine, shortening, and lard

Anti-inflammatory foods An anti-inflammatory diet should include these foods:

  • tomatoes

  • olive oil

  • green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, kale, and collards

  • nuts like almonds and walnuts

  • fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, and sardines

  • fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and oranges


Live well and find Your Best Life,
