Eat with a rainbow in mind– Colorful veggies and fruits are rich in antioxidants and help fight inflammation. Include apples, berries, tomatoes, kale, beets and bell peppers
Fishy Fats- omega three fatty acids block inflammatory compounds. mackeral, sardines, salmon, tuna, trout and herring are good examples. Wild fish over farm or tank grown is preferred
Add spices-tumeric protects joints from inflammation, and ginger has similar properties. Add tumeric to curries, add ginger to stir fries and fresh ginger root sliced in hot water to make tea.
Eliminate sugar drinks– Phosphoric acid in soft drinks makes knee arthritis worse
GREEN TEA– high in antioxidants called catechins and protect joints from cartilage damage
Eat a well balance meal, low in sugar, meat and refined grains since they all increase inflammation.
Have half your plate as fruits and or veggies, 1/4 as whole grains, and 1/4 as protein such as eggs, fish, beans or legumes, nuts and seeds
