Inflammation is one way that our body responds to injuries and infections. While some inflammation can be protective, sometimes, whether because of stress, poor health, our diet, or other factors, we may experience harmful chronic inflammation. When this happens, it can set the stage for a variety of illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and even Alzheimer’s disease.
An anti-inflammatory diet is intended to lower the risk of chronic inflammation and any associated conditions. This type of diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, pulses (peas, lentils, and beans), seafood, and heart-healthy unsaturated oils, such as olive and avocado oil. While foods like dairy, red meat, and processed foods may still be eaten, they should be consumed infrequently as these foods can promote the body’s natural inflammatory response.
The meals in our anti-inflammatory bundle were chosen with all of these considerations in mind. Many of these meals are dairy-free, several are entirely plant-based, and all of them are full of vegetables and cooked in olive or avocado oil.
Since these entrees are packed with so many plant ingredients, like spinach, kale, lentils, and butternut squash, they’re also rich in nutrients that our body always needs like fiber, potassium, and iron.
An anti-inflammatory diet is a health-supporting pattern of eating that’s perfectly suitable whether or not someone is living with a chronic condition. To sample a variety of tasty, convenient meals that are packed with healthy ingredients, the anti-inflammatory bundle is a great option!
