Anti-inflammatory Food Lisa

There are so many foods and food combinations that cause inflammation in the body- processed foods, sugar, corn, wheat, soy, gluten, dairy, etc. It’s important to know what foods combat inflammation. Turmeric, garlic, almonds, and berries are foods that should be consumed daily.

Fueling up with these organic lentil and raw veggie wraps that I threw together. Simple recipe- butter lettuce or collard greens, lentils, red pepper, pineapple, beets, avocado, and fresh basil with cracked pepper and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Pretty much all/any veggies would work. Yummy!

Clean Eating Grocery Guide

1656091_452171494908332_437344012_n
This is an excellent basic clean eating grocery guide to take with you for those looking to ditch processed foods all together. As always buy local when possible and if you eat meat buy organic and grass fed beef as well as pastured eggs, and organic ‘dirty dozen’ produce.  In addition, wild caught seafood is best, avoid most farm-raised and be mindful of mercury consumption in larger fish. Good cooking oils to have on hand- coconut oil, ghee, avocado oil, or sustainably sourced palm oil for high heat cooking and olive oil for low heat cooking. Eat clean, feel great!
