Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid
“Following an anti-inflammatory diet can help counteract the chronic inflammation that is a root cause of many serious diseases, including those that become more frequent as people age. It is a way of selecting and preparing foods based on science that can help people achieve and maintain optimum health over their lifetime.”- Andrew Weil, M.D
ChocolateIt has its place, in moderation. The type Weil recommends - plain and dark, with at least 70 percent cocoa - is relatively lower in sugar and provides healthy fat.
SpicesThe compounds in ginger, turmeric, and other spices protect our tissue and organs from inflammation.
FishRich in Omega-3 fats that help fight disease by reducing inflammation in the blood vessels. It also helps in lowering the risk of heart problems.
DairyHigh in protein to give you the energy needed for each day.
Asian MushroomsThese mushrooms contain compounds that enhance immune function. However, never eat mushrooms raw.
Whole GrainsAllow you to digest slowly, reducing frequency of blood sugar spikes that promote inflammation. You should consume grains that are intact, or are in a few large pieces; not whole wheat bread or product made from flour.
VegetablesRich in flavanoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of color, cooked and raw.
FruitsMinimize consumption of tropical fruits, like bananas and pineapples, and load up on berries, cherries, apples, and pears.
