Anti-Inflammatory Meals menu

Integrative nutritionist Jennie Miremadi is sharing a full day of anti-inflammatory meals with us – snacks included. The anti-inflammatory diet is a preventative, body-balancing formula for eating well which we’ve explored in-depth on the site including this piece with Jennie. If you’ve been wanting to incorporate more foods that fight inflammation into your diet but wern’t sure how to go about it, this menu will help you out… 

Now that you’re up to speed on the life changing potential of an anti-inflammatory diet, I want to show you how easy (and delicious) it is to eat this way. So, I’ve put together this day of anti-inflammatory meals for you to try! It not only includes anti-inflammatory foods in every meal and snack, it also excludes the common inflammation-triggering foods I remove in the main elimination diet I use with my clients. Try eating anti-inflammatory meals this way for a day and I think you’ll be hooked!
