Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Food List

Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Food List

>What exactly does that mean when
something is anti-inflammatory?>Yeah so… I
mean, I think the point you just made is
huge. We can definitely use food we know,
that healthy eating is important but a
lot of times we struggle to make those
changes and really I think it’s
understanding that there is a direct
link that these diseases can be treated
by what we’re putting on our plate, and I
think that’s why we’re here today.
Rod can really show us a lot of great
suggestions to make some changes to
those recipes and things that were
traditionally used to, but taking foods
that are anti-inflammatory means that
foods that cause a lot of inflammation
are going to actually be those processed
foods. So things that come packaged, that
are already super high in sodium, they’re
gonna have added fats in there that are
not naturally found in the food, and then
also what’s the last one… I forgot now…
super high in calories. So we want to
make sure that we’re being able to cook
our own options and that we’re
reintroducing those vegetables, and the
crazy thing is that less and a half of
the population doesn’t eat a single
vegetable a day, I’m sorry more than a
50% of the population doesn’t eat a
single vegetable a day. When we know that
these foods are so important to us but
we’re not even getting them in.>And we
actually have a nice graphic with
different foods on there we’re gonna pop
up there and if you can talk a little
bit about them not only that’d be great.
>So on here we have anti-inflammatory
foods, tomatoes, fruits, nuts, olive oil,
greens, and fatty fish. Again it’s gonna
be all plant-based foods that come from
a plant itself but these are have
actually been linked with different
properties that have shown to help
reduce even more that inflammation, and
then things like fried foods, sodas,
refined carbohydrates, so things like
white bread, white rice, animal fat, like
lard, and processed meats, like deli meats,
bacon, ham,
sausage, those are going to be your
inflammatory foods.
