|As someone who struggles with Rheumatoid Arthritis myself, I am acutely aware of how daily choices can affect arthritic pain. And while it’s often overlooked, diet can have a significant impact on RA. Personally, I have found that the mediterranean is helpful for managing my autoimmunity.|
Some foods that are part of the mediterranean diet and have anti-inflammatory properties include:
◾Fatty fish like shrimp, tuna and salmon. They are high in omega-3’s, which has been shown to reduce inflammation. Shrimp also has a myriad of other health benefits, such as antioxidative properties.
◾Fresh bell peppers. They have sinapic acid, quercetin, and ferulic acid, which are antioxidants linked to reduced inflammation.
◾Chili Powder. It gains its anti-inflammatory properties from capsaicinoids.
◾Garlic. Garlic contains diallyl disulfide, which reduces the effects of inflammatory cytokines.
Here’s a recipe for Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas that me and my family eat weekly. Even my two young boys love it! This recipe is great if you are looking for quick and easy, both before and after dinner. And– the clean-up takes just a few minutes!
|I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as I do! This is just one dish you can incorporate into your diet to reduce inflammation. However, everyone is different! That is why it’s so important for you to schedule your free consultation today. I can work with you personally to discover what foods may trigger flare-ups, incorporate healthy food (that you enjoy!?) into your diet, and get your health under your control again.|
