More Foods to Fight Inflammation

Did you get a chance to read part 1 Foods to Fight Inflammation?

It was a great starting point to fight inflammation.  WHY should I take a pill (or 3) to fight inflammation when I have the answer in my own fridge?  If you watch TV you've probably seen every pill on the market today with the flashy, sensual ads they use to convince you that you NEED another pharmaceutical.

You Don't!  Prevention is the key.  Fight inflammation BEFORE it manifests into a headache, achy and swollen joints, fibromyalgia (which is a common diagnosis for "I don't know what's wrong with you but you have pain"), migraines, RA and so much more.  Diseases feed on inflammation.  Fight inflammation and you fight disease!
Whole flower organic Chamomile (non-gmo) Great for Tea and Tinctures
Chamomile is an inflammation fighting herb/flower.  I made a chamomile tincture a few months ago and I use it whenever I feel the need.  Basil  is another great herb and it's SUPER easy to just add to any recipe.

SUGAR is one of the worst offenders.  Inflammation FEEDS on sugar.  If you have inflammatory health issues or are at risk for cancer and/or diabetes sugar is your enemy!

Foods that are high in fiber, leafy greens, citrus and unprocessed are the way to go.

Fried, processed, fatty, chemical or sugar laden foods can not only increase inflammation they can also make you fat and sick. 

I'm changing things up around here.  Look out for more healthy recipes and non-gmo ingredients.  PLUS, I'm growing my own organic veggies using non-gmo heirloom seeds so I'll be adding to the Harvest Recipes collection.
