Anti Inflammatory Smoothie

anti inflammatory smoothie recipe

Over the last few years, many studies have shown that inflammation contributes to a number of health conditions and symptoms. Things like skin rashes, digestive troubles, headaches and migraines, brain fog, fatigue, and more can often be attributed to inflammation. So I took foods that I know help with these symptoms and blended them up in an anti inflammatory smoothie recipe that legit works.

Foods that cause inflammation

The foods that cause inflammation won’t surprise you. Red meat, processed and preserved meats and sausage, dairy, gluten and white flours/starches, refined sugar, and preservatives top the list. A diet rich in these potent foods will most likely cause you to feel cruddy anyway. If you’re susceptible to inflammation, these things can make symptoms even worse.

What can you do? Consuming a diet that is full of foods that fight inflammation is a great place to start.

Focus on whole foods that are very similar to a Mediterranean diet, making it super doable for most people in the western world. Heck, I can get all of these foods at my local grocery store! It’s hard to make excuses when it’s accessible, right? Here’s the list to focus on:

  • tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • leafy greens + cruciferous veggies
  • fruit, berries + other low glycemic fruits
  • citrus – lemons and oranges
  • fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids – salmon, sardines, mackerel
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • turmeric

Certain seeds also have inflammation fighting properties – like chia, hemp and flax seed. The good news is, you can find them all right in my Protein Smoothie Boost, plus 10g of protein!
