Avoid these foods, which can trigger your body’s inflammatory response:
• Refined grains, such as white bread and white rice
• Red meat, or any meat that’s high in saturated fat
• Processed foods
• Nightshade vegetables, including onions, potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes and peppers. For some people, like Hathaway, this type of vegetable can cause inflammation, according to Keller.
Eat these foods, which can help your body combat inflammation:
• Fish. Hathaway doesn’t eat fish, but if you do, load up on fatty fish such as salmon and sardines. They contain fatty acids that help your body fight inflammation.
• Olive oil. Even a small amount of olive oil gives you a hefty dose of monounsaturated fat, which wards off inflammation.
• Peanuts and peanut butter. Not only do they contain healthy fats, but peanuts and peanut butter are also great sources of protein if you don’t eat meat.
• Almonds. A Hathaway favorite, these nuts are chockfull of good-for-you fats.
• Dark chocolate. Yes, chocolate is on this list! In fact, research shows that regularly eating dark chocolate helps reduce inflammation.
• Colorful fruits and veggies. Eat the rainbow. Stock up on antioxidant powerhouses such as kale, carrots, blueberries and raspberries.
• Cherries. “These red fruits significantly reduce inflammation because they contain potent antioxidants called anthocyanins,” notes Keller.
• Turmeric and ginger. Both of these spices contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds.
