Spinach, kale, and romaine, etc. are all terrific inflammation fighters because they’re rich in antioxidants and other natural anti-inflammatory agents. Yet another reason to start your day with a "green smoothie."  Key "smoothie" into the search box above for a variety of recipes!
2. Turmeric
This pungent spice has been shown to have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, it’s delicious!

3. Flaxseed 
Flax contains omega-3 fats, which are anti-inflammatory. Try sprinkling a little freshly ground flax on your salad, stir fry it in with your veges or throw some in with your smoothie.  They make wonderful crackers too.

High in anti-oxidants, a healthy choice that tastes good!
5. Broccoli, cabbage, and other cruciferous veggies
These foods are high in anti-oxidants, and they have a natural detoxifying effect. Therefore, you can eat them and cleanse your body of any harmful chemicals that are contributing to inflammation.
