Eat more whole foods.
“Get back to one-ingredient foods, such as chicken, broccoli and apples,” says Neilsen. Also, keep animal products, like meat and dairy, to a minimum. However, eat fish, especially cold-water varieties, which are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, along with added sugars and processed foods. Make whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and pulses, such as kidney beans, chickpeas and lentils, regular menu items. Plant-based foods are sources of prebiotics, fibre and nutrients, all which work to fight inflammation.
