Plant protein.: Plant proteins are consistently less inflammatory than animal proteins, unless you spend a lot to get pasture raised animal proteins. Pea protein is readily available, but keep your eye out for hemp proteins, which are coming soon and may offer an even better anti-inflammatory profile.
