In brief: Anti inflammatory
A whole food diet, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, legumes, lean protein and healthy fats like omega 3 fatty acids found in some fish like salmon.
Avoid processed foods, too much sugar, simple carbs, like bread, cookies cakes and crackers.These cause your blood sugar to rise quickly and increase inflammation in your body. Some people do better avoiding nightshade vegetables.
