What we eat affects how we feel, certain foods act as inflammatory triggers and can affect our moods, you heard that expression, “you are what you eat”
Eating organic food
Certainly, eating organic will help aid digestion, because these foods have not been tampered with, example, herbicides, pesticides with a higher nutritional value.
Organic food is often fresher because it doesn't contain preservatives that make it last longer. Some foods may trigger an inflammatory response in the body, such as tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and white potatoes, these foods contain a compound called solanine (a poisonous compound which is present in green potatoes and in related plants. It is a steroid glycoside of the saponin group), which can cause inflammation in certain individual.
Inflammation friendly foods
So what kind of food should you eat if you suffer from inflammation? I always like short grain brown rice, because of its alkalinity other foods would be lentils, white meats like chicken and turkey, any oily fish, green leafy vegetables, and broccoli. Nuts are a good addition, although not peanuts, any seeds, non-citrus fruits, and of course one of the most important factors to help eliminate waste, plenty of water! Ideally, we should be drinking at least 1.5 litres
Inflammation trigger foods
Here are some foods to avoid:
- Fizzy and sugary drinks,
- Red meat
