Improve your diet and ward off health problems caused by inflammation with this clearly organized directory of 50 anti-inflammatory foods, complete with tips and recipes.

The older we get, the more likely inflammation of the body can be harmful and cause long-term damage. Researchers have linked low-grade, persistent inflammation to premature aging, heart disease, MS, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, psoriasis, arthritis, and cancer. While anti-inflammatory drugs do exist, they might not always be the best option. Fortunately, aggressive inflammation can be remedied by a simple change in diet.

The Complete Guide to Anti-Inflammatory Foods introduces 50 anti-inflammatory foods that can easily be incorporated into your day-to-day diet with tips and tricks to keep their anti-inflammatory properties active while preparing your favorite meals and snacks. Most anti-inflammatory foods are naturally vegan and gluten free, and include:

  • Tomatoes
  • Avocados
  • Green Beans
  • Bell Peppers
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Chickpeas
  • And more!

The guide explains how each food contributes to improving your health and well-being, and includes tasty recipe suggestions for combining several anti-inflammatory foods to boost your daily intake. The benefits of each food are listed, such as antioxidants and polyphenols—protective compounds found in plants—that may contribute to protecting against inflammation, as well as the nutritional breakdown of foods to help include them as part of restricted diets such as Keto or low GI.

Authored by Lizzie Streit, a renowned nutritionist and prolific contributor to, one of the most widely read sites on nutrition, this anti-inflammatory guide demystifies which anti-inflammatory foods are the most worthwhile to include in your diet and includes a list of foods to avoid, while offering advice on assessing your diet along with a detailed guide to which health concerns may benefit from an anti-inflammatory diet.
