List of Healthy Foods that Heal Inflammation
Did you know that if you eat the right list of healthy foods, these are foods that heal inflammation? So you might be thinking, what are the top must-have foods that you should always keep in your fridge?
I have three delicious foods with omega-3 fatty acids, and foods that are high in antioxidants as a source of vitamin C, to keep on hand that help fight inflammation! All of these delicious easy healthy recipes are from my Eating Well to Fight Arthritis cookbook.
Salmon is One of Best Foods with Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Salmon is probably my number one must have food to keep in the fridge. If you don’t eat salmon, it’s great to add to your diet because it’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is one of the best foods with omega-3 fatty acids so it is important on the list of healthy foods that heal inflammation. Your body absorbs them much better through food than through an omega pill.
Salmon is quick cooking and so easy to make. One of my favorite recipes is my Oven Baked Salmon with Spinach and Feta Stuffing.
Edamame Makes Great Snack or Healthy Recipe Ingredient
My number two must-have food to keep in the fridge is edamame. If you are not a fish fan, no problem! Try edamame or maybe you know it as soybeans. Edamame is another great option for foods with omega-3 fatty acids which we know are foods that heal inflammation. Edamame is low in fat and high in fiber and protein.
Citrus Foods High in Antioxidants as Good Source of Vitamin C
My number three must have on the list of healthy foods to keep in your fridge is citrus. Oranges, limes, grapefruits, and lemons are a great source of vitamin C. Research shows that citrus foods high in antioxidants and vitamin C, are foods that heal inflammation, and also play an important role in growth and tissue repair.
