UNDERSTANDING INFLAMMATION

You’ve probably heard the term inflammation before, but you may not understand how inflammation is related to food and the way you feel from day to day.

When you think of inflammation, maybe you think of the pain and redness that occurs on your skin because of a rash or an allergic reaction. If you’ve ever broken a bone, been stung by a bee, or cut your finger, you may be familiar with your body’s immune response to protect itself. The inflammation that occurs is an essential survival mode that helps our bodies fight off harmful microbes and begin to repair itself. This acute inflammation is great at protecting our bodies in those instances. But too much of a good thing can be harmful, and that’s where chronic inflammation comes in.

BREAKFAST | CARAMELIZED BANANA OATMEAL

Imagine having bananas Foster for breakfast! The natural sugars from the maple syrup and bananas caramelize in the pan and make a sweet topping to go with the healthy and fiber-filled oatmeal.

DIPS, SPREADS, AND SNACKS | SPICY CHICKEN THAI-INSPIRED LETTUCE WRAPS

Boston lettuce holds a spicy, sweet, crunchy Asian fusion filling in these lettuce wraps. The filling makes great leftovers, so pack a bowl with some extra lettuce for a lunch you’ll look forward to.

PASTA AND GRAINS | SAUSAGE AND SAGE PUMPKIN PASTA BAKE

When the aromas of this meal fill your kitchen, it will immediately take you to a crisp fall day. With cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg, this pasta sauce will warm you up and pleasantly surprise you with the creamy texture the pumpkin gives it.

POULTRY AND PORK | CALIFORNIA CHICKEN COBB SALAD

Just imagine you’re sitting on the patio of a coastal restaurant in California enjoying every bite of this fresh, protein-packed salad. I like to make a double batch of this herb vinaigrette—I pour it on everything I can!

BEEF | FLANK STEAK WITH KALE CHIMICHURRI

Fresh herbs make every meal better! Chimichurri is a South American condiment often served with grilled meat. The finely chopped herbs have an aromatic flavor, while the lemon and vinegar give the sauce a tangy punch. I added fresh kale to this recipe because it’s full of vitamin K, an anti-inflammatory powerhouse.

SEAFOOD | CHIPOTLE SHRIMP AND GRITS

Shrimp and grits originated as a breakfast dish, often called “breakfast shrimp,” and has since transformed into a dish served around the world as an entree or brunch special. This recipe takes the dairy and cheese out of the grits by swapping in nutritional yeast and creamy coconut milk. The omega-3 fatty acids from the shrimp are a key player in reducing inflammation naturally.

MEATLESS MEALS AND SIDES | SPICY BLACK BEAN NACHOS WITH CASHEW QUESO

I can’t resist nachos as an appetizer, but it’s also fun to eat them as a main course. This recipe is just spicy enough, and loaded with fiber to keep you full.

BEVERAGES | WATERMELON-MINT MOCKTAIL

Citrus is rich in vitamin C, so the added orange and lime juice in this mocktail helps you fight inflammation on the hottest summer days. The texture is like a smooth slushy, and there’s just a hint of mint flavor from the herb being infused in the simple syrup. I highly recommend keeping frozen watermelon on hand for anytime the craving strikes.

DESSERTS | DARK CHOCOLATE–CASHEW BUTTER CUPS

These cashew butter caps (aka fat bombs) aren’t lacking in the healthy fat department, with both nut butter and coconut oil. I like to end my evening with one or two of these little bites to satisfy my sweet tooth.
