I have compiled a list here for people who would like to move toward a low inflammatory diet or are just wanting to eat a healthier, more whole foods diet. This is just a ‘beginning’ list and, by no means, the ‘be all and end all’ of lists of foods. There are so many amazing fruits and vegetables and grains in the markets and thousands of ways to prepare them. It really is fun to find creative, beautiful ways to prepare these healthy foods. Look around at the stores and see what else is available. Every time I shop, I’m finding more healthier choices out there.
Cow’s milk is very high in protein, and Americans tend to over consume these products. Cow dairy can cause the body to form a lot of mucous which can lead to nasal congestion and other health issues. I ask people, who are trying to heal their symptoms to stay off of cow milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, and ice cream.
Refined sugar has been stripped of all of the vitamins and minerals that should help our bodies break it down, therefore, the sugar leeches Vitamin C and the B’s from our bodies so that it can be processed. Not a good thing for our immune system.
At the health food store, there are lots of varities of non- wheat cereals. Our family’s favorites are ‘Rice Crunch ‘ems’, ‘Puffins’, ‘Shredded Spoonfulls’. There is also puffed millet, rice and corn. Just get into the habit of reading the labels to check the ingredients. We have taught our 6 year old how to read ingredients. So now she tells us if the cereal has too much sugar and not enough protein. Your cereal should have no more than 10 grams of sugar per serving.
In the cracker aisle, you can find rice crackers, at the health food store.
Always use olive oil, flax oil, coconut oil, ghee (clarified butter) and sesame oil instead of safflower, corn, or canola.
