Last Thursday I shared a more personal post talking about some of my recent diet changes.  I mentioned that I am continuing to follow a mostly plant-based diet (roughly 85-90% of the time), but that I am working to adjust my diet in ways to hopefully address the chronic joint and music pain I have been facing over the past year.  I took the advice of many of you and have scheduled an appointment with a rheumatologist.  I am hoping that my doctor’s visit will help shed some light on this unexplained pain.  But until then, I am being especially diligent regarding what I am eating and drinking.

One step that I am taking is working to incorporate more anti-inflammatory foods into my diet.  I already mentioned last week that I am eating seafood a couple of times per week, but it turns out that there are a lot of plant-based foods with anti-inflammatory properties as well!

Did you know that all of the following foods can help decrease inflammation in the body (source)?

whole grains
dark leafy greens

nuts (especially almonds and walnuts)
soy milk
flax seeds
ginger and turmeric
tart cherries

Now do you know what is even better?  All of these foods can be thrown into a delicious and refreshing smoothie for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert.  It is time to fight inflammation any time of day with healthy plant-based smoothies.  And lucky for you, I have created a Foodie.com collection with all of my favorites!  Enjoy 🙂

    My favorite anti-inflammatory magic is TURMERIC!

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 15, 2015, 8:08 am

      I LOVE turmeric in savory dishes, but haven’t tried it in smoothies just yet. I am excited to!

    I just got over strep throat and I couldn’t take Advil because of a drug interaction (and Tylenol doesn’t do much for me) and my mom recommended turmeric.

      Isn’t it crazy how food can be medicine? Gotta love it 🙂

    These look delicious! I love smoothies. I really should have more of them, if for no other reason than to eat some of the foods that I don’t get enough of in my regular diet (*cough, dark leafy greens, *cough)… =)

    • ClnEatingVegGrl January 15, 2015, 1:07 pm

      It is definitely the EASIEST way to sneak in those healthy dark leafy greens!

  • Alli January 15, 2015, 8:56 am

    I’ve never tried turmeric or ginger in a smoothie. I’ll definitely give it a go. Thanks.

      It seems to kind of be the new “it” ingredient for smoothies these days. Let me know if you try it out!

    This is great, Hannah! I’ve become a huge fan of using beet juice lately. The water where we live in Chiang Mai seems to really aggravate my skin and give me bad acne, and I’ve found beet juice does wonders.

      That’s so crazy! Isn’t it awesome how food can be our medicine? I have just recently starting eating beets, and I think it is going to take a little bit of time for me to get on board with them.

    This is a great source! We have a smoothie every morning. I have a lot of allergies, so I need a smoothie that helps with that!

    I have a Breakfast Cookie Recipe up that’s gluten free, and sugar free. http://theapels.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-best-breakfast-cookies.html

    Good luck with your dietary changes! I hope they help you feel better!
