Anti-Inflammatory Foods and Swellmonella

Hot topic people! In a world of keto, carnivore, whole food, go vegan or go home craze, each ”diet” or lifestyle DOES have something in common – and that is encouraging that if you’re going to eat food, make sure its ANTI-INFLAMMATORY. So…WTF does that mean?

Inflammation, in-short, is a protective mechanism that allows your body to defend itself against infection, illness, or injury. It can also occur on a chronic basis, which can lead to various diseases. Inflammation can be caused by eating shitty food, sitting a lot, stress, and not getting enough sleep. So pretty much every working American has inflammation. And more specifically, and UNSCIENTIFICALLY, I call this “SWELLMONELLA”.

By the end of the work day, I exhibit swellmonella if I haven’t been moving around (under 5k steps by 5 PM) and if I’ve eaten processed food. What I’ve done to combat this is introduce anti-inflammatory foods in to my diet. There actually are NOT a lot of anti-inflammatory options, so that can make it easy or hard for you, depending on your food preferences. Here’s my short list of anti-inflammatory foods and drinks:

  1. Blueberries, Raspberries, and Blackberries
  2. Avocados
  3. Tumeric & Curcumin supplement – I use this one by Vimerson Health
  4. Adding cinnamon to my black coffee
  5. Green Tea with lemon
  6. Lemon water with cayenne pepper
  7. Salmon
  8. Cherries

So seriously, that’s it. I know, not a lot of options but I’m just being real here. Other anti-inflammatory foods to consider but may not be the best choice when considering calories & carbs are extra virgin olive oil, dark chocolate, and purple grapes.

Does anyone else have self-diagnosed swellmonella? Try mixing these foods in your diet to combat it. #swellmonellasolutions #thebookofcaleb
