8 Delicious Anti-Inflammatory Diet Dishes

There are so many illnesses that involve inflammation. After all, it is part of the body's normal and natural response to injury. Whether you're simply laid up with a sprained ankle or nursing chronic arthritis, this type of diet is important to learn about in order to take every measure towards recovery during emergency situations and periods of more long term healing.

Instead of committing a laundry list of ingredients to memory, I like to think of an anti-inflammatory diet plan as eating for vibrancy. Intense colors in fruits and vegetables usually indicate a high level of antioxidants, which limit inflammation. Plus, trying to steer clear of members of the taupe family will help you weed out dairy, grains, and other things that can agitate the gut.

Here are some great veggie-packed, vibrant recipes that will help you adopt a more inflammation-friendly diet.
