Chronic inflammation is on the increase in our modern world, leading to common symptoms such as fatigue and joint pain, even in young people. It destroys the body’s ability to self-regulate, leaving the immune system continually hyper-alert, potentially causing damage to healthy cells and organs. Risk factors include excess weight, chronic stress, alcohol, smoking, or a diet high in processed foods, saturated fats and refined sugars. The good news is that including anti-inflammatory foods in your diet can help relieve symptoms, reduce the risk of chronic inflammation and promote well-being. By swapping to a diet rich in unprocessed and anti-inflammatory ingredients you can regain control over your health and experience real change.
The recipes in this book have been created especially for their anti-inflammatory effect and, in addition, are all gluten free. Many are also vegetarian or vegan, dairy- and nut-free, making it easy to cater for the differing needs of family and friends. This delicious range of everyday meals, suitable for all occasions and members of the family, makes the journey to better health easy and enjoyable. Also included are two-weeks of simple meal plans to kickstart your anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
