Lately, a lot of attention has been given to how dietary changes can decrease inflammation. More research is needed in this area, but the foods that are recognized as having an anti-inflammatory effect are already well known for their health benefits.

1. Colorful fruits and vegetables. Eat the rainbow, including berries, tomatoes, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, mangos and dark green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, kale and spinach.
2. Seeds and nuts. Flaxseeds, walnuts, pistachios, pine nuts, pecans, hazelnuts and almonds.
3. Fish. Oily fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, lake trout and herring.
4. Healthy fats. Organic butter, olive oil and avocado.
5. Beans/legumes. Red beans, pinto beans and black beans.
6. Fresh herbs and spices. Rather than seasoning your meals with just salt, enhance flavor with herbs like garlic, ginger and turmeric.
