Last Thursday I received an email from a reader named Beverley: “Your list for the best Anti-Inflammatory foods is very helpful. Do you have a list of the top foods to avoid? Many thanks Bev.” So, in response to Bev, I now have a list of inflammatory foods. By no means is this list the entire picture but it is a good start.

It is important to balance meals out by eating natural healthy foods as often as possible. Yet, it is also wonderful to be able to splurge every once in a while by savoring foods we do not eat on a regular basis. In my case for example, at home I have fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, vegetables, spices, dairy and oils. I keep some cans of herrings and salmon in case I am in the mood for fish. On the other hand, when I go to parties or I travel, I sample other foods to my heart’s content :)
