Eat to Beat Inflammation

Several years ago, we received a free ebook titled Eat to Beat Inflammation by Vegetarian Times. Inflammation causes most dis-ease, if not all dis-ease. It listed foods that are firefeeders and firefighting.
"a whole food, plant based diet that is low in saturated fats, refined grains, and added sugars" help beat inflammation. Anti-inflammatory foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Also balancing one's omega fats assists with beating inflammation. This does NOT take into consideration food sensitivities or allergies.

Here is a table with the omegas
Omega 6 foods                                                Omega 3 foods
corn oil                                                           non-GMO canola oil
soybean oil                                                     hemp seeds, butter and oil
safflower oil                                                     flaxseeds and oil
sunflower oil                                                    chia seeds
peanut oil                                                       walnuts and oil
cottonseed oil                                                 pastured eggs
sesame oil                                                     olive oil

Here is a table containing firefeeders and firefighters
Firefeeder foods                                               Firefighter foods
transfats                                                          extra virgin olive oil
vegetable oils                                                   whole grains
dirty dozen fruits and vegetables                        lentils
sugary drinks                                                   grapefruit
refined grains                                                   turmeric
salty foods                                                       pistachios
high-fat animal products (all but Omega-3 fish)    celery
potato chips                                                     ginger
                                                                      kale and other dark leafy greens

There are many websites that can be googled on inflammation but we do like this better than most. We also like Andrew Weil, MD. He recommendations are similar. His link is http://www.drweil.com/
