Eat For Your Health: Arthritis
Happy 2016 everyone! By now, you are all three days in to your New Year’s resolutions. How many of you made the decision (for real, this time) to get your diet on track and move your body a little more? According to Neilsen, staying fit and healthy and losing weight are still the top two resolutions people make. (And the most broken resolution? Losing weight.)
If a healthier lifestyle is a goal you’ve set for yourself this year, let’s take that journey together. I have so many exciting things planned for you all this year, and I can’t wait to get started.
In case you missed last week’s post on Miss Epicure, I introduced the new series I am collaborating on with one my lovely friends. We are tackling some of the health issues we face, and talking about how we can use nutrition to prevent and manage the symptoms of these issues. So, strap on your seat belts, take a ride with us, and let’s learn how to Eat For (Y)Our Health.
If you haven’t already, head over to Savour and Shine, where Britney breaks down arthritis, its various forms and what we can eat to manage the symptoms.
When you are ready, have a look at the meal plan below. You will find all the nutrients you need to alleviate those arthritis symptoms, especially omega 3’s and antioxidants.
This meal plan is designed for one person, so if you are cooking for two or a family, make adjustments as necessary. Links to recipes are below.
(This recipe came from one of my cookbooks at home. It’s super simple: prepare enough rice for three servings, or more if you want. Toss 2-3 cups broccoli with olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Roast broccoli and pumpkin seeds for approximately 20 minutes at 400 F. Mix all ingredients together and serve.)
What health issue would you like us to tackle next?
