  1. Healthy Joints

    Inflammation in joints can be painful, and can curb your exercise goals to boot, but a healthy eating strategy can help you get up and running in no time!

    Reduce inflammation by avoiding:

    • Fried foods
    • Charred meats
    • Highly processed foods

    While no one food can erase the pain, there are some that can help ease it:

    • Whole grains – oats, quinoa, barley
    • Richly-colored fruits – cherries, blackberries, strawberries, cranberries and grapes
    • Vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables – tomatoes, oranges and red peppers
    • Foods naturally-rich in calcium and vitamin D – canned salmon, low-fat yogurt and milk
    • Omega 3-rich foods – flax, walnuts, olive oil, fish and avocados
    • Spices – turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger have anti-inflammatory properties
    • Dark colored green vegetables – kale, broccoli, Swiss chard

    Many of these foods, such as low-fat yogurt, quinoa, oranges, tomatoes, salmon and broccoli are included in the Diet-to-Go meal plans. In addition, our meals are minimally processed and are never fried, so, enjoy, knowing that they are helping to reduce inflammation.
