A number of nutritionists and physicians have developed anti-inflammatory diets. Christopher Cannon, a Harvard professor of medicine, co-wrote "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Anti-Inflammation Diet." Dr. Andrew Weil has an anti-inflammatory diet food pyramid that I like to use. The anti-inflammatory diet is very close to the Mediterranean diet. Also, Harvard University has developed a new Healthy Eating Pyramid that encourages consuming whole-grain foods, unsaturated fats such as plant oils, fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, poultry, eggs and moderate amounts of dairy foods. It also suggests avoiding as much as possible red meat, butter, sweets and white foods such as rice, potatoes and pasta.
I will introduce you to the anti-inflammatory diet principles supported by so many including Christopher Cannon and Dr. Andrew Weil.
AND I will take it one step farther by making it all about enjoying a RAINBOW of colorful and nutritious and FUN food at every meal!
