Anti-Inflammatory Foods – Fruit!

When eating an anti-inflammatory diet how much and what kind of fruit should I eat is a question I get all the time.   Here are some simple rules to follow:

How much: 3-4 servings per day (one serving is equal to one medium size piece of fruit, ½ cup chopped fruit, ¼ cup of dried fruit)

Healthy choices:Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, oranges, pink grapefruit, red grapes, plums, pomegranates, blackberries, cherries, apples and pears – all lower in glycemic load than most tropical fruits

Why: Fruits are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids with both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Go for a wide range of colors, choose fruit that is fresh in season or frozen and buy organic when possible.
