5 Favorite Breakfast Foods for Fighting Inflammation


Pomegranate Seeds

These little red jewels provide a burst of tart sweetness that is perfect for enjoying on avocado toast or breakfast porridge. They are packed with antioxidants which help to fight inflammation that can lead to heart disease & early aging. They are also rich in Vitamin C, essential for maintaining a strong immune system & fiber to support good digestion.


Avocado

Avocados are chock full of healthy fats which help your body to lower inflammation by building and repairing strong cells, stabilizing blood sugar and assisting in the absorption of fat soluble vitamins - A, D E & K. Enjoy avocados alongside pasture raised eggs & fresh arugula or simply cut in half, sprinkle with lemon pepper + sea salt to enjoy by the spoonful.


Matcha Green Tea

Green tea is one of the greatest sources for antioxidants which your body uses to fight inflammation and defend against illness and disease. Scientific studies have shown that Matcha’s benefits also include helping to lower blood pressure, reducing LDL cholesterol and aiding with weight loss. Start your day off with a cup of Matcha green tea for a health boosting alternative to coffee!



Hemp Hearts

These mighty little seeds boast a balanced ratio of essential fatty acids - Omega 3 & Omega 6 - which are critical to building strong cells and lowering inflammation. They are also rich in Vitamins A, C & E, protein, minerals and fiber - making them a delicious nutrient dense addition to sprinkle on top of yogurt or blend into a smoothie!


Kefir

Kefir is a probiotic rich beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries thanks to its gut nourishing capabilities. Made from fermented yogurt, kefir is a powerhouse of good bacteria for your GI tract. These good gut bacteria are critical to proper digestion and nutrient absorption as well as to supporting a healthy immune system. Enjoy kefir as the base for a smoothie bowl along with dark berries, pomegranate seeds, chopped raw nuts & hemp hearts.
