Heart disease, diabetes, skin irritation, aches and pains—all of these things may be caused by out-of-control inflammation. While stress, lack of exercise and genetics can all cause chronic inflammation, a steady diet of sugars and processed food can do the same. Replace some of the worst culprits in your diet with their healthier—and tasty!—counterparts.
Eat Walnuts and Berries Instead of Cereal
While whole-grain cereals may seem like a good choice, they are still high in carbohydrates and can cause inflammatory blood sugar spikes. If you want to start your morning with something sweet and crunchy, eat some walnuts and berries. Walnuts are full of healthy, anti-inflammatory fats while the berries are full of natural sugars.
