Is your refrigerator teeming with less-than-healthy foods? If so, make a clean sweep and replace them with wholesome anti-inflammatory choices:

Get rid of:
Creamers with unhealthy fats, artificial additives or sugars, regular margarines or spreads that contain “partially hydrogenated oil,” yogurt with added sugar, sugary fruit or artificial sweeteners, fruit juices and American or processed cheeses including “cheese food.”

Replace with:
Organic, hormone-free whole milk; organic unsweetened soy, almond, rice or oat beverages (look for products that do not contain the thickening agent carrageenan, and that are calcium-fortified); plain, full-fat organic yogurt (add your own organically grown fruit); and small amounts of natural, hard cheeses.
