Fighting Inflammation With a Plant Based Diet
Whether we recognize it or not, we all experience the side effects of inflammation. It often manifests itself in a variety of ways and while some are obvious, others might be ongoing, less apparent issues. From aggressive symptoms like those of IBS or arthritis, to more common ailments like acne, gas, or acid reflux, inflammation has a monumental impact on our health and well-being.
The cells in our body eat just like we do. They eliminate waste too. Each cell is a mini me. When our immune system is not operating efficiently, mostly from stress, our cells are not supported in eliminating waste properly. This causes the cellular waste to back up in our system which leads to acidosis. This acidic state manifests as inflammatory symptoms in places like our gut, joints, muscles and skin. While we can’t influence our genetic predisposition to some of these larger issues, the food that we eat has the potential to ease the effects of inflammation.
How We Can Lessen The Impact of Inflammation
Choosing to incorporate alkaline foods like fruits and vegetables into your diet as much as possible, helps your body flush out toxins and acids by supporting healthy kidney function. Choosing fruits and veggies that are grown in healthy soil by people you know is best. Choosing organic produce is next best!
Chances are, if you struggle with inflammation of any kind, you have heard the buzz around anti-inflammatory diets and cleanses. Learning about which organic ingredients you can add to your diet to reduce inflammation is an essential component of pursuing a healthier you. Consider adding turmeric and ginger to your diet, both of which have anti-inflammatory properties. All of our signature, Jubilee soups are packed with anti-inflammatory nutrients, but our Healing Greens and Herbal Broth are two customer favorites that treat the effects of inflammation.
Medicinal herbs and superfoods are vegetables that have the strength to support our immune system as it works hard to keep our body clean and in balance. All of our soups and stews are made with a unique Herbal Broth created farm fresh herbs and superfoods like lemongrass, basil, oregano, rosemary, turmeric, ginger and shiitake.
Never underestimate the impact that the foods we eat can have on our health and well-being. Each day we are presented with decisions to make about what we eat. If you struggle with inflammation of any kind, that decision is even more vital to your emotional, mental and physical well-being. Seek out opportunities to consume not only vegetables and herbs that can fight inflammation, but locally grown, beyond organic products that are supporting your overall optimal health.
We are a generation of busy people. We juggle work, relationships, caring for our families and providing for our children. The stress meter can be high and we often find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by the many responsibilities we have. In order to reduce inflammation, eliminating stress is the top priority. Meal prepping is an essential component of pursuing stress-free eating, but often times, there aren’t enough hours in the day to prepare weekly meals for you and your family. When you open a Jubilee Jar, you can heat and eat for a simple, nourishing meal or use it as the foundation for a buildable meal for the whole family. We envision a world where more meals are both deeply nourishing and simple to prepare.
