Eating an anti-inflammation diet
There is always some level of inflammation going on in our bodies. It’s a defence mechanism.
So you’ll never quite have that down to zero, and don’t want to, because we constantly will be exposed to things that must be dealt with. But it’s good for you when that defence activity stays at low levels because it simply means a less stressed body.
Research shows inflammation levels can be lowered by avoiding certain foods or reducing intake of them:
- Trans Fats
- Seed Oil
- Wheat/ Gluten/ Grain
- Lectins/ Oxalates

So, what can one eat then? Everything else, of course. A “ketogenic diet” is a good way to reduce inflammation. We know it won’t kill you – rather the opposite.
Here’s a sample ketogenic meal:
That’s a consisting of:
- mushroom cream soup
- a salad consisting of white cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes, onions, linseed sprouts, bell peppers, and green beans
- a main dish consisting of cod gratin in a capers and leek cream sauce with extra thick, crunchy bacon and lingonberries.
Not the joyless pile of watery things you expected, is it? Healthy can be pretty naughty.
