What Makes These Crockpot Recipes Anti-Inflammatory
I’m not a nutritionist or dietitian, so I put together this list of recipes based on the basics of an anti-inflammatory diet found in this article, Ways to Make The Most of an Anti- Inflammatory Diet and Food List.
I love that all of these recipes are naturally:
- loaded with plant-based fiber
- packed with plant-power from fruits and veggies
- rich in healthy fats
- flavored with herbs and spices like turmeric
- free of trans fats and refined sugar
As always, if you’re following a specific diet, be sure to check with your doctor or nutritionist to make sure these recipes align with your specific diet.
No matter how you choose to nourish your body, I hope you’ll find something delicious on this list to try out this season.
