It's no wonder- inflammatory ingredients surround us everywhere we go. From pumpkin-spice lattes with processed dairy to the myriad holiday sweets at our holiday parties, inflammation can be hard to avoid. For people with auto-immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis, this can make an already hard-to-manage condition worse. For people looking to manage inflammation during the holiday season, awareness is the order of the day!
Take a look at the foods we eat during christmas: delicious, but often full of inflammatory ingredients. From sugar to unhealthy fats, it is always prudent to take a look at what we are putting into our holiday dishes. But cooking delicious food doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your health. If avoiding inflammatory ingredients is a health priority for you, a quick search on the internet can help you come up with alternatives and substitutes for your favorite recipes that include non-inflammatory ingredients in place of inflammatory ones!
