Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2022

Every year the cold winter weather doesn’t only put frost on the grass, it also brings an increased chance of getting sick. And that’s even before our new friend coronavirus came along!

In recent years, people have been putting in the effort to ensure their immune system is as healthy as possible to fight off any illness that comes their way. Even though we are hopefully coming out of the global pandemic, keeping our immune system in fighting shape should still be a top priority. Studies have shown that a weak immune system increases levels of inflammation in the body, linking to a myriad of physical and mental illnesses.

We know our readers love hacks to get the most out of their vegetables after the success of our article explaining the healthiest way to cook broccoli. So here are some ways in which you can boost the anti-inflammatory powers in your veggies even further.

Toss them with spices

The classic anti-inflammatory spice is turmeric. This super-spice is most commonly used in India to help in treating all sorts of ailments, from colds, to Alzheimer’s, and liver disease. Additionally, turmeric will make your produce delicious! Adding spices also makes a great addition to vegetables before blending into soups.

Check out this article on additional anti-inflammatory herbs and spices that can assist you with this effort.

Add with bone broth

Bone broth can stimulate the growth of new collagen, protect joints, and reduce inflammation, so substituting it for all your broth needs is a great way to pack in more nutrients. Try freezing it in ice cube trays for easy addition to any recipe.

Enjoy anti-inflammatory fats

Cooking oils such as avocado or olive have anti-inflammatory properties, and inflammation-fighting nuts and seeds make a great texture addition to any soup, salad, or veggie dish.
