Inflammation is a naturally occurring process in our body. In simple terms, inflammation happens when the body needs to heal itself – whether from injury, germs, or even a little paper cut!

Inflammation can become problematic when it decides to target its own tissues. Whole-body, low level inflammation can be brought on by a number of factors including chronic stress, low activity levels, genetics, processed foods and environmental toxins.

The good news is, is that so many delicious foods in our diet can help reduce unwanted inflammation. This recipe includes lots of anti-inflammatory foods and is the perfect lunch or side to any meal. And it has a delicious almond butter dressing that you will love!!
