Top Quick & Easy Anti-Inflammatory Salad Kits

Check out these anti-inflammatory salad kits!

They are a convenient option to incorporate more vegetables and variety into your diet.

The kits below contain nutrients that reduce chronic inflammation and support healthy aging!

What is Inflammation?

Inflammation is the body’s response to physical stress or injury.

It can appear as pain, swelling, redness, or bruising.

While acute inflammation is a normal and healthy response for the body, chronic inflammation is not. 

Chronic Inflammation

While acute inflammation is normal, chronic inflammation is not.

Processed foods alter the bacteria that live in our gut.  This in turn triggers an altered immune response. 

Over time, this different response leads to chronic inflammation, a contributor to chronic disease.

Diabetes, heart disease, and dementia have been linked to chronic inflammation.

Chronic Inflammation Fighters

The foods below are allies in chronic disease prevention. It is no surprise that fruits and vegetables make this list!

Look for these ingredients when purchasing an anti-inflammatory salad kit.

Or add them to your homemade salads!

  • Leafy greens (spinach, kale, romaine, cabbage)
  • Fruits (strawberries, blueberries, oranges, cherries)
  • Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines)
  • Vegetables (tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, mushrooms, avocados)
  • Nuts and seeds (almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
