What are the best anti-inflammatory keto-friendly foods?

  • Turmeric
  • Ginger root
  • Salmon
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Walnuts
  • Avoid unhealthy fats-use only MCT oil, coconut oil, olive oil, organic ghee from grass fed cows, grass fed butter, palm oil from sustainable sources
  • Green leafy vegetables-kale, spinach, chard, mustard greens, romaine lettuce and other leafy greens are extremely rich in anti-inflammatory polyphenols.  These vegetables are also rich in antioxidants that repair and fend off the damage of free radicals, such as beta carotene, and vitamins C, E and K.

    Leafy greens also provide some magnesium, which helps prevent chronic inflammation.
