I have been doing a lot of reading about foods and inflammation.

First, I'd like to note the quote by Hippocrates, "let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food".  Great quote.  Also happens to be the header quote on EVERY BLOG BY EVERY SELF RESPECTING NUTRITIONIST AND AMATEUR HOUR NUTRITION BLOGGER (like myself) EVER.  Ok, just so you know, I am nothing if not self aware.  Maybe.

Phew, ok, that is out of the way, we can get down to business.

I am going to be posting anti-inflammatory information-- my research and thoughts, and recipes.  I hope it can be of interest to my friends and family, and I'd be most honored if you ever wanted to try a recipe or a week of anti-inflammatory eating, or a month of anti-inflammatory eating. 

I can tell you, it can be very helpful in quickly SHEDDING pounds (my boyfriend lost 15lbs in about 6 weeks!) or restoring energy, good moods, and wellness (after BEGRUDGINGLY eliminating gluten/wheat at the advice of a real nutritionist, I discovered that my gut does not like gluten.  As bummed as I am that I can't have doughnut vault or pequod's pizza whenever I want them, I can tell I am HAPPIER and healthier.)  Interestingly, I mainly notice the "happier" part, even more than the "healthier."

Did you know that serotonin, our body's main "happy chemical" is most prevalent in our GUTS?  And if our GUTS ARE HURTING, so likely is our serotonin, and therefore our moods?  This is MUCH MORE MOTIVATING to me than the GI distress I now experience after consuming gluten-- I want to be happy!!

Okay... happy anti-inflammatory eating...  LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE!
