Especially at this time of year I eat a lot of frozen berries. They are reasonably priced, even for organic. I always have them in the freezer, even use them in summer when the fresh stuff looks too far gone. Mix them with plain Greek 0% fat yogurt and top with chopped nuts.

Interesting ideas. I have upped my nut intake over the past several years. Still working on more of the berries though.

I am following a specific pain-free food plan from a book--eliminating pork, beef, and lamb while choosing red or blue berries (strawberries, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, red raspberries) and nuts (almonds, pecans).

We do not know how strong we can be until being strong is the only choice we have!

I have been trying to focus on adding more anti-inflammatory foods to my daily eating habits. But coffee is my hang up thing. I have to have 1-2 cups in the morning. I don't drink any more the rest of the day, and adding green tea to the daily fluid intake. Mostly adding 2 fish servings a week, like the salmon, tuna, and other ones that are high in omega-3s. More grains, and less sugary foods, but it is really hard! I have not necessarily omitted a lot from my diet, but cutting down on red meats, and processed foods. Not sure if I can tell much of a difference in my joints, but do feel a bit better.

Anybody give up coffee specifically, I am trying to de-caffinate and it does not seem to be making any difference, should I just stick to my one cup per day?

I just read coffee is an inflammatory, along with sugar, chocolate, nightshade veggies. I ordered and I am drinking ginger tumeric tea. Yesterday, I made ginger pumpkin muffins. I started taking cherry extract pills.....so cherries are also anti inflammatory.

I tried eliminating "nightshade" foods... tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, etc. It was hard because no peppers eliminates most spicy foods, and I eat a lot of things with tomato. It didn't help at all.
I toy with the idea of eliminating gluten to see if I'm sensitive to it.
What anti-inflammatory foods are you talking about? I think of salmon, leafy greens, cranberries, etc. I just read that sugar is inflammatory, sadly.

Right now I am trying to focus on specific things that are inflammatory that I should know better than to have.....coffee and chocolate. I am drinking echinachea tea and I just received my turmeric/ginger tea. I made a blueberry angelfood cake hoping to stay away from chocolate.

I am eating a gluten free diet, which while not officially an anti-inflammatory diet has had that effect on my joints. My hands/wrists are much less swollen and my ankles swell less than they did. I have more energy, my skin looks clearer and I don't have the food cravings for sweets like I used to.

This is not empirical data, but that is what is working for me right now.

Just wanted to see if anyone was following, in any capacity, an anti-inflammatory diet? Do you think it is helping your RA or other health issues? I am beginning a process of adding anti-inflammatory foods to my diet and wanted to hear from others.
