Avo-Berry Smoothie Bowls

Start your day with a fruity breakfast. This nutritious bowl provides more than half your daily fiber – enough to help keep you full until lunchtime. It's also full of nutrients that ease inflammation. 

Avocado: this fruit may negate the effects of eating inflammatory foods. People who ate a hamburger with avocado didn't show the same inflammatory response as those who ate it without.

Tart Cherry Juice: in a study of runners, those who drank antioxidant-rich tart cherry juice the days leading up to and after a marathon saw reduced inflammation and recovered their strength faster than those who did not.

Spinach: dark leafy greens such as spinach are high in vitamin K, which may help stop inflammation.

Berries: packed with phenolic compounds, berries can trigger your body's anti-inflammatory response.

Chia Seeds: these fiber-rich seeds have been associated with a drop in inflammatory markers.
