7 Anti Inflammatory Food Staples Every Pantry Should Have

Anti Inflammatory Diet, Anti Inflammation Diet, Dr. Chilton, Anti Inflammatory Diet SuccessLife can be pretty hectic sometimes, and after a long day, it can be stressful to come home hungry without a clue in the world what to eat. At Gene Smart, we’re here to help! Here are 7 anti inflammatory food staples every pantry should have so that you can come home to a healthy, hearty, and satisfying meal!

  1. Brown Rice

    • Brown rice makes an excellent staple for any kitchen because it’s filled with fiber and goes with practically anything! Try it sautéed with your favorite veggies and lean protein, or with scrambled eggs in a breakfast burrito. Haven’t made the switch from white rice to brown rice yet? Try it – you’ll love the nutty taste!
  2. Your Favorite Legumes

    • Black beans, chickpeas, and lentils are all delicious and filling additions to any meal. Filled with fiber, these additions will keep you feeling fuller for longer. Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are delicious as a side or snack sautéed with olive oil and a bit of garlic. Try lentils in the slow cooker, or a Zesty Black Bean Salad.
  3. Salmon

    • Salmon is one of the best things you can add to your diet, and thankfully, there are many ways to get it! We encourage you to try whatever works best for you. Heading to the grocery store this morning? Try some fresh salmon. Cooking later in the week? Try frozen or canned. Click here for more delicious high omega-3 fish.
  4. Whole Grain Bread

    • We love whole grain bread, and there are so many ways to eat it! Other than the classic sandwich, it can be used in so many ways. Try it toasted with a tablespoon of peanut butter and sliced apples for a tasty snack. Tired of morning toast? Try a slice toasted and topped with scrambled eggs and salsa to add a little kick to your morning.
  5. Canned Tuna

    • Canned tuna is a classic and simple staple in many homes. Classic tuna salad can be delicious – but be careful, it can also be fattening! Check out our tasty Low Fat Tuna Salad recipe here. Looking for a warm dish? Add canned tuna to whole wheat pasta with red bell peppers, tomatoes, olives, and artichoke hearts for a tasty Mediterranean dish.
  6. Frozen Berries

    • Power up with polyphenols! Frozen berries are a great way to make sure you get some polyphenols in your anti inflammatory diet every day. Try adding a handful to your morning cereal (hot or cold) or start the day with a berry smoothie, blended with ice, orange juice, and Greek yogurt.
  7. Omega-3 Supplements

    • Many find it difficult to obtain enough omega-3 through diet alone, which is why we created an affordable and high quality omega-3 supplement. Look for an omega-3 supplement that has at least 1,000mg of combined EPA & DHA, and always take your omega-3 supplement with food. (We recommend taking Omega-3 with Borage Oil for an even stronger anti inflammatory combination!)
