#FIGHT INFLAMMATION WITH FOODS THAT HEAL…

#Fight inflammation with foods that heal by checking out this infographic from #cottercrunch on Pinterest.

The list includes walnuts, avocado, pineapple, leafy greens, ginger, salmon, flax and chia seeds, broccoli and carrots, bone broth and collagen, spirulina, turmeric, cherries and berries, coconut oil, cabbage, green tea and matcha powder.

Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. It is a type of bacteria called cyanobacterium, which is often referred to as blue-green algae.

Just like plants, cyanobacteria can produce energy out of sunlight, via the process called photosynthesis. Spirulina was consumed by the Aztecs back in the day, but became popular again when NASA proposed that it could be grown in space and used by astronauts.

A standard daily dose of spirulina is 1-3 grams, but doses of up to 10 grams per day have been used effectively.

A great book/cookbook which is available on Amazon but only available on Kindle is Everything you need to know about Spirulina, The World’s Highest Protein Food explained with delicious recipes included (Spirulina Cookbook Book 1) by Tina Quick. Tina Quick has been vegan since age 19.
