I began looking at the anti-inflammatory diet about 2 years ago. After doing a meditation on health with the help of Deepak Choprah and Oprah Winfrey, I set my intention to be healthy and eat well, and meditated on it at least once a week. In a few months time I found myself cutting back on sugar and dairy without even trying.
I feel so much better – I have more energy and need less sleep. If you had told me 2 years ago that I would prefer my coffee with no sugar in it, I would not have believed you!
Now, all I have to do is replace one of my mugs of coffee with herbal tea that is non- acidic, That is proving to be a little more difficult. But at least I cut back to 3 mugs a day.
Dr. Weil has a great chart showing the Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid on his web-site. It is a lot different from the one we were taught in school in the 1950’s!
