5. Beets

Beets have become more popular recently not only because they are good for you but because they taste delicious when roasted. This vegetable is noted for containing betalain pigments which promote anti-inflammation, serve as an antioxidant, and promote chemo preventive issues. Spread out your beets on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and roast at 425 degrees for about 30 minutes for a unique treat.

 

6. Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes are effective at reducing inflammation that is caused by depression. The skins contain lycopene so adding them to your salad or eating slices with fresh mozzarella and a balsamic vinegar will give you an easy way to help you fight against inflammation. If you prefer to consume your tomatoes cooked, you can enjoy even more lycopene if you create a sauce out of them sautéing in some extra virgin olive oil. The olive oil will enhance the taste as well as assist the lycopene, which is fat soluble, to be safely absorbed. A good tomato sauce can be made up ahead of time and frozen so you can enjoy a pasta dish any time you want.

 

7. Pineapple

Besides being a powerful agent that tenderizes meat, pineapple is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been proven to eliminate symptoms that generate inflammation.
