Looking for foods to help banish joint pain and inflammation? Here is some advice from Clinical Nutritionist Suzie Sawyer from www.feelaliveuk.com
Lean protein is key for building healthy connective tissue. Inadequate intakes may lead to loss of muscle mass and diminished strength. Fish and plant-based proteins including beans and pulses are great options. For inspiration try this tasty tuna, fennel, and bean salad https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/tuna-fennel-bean-salad
Foods to avoid: Some arthritis sufferers report that omitting certain foods from their diet helps alleviate their symptoms. Foods commonly cited include oranges, tomatoes and peppers as well as dairy foods and wheat. Consider keeping a food diary to see what works for you. Don’t omit major food groups from your diet without seeking the advice of your GP or dietician first.
