A Simple One-Day Anti-Inflammatory Meal Plan for MSers

You know that eating anti-inflammatory foods will help you live MS symptom free, but maybe you don't know where to start. This simple full-day anti-inflammatory meal plan will help you get started eating the right foods to help combat your MS symptoms.

Breakfast: Veggie Omelet

When it comes to breakfast, you want something filling and simple. Omelets fit the bill perfectly since eggs cook quickly without a lot of fuss.

Instead of filling your omelet with meat and cheese, pack it with vegetables (spinach, onion, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, etc.) and herbs (cilantro, rosemary, and basil) to fight inflammation. You can even cook enough veggies for multiple omelets at once and freeze in individual serving size containers to toss in your eggs for faster cooking.

Lunch: Homemade Tomato Soup

This is another recipe that you can make ahead so that you always have it on hand. You could also make it the night before for dinner and then have leftovers for lunch. The best part? It can be served hot or cold.

Serve it warm for dinner and cold the next day for a refreshing lunch. You could also pair this with an anti-inflammatory salad if you'd like a little more variety.

Afternoon Snack - Guacamole with Veggies

Avocadoes are great inflammation fighters, and they are delicious when mashed up into homemade guacamole. Plus, the healthy fats will keep you satisfied during your afternoon slump - especially if you'll be eating dinner late.

Guacamole is incredibly easy to make and very forgiving. Feel free to play with the recipe a little bit until you perfect it to your tastes. Most people eat guacamole with tortilla chips, but for extra inflammation-fighting power, dip carrot sticks instead.

Dinner - Salmon and Broccolini

Healthy fats are great for fighting inflammation, and salmon is full of them. Broccolini (like most green vegetables) has strong inflammation-fighting properties as well. Together, they fight even harder - and they taste delicious.

This meal does require some active prep time in the kitchen, but it only takes one pan and less than 25 minutes from start to finish. You'll have a healthy dinner and hardly any clean-up when you are finished.

Evening Snack - Avocado Mint Ice Cream

I know what you're thinking: "Avocado in ice cream? No way!" But trust me, this is delicious. The fat of the avocado allows you to make a creamy ice cream without dairy or an ice cream maker. The mint extract covers up the subtle flavor of the avocado, and if you're serving it to guests, they'll never imagine that the ice cream is green because it is good for them!

This recipe contains coconut butter (or coconut oil) along with the avocadoes, so you get a double dose of inflammation-fighting power. Plus, it's so sweet and creamy, you'll think you bought it at your favorite creamery.
