Power Pineapple Coconut Yogurt Recipe

For the New Year, I wanted to come up with a New Year’s resolution that I would be able to actually sustain past the first week of the year.  I decided instead of creating a very specific resolution, I would create a broad one that would help me enjoy each success.  I am really trying hard to be more conscious about the foods that I eat and how they may affect my lupus.

I am interested in learning more about the AIP diet, but right now, it is just too restrictive for me to sustain.  I decided that I was going to begin by simply choosing better options.  Because if we are going to be completely honest, I am really bad with food choices and I love to eat.  Two issues that are really creating more issues the older I get.

A big change I knew I had to make was actually eating something for breakfast.  I have always been one of those people that skip breakfast most days and I know that I need to become better at breakfasting.

The only issue is that I suffer from nausea many mornings and literally can not stomach the idea of eating food so early in the day.  I was not interested in starting with a heavy or greasy breakfast of any sort, so I figured I need to create something light that could pack a punch and keep me feeling as good as possible in the mornings.  I hate mornings….with a passion.

I created an amazingly delicious breakfast ‘treat’ that I like to call Power Yogurt.  The great thing about this power yogurt is that it can be modified to create many variations to really fulfill any craving you may be having.

 

toasted pineapple coconut chia & flaxseed maple

 

I started with a half cup of Chobani greek yogurtGreek yogurt is awesome in the fact that it is packed with protein, low in sugar, and a great base for many flavors.

I like to use:

I  then added one scoop of Think Thin Probiotic and Protein powder in Madagascar Vanilla.  This stuff is absolutely amazing!  While it has a little of that signature protein powder taste when mixed into a beverage, it is pretty tame in this recipe as the other flavorful ingredients help to cut the protein taste.

Then comes one of my favorite and super simple additions, this delicious Toasted Pineapple and Coconut Chia/Flax Seed mix from McCormicks.  I have never seen these until recently and I am already obsessed.  It literally was love at first taste.  I really thought it would be some weird fake flavored crunch, but this stuff is seriously amazingly delicious!  There are also other flavors like Blueberry Ginger and Banana Cocoa.  These breakfast toppers really give a ‘granola’ like addition to this power yogurt.

 


Next I take a half of teaspoon of Maple Grove Farm’s  Organic Maple Syrup and drizzle on top.

 


To finish this dish off, I sometimes add fresh berries as well.

Pineapple Yogurt Maple Power Yogurt

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt (I used plain)
  • 1 scoop of probiotic/protein powder (I used vanilla.)
  • 1 tbsp of McCormick's Breakfast Topper (I used Toasted Coconut and Pineapple with Chia and Flax)
  • 1 tbsp of organic maple syrup
  1. Mix 1 scoop of probiotic powder into a 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt.  Top with 1 tbsp of coconut and pineapple breakfast toppers.  Drizzle 1 tbsp of organic maple syrup over the top.  Enjoy!




The Best Anti-Inflammatory Food

 

Inflammation is a protective response by the body against the foreign agents and microorganisms. The body releases certain chemicals and cells that engulf the offending agent.  It heals the body from injuries and infections. The protective response elicited by the body through the WBCs and several chemicals in response to foreign particles is known as inflammation. The body is protected from damaging agents like bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms in this way.  

For a person dealing with an autoimmune disease like lupus, reducing inflammation within the body is something that can be vital in managing lupus disease activity and lupus symptoms.  If you currently do not monitor your lupus diet, you may want to consider incorporating anti-inflammatory foods into your diet and see if it helps with inflammation and symptoms like joint pain and swelling.

While there are many options out there for an anti-inflammatory diet, (popular ones include the AIP diet) it is recommended that you make a lifestyle change as opposed to a short term diet that you may not be able to sustain for long term. Even making small changes can help you feel a lot better!

 

What is the importance of anti-inflammatory diet?

If your inflammation markers are good, why do you need to take anti-inflammatory diet?

Here is the answer; Inflammation is a silent enemy as it is responsible for inner destruction and process of aging. Inflammation for a limited period is good but chronic inflammation is something to worry about. Lupus causes widespread inflammation throughout the body and there are foods that are known to increase inflammation.  This increased inflammation could cause you to flare or increase your symptoms like swelling and joint pain.

There are numerous factors that can trigger chronic inflammation in the body and speed up the process of again and tissue destruction. Stress can also cause chronic inflammation and damage the tissues.  Stress has been known to be a major trigger in lupus flares.

Sometimes, we are not even aware of the inflammatory process going inside our body.  When considering ways to reduce inflammation and lupus flares, you may want to take a look at your current diet.  If you are looking for a way to easily monitor body inflammation, you may want to consider  an anti-inflammatory diet. An anti-inflammatory diet can suppress the ongoing damaging inflammatory processes while keeping our inner tissues healthy and intact.

 

What does an anti-inflammatory diet include?

The anti-inflammatory diet emphasizes natural food with antioxidants that guard the body. It discourages the use of processed, refined and synthetic eatables. You can eat a lot of fruits, vegetables as they are full of healthy nutrients like vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants.  It also pays stress on the intake of omega-3 fatty acids as it helps to reduce inflammation.

In fact, it is not a typical diet plan but a permanent lifestyle that you should be able to sustain.  Harvard Health recommends an anti-inflammatory diet plan like the Mediterranean diet, which is high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fish, and healthy oils.

Many studies have shown the fact that inflammation can ensure even in the presence of foreign particles of microorganisms like viruses and bacteria. Tension, sedentary lifestyle, and lack of exercise can also cause the release of certain inflammatory substances that can cause inflammation.

It is an established fact that ulcers are caused by prolonged stress by means of inflammation. As anti-inflammatory diets are not restrictive and are easy to take and make so one should not take chance and should start consuming these healthy foods.

Best Anti-inflammatory Foods:

After learning some about the importance of an inflammatory diet, let’s move to our main point, i.e. the anti-inflammatory foods.  It is important to note that anti-inflammatory foods are plentiful and there are a few changes you may need to make, but following an anti-inflammation diet does not have to be extremely restrictive.  You just need to have the right information and increase the amount of the right foods.  Start being more conscious about the food choices you are making and be sure to increase anti-inflammatory foods to help combat inflammation within the body.

  2. Trout

  3. Sardines

Anti-inflammatory diet tips:

Here are some helpful tips to incorporating an anti-inflammatory diet into your lifestyle.

  • Cook with canola oil or olive oil.

  • Snack on nuts, seeds and whole fruits instead of candy and cookies.

  • Try oatmeal with walnuts and fresh berries for breakfast.

  • Try eating less red meat and more fish.

  • Avoid added sugars.

  • Make it habit to increase your vegetable intake.  Juicing can help.

  • Try to avoid deep-fried foods.

  • Cut out processed foods.

 

In a nutshell, the anti-inflammatory diet should be considered as an essential part of healthy living.  Even for people are not suffering from an inflammatory disease like lupus can benefit from an anti-inflammatory diet.  It is important to realize this is a lifestyle change more than a fad diet that most people are used to.  It is important to nourish your body from the inside out and incorporating an anti-inflammation diet can help you do that.  

 





Can Green Tea Reduce Inflammation in Lupus?

So, Can Green Tea Reduce Inflammation in Lupus?

 

If you suffer from Lupus, then you know what it means to have chronic, widespread inflammation throughout your body.  One of the most important things we hear (or should be hearing) from our rheumatologists is the importance of reducing inflammation in the body.  When we have flares, this is our body reacting to the inflammation caused by our lupus.  Steroids are one of the most commonly prescribed medicines to reduce inflammation and symptoms in lupus patients.  Many lupus patients have a love win relationship with steroids.  It is incredibly smart to speak with your rheumatologist about pursuing other ways to reduce inflammation.  Today we are going to talk about the amazing effects of green tea and how they can reduce lupus symptoms that may be caused by increased inflammation.

 

Regular consumption of tea and plants rich in polyphenols are known for various health-promoting functions such as diuretic, anticarcinogenic, immunity-support, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory effects. Different relevant investigations have revealed green tea polyphenols as potent antioxidants [,] to play important roles in inactivation of several signaling pathways involved in inflammation.– Source

 

Can green tea reduce inflammation in lupus

 

What is Green Tea?

 

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from unfermented leaves, pale in color,  and slightly bitter in flavor.  It is mainly produced in China and Japan.   Green tea comes from the same plant that black tea is made from, Camellia sinensis, but green tea and black tea are prepared differently.   Fresh leaves are steamed and used to produce green tea.  Green tea has been used for thousands of years in areas of China and Japan for various medicinal purposes.  Green tea is most commonly known for it’s health and weight loss aiding properties.  You have probably seen a variety of diets and detoxes that use green tea to help people lose weight.  Most people recognize the weigh loss effects of green tea, but many have not heard about the anti-inflammatory effect green tea can have on the body.  As a lupus patient, anti-inflammatory agents are often sought out and added to the diet to prevent inflammation being caused by lupus.  This article is intended to show how simply incorporating green tea in to your diet, may help alleviate inflammation that is associated with lupus.

While most people simply drink green tea as a beverage, it has also found many other ways to be incorporated for health benefits.  There are many forms of green tea sold in capsules and tablets, and most recently in the topical form (applied directly on the skin) in makeup, lotions, and other cosmetics.

How Can Green Tea Reduce Inflammation?

 

Green tea may also be useful in inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis. Research suggests that green tea may help arthritis by reducing inflammation and slowing the breakdown of cartilage.

 

“Leaves from Camellia Sinensis shrub form three types of teas including black tea, green tea and oolong tea, depending on their processing techniques. Green tea is prepared by steaming and drying the tealeaves (20% of total production). Tea extracts are commonly used as beverages, food additives or integrated into cosmetic and pharmaceutical formulations []. Tea extracts are rich in vitamins (B and C), minerals, polyphenols, caffeic acid, fertaric acid, tannins and volatiles. These polyphenols have been investigated for various biological and physiological activities.”- Source

This shows good promise that taking green tea supplements can help reduce inflammatory effects of Lupus on the body.

 

“It has been reported that one of the features of several non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs, is their ability to stabilize (prevent denaturation) heat-treated albumin at the physiological pH (pH: 6.2 – 6.5).[] Therefore, from the results of the present preliminary study, it can be concluded that both green and black tea leaves possess a marked anti-inflammatory effect against the denaturation of protein in vitro. Previous researchers have reported the anti-inflammatory activity of both green tea and black tea.[] “- Source

While both black and green tea have shown anti inflammatory effects, green tea seems to have a better response in regards to black tea.  If you have been thinking about adding green tea to your lupus diet, it seems that there would not be much issues in doing so.  It is always important to speak with your rheumatologist before beginning any physical activity, herbal regiment, or adding anything new in to your body.  If you have been asking yourself if green tea can reduce inflammation in lupus, we hope that this article has helped show you it has to potential to do so!

Lupus Diet: Organic Mamma Chia Beverage Review

 

organic momma chia beverage review

 

Like many of you, I really like to find healthy drinks that are not only good for me, but that also taste good.  That becomes even harder when you have texture issues with food and drinks.  I have tried aloe drinks in the past that were just too slimy and too chunky for me to even attempt to drink.  I tried…but usually failed.

When I first saw this gorgeous bottle of Organic Mamma Chia: Blackberry Hibiscus drink, I was not sure what to think.  I mean, it is packaged beautifully and has a really inviting deep-purple color.  But…there were actual chia seeds just kind of floating within the drink.  I was wary to try this drink, but the amount of nutrients in this drink were amazing and I had to try it.

Once I got past the initial texture shock, I was actually surprised.  I did not mind the slight thickness to the beverage and actually could not believe how amazing it tasted.  I like blackberry flavored things, but I have never tried a drink with hibiscus.  I have to admit it was uniquely refreshing.   The fact that it was mixed with blackberry really helped to create an exotic and organic masterpiece of a drink.  I highly recommend trying a bottle of Organic Mamma Chia’s Blackberry Hibiscus drink.

 

Ingredients in Organic Mamma Chia Beverage in Blackberry Hibiscus

 

This list of ingredients can be found on the back of your label:

Ingredients:

  • Hydrated Chia Seeds (purified water, chia seeds)
  • Agave
  • Lemon Juice
  • Hibiscus Extract
  • Natural Flavors
  • Blackberry juice concentrate
  • fruit and vegetable juice for color
  • citric acid

 

 

This beverage has been Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.

 

This chia infused drink provides an amazing 2500mg of Omega-3s.   Each serving of Organic Mamma Chia provides you with 4 grams of plant protein!  Each serving also contains 24% of your daily fiber.  As if all of those benefits are not enough, but each serving of Organic Mamma Chia provides you with an ample 10% of your daily value of calcium.

 

Organic Mamma Chia can be found at most retail grocery stores like Wal-mart.  You can also order off of Amazon in bulk.
