Anti-Inflammatory Tropical Turmeric Smoothie Bowls

It’s nearly Summer (can you believe it?!), so it’s a great time of year to check back in with your New Years resolutions and see how you’re progressing. For most of us, getting healthy is always pretty high on the list, but for me, being healthy is more of a lifestyle rather than something to tick off your list of goals. One way I’m trying to get even healthier this year is to introduce more anti-inflammatory foods into my diet. Today I’ll talk about why inflammation is such an issue for our health, and also show you a recipe for tropical turmeric smoothie bowls that are both anti-inflammatory and dee-lish.

What Is Inflammation?
So what is inflammation, and why is it bad? I first heard about inflammation from my acupuncturist, shortly before getting pregnant with Honor. I learned that while we need the inflammatory response to help us fight illness and injury, sometimes our bodies produce a faulty inflammatory response that can cause chronic disease. Many scientists and people in the medical field consider inflammation to be the culprit of many ailments and even plays a factor in autoimmune diseases. So in recent years, many in the wellness community are embracing anti-inflammatory diets or specific foods that can help to decrease this faulty response and promote overall health. It’s believed that an anti-inflammatory diet can help many conditions like psoriasis (which I have), rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, IBS, lupus, and more.

Foods To Avoid
In order to decrease inflammation in the body, many doctors and dietitians recommend avoiding or cutting down on the following foods:
-Processed meats
-Sugar
-White grains like pasta and rice
-Gluten
-Trans fats
-Soybean and vegetable oil
-Excess alcohol
-Excess carbs

Anti-Inflammatory Foods
On the flipside, many healthy foods and spices are recommended to decrease inflammation, and can be easily introduced into your diet today:
-Turmeric
-Cinnamon
-Green tea
-Black pepper
-Apple cider vinegar
-Whole grains
-Honey
-Dark leafy greens
-Blueberries
-Beans and lentils

  • How fascinating is this: the part of our brain controlling memory and emotion, is directly linked to the nerve at the back of our nose. Meaning, certain smells have the ability to completely change our mood and outlook on life. Here's a deeper dive into how you can instantly improve your mood with the strike of a match or a spritz of perfume - link in bio ⠀⠀

  • I wish there was a magic wand to 1) not feel so tired, and 2) get rid of the dark circles under my eyes! Agreed? A double latte helps with the former, and omg - @no7usa Dark Spot Correcting Booster Serum has helped enormously with the latter. Remember I talked about this brand a few months back? I've used it since I was a teen in the UK and I'm thrilled I can easily buy it in the US. Grab yours @Walgreens and tell me how you like it! #No7Laboratories #No7USA #ad
  • One of my best secret shopping spots? @Ebayfashion! You wouldn’t believe the designer gems I’ve found on there- especially designer handbags. Their authenticate program means you can shop luxury jewelry, watches and bags with full confidence! http://liketk.it/2BTs3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #eBaystyle #HappeningoneBay #ad
  • Did you know that in the US, a woman still makes only 80% of what her male counterpart does? In the UK last year, men made nearly 12% more than women for the same jobs. The wage gap is real, and still an issue. So, what can YOU do right now at work to be taken more seriously, and help close this gap?

  • Who's ready for a new Summer thriller to read?? #TheNightBefore by @wendywalkerauthor is one of the few books that can keep me up past 10pm these days (any mums out there relate?), in fact I can't put it down whenever I get a free minute to read. It's finally on sale now - check the link in my stories to purchase, and let's start a Summer book club. But whatever you do, do NOT spoil the end for me just yet! #InPartnershipwithWenderWalker
  • Inflammation is a buzzword lately. It’s been linked to more serious illnesses than I can count, weight-gain, bad skin - and now studies have linked it to depression. People are now eating anti-inflammatory foods in LA like locusts! So much so, there’s currently a celery ‘shortage’, and the price of celery juice (another massive trend) has risen by 200%. Gisele and Tom Brady famously follow an anti-inflammatory diet, designed by their chef. So what IS inflammation, and how do we reverse it? Click the link in my bio for some⠀⠀

  • One bonus of the cold (‘cold’) weather in LA... I can wear my new vinyl trousers
  • I always remember reading an interview with a movie star, who called her stretch marks, her ‘tiger stripes’. I’ve had mine since I was 18, and always felt very self-conscious. Reading that interview flicked a switch for me- and totally changed my perspective. Since then, I’ve worked with women of ALL shapes, ages and backgrounds, to help them feel more confident in their skin: sometimes when I’m filming a makeover show, sometimes if I’m writing an article, or working with a charity like Step Up. Whether that’s how to walk into an interview, how to prep a resumé, what to wear, or how to look after your body- in particular- your skin. A few years ago, I wrote a book (Front Roe), about it all. Then I had a baby, and my relationship with my body changed again, for the better. I was in absolute AWE at what the female body can achieve. Listen, every single one of us has body hang ups, cellulite, scars, shapes we don’t always love. But what it took me time to slowly realize, is that our bodies are freaking hard-working, clever, miraculous machines. They are! So I’ve written about some of the tips I’ve used in the past to feel more body confident (and ps, the science behind it all, is fascinating). Click the link in my bio to read. And please as always, share some body confidence journeys of your own below... @Olay #OlaySun #FaceAnything #ad
