Whip up a berry smoothie
For the perfect on-the-go arthritis-busting breakfast, grab your blender and throw in blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. Add some ice and a bit of low-fat milk or yogurt, blend until smooth and enjoy! How does this tasty drink help your joints? Blueberries and blackberries are antioxidant powerhouses, high in anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, while raspberries are high in ellagic acid, another known anti-inflammatory which may reduce the risk of some cancers. The polyphenols found in strawberries also act as anti-inflammatories.
