Studies have shown that orange and red vegetables (which contain rich amounts of beta-cryptoxanthin) can help risk inflammation. They include carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, and red peppers. Dark green leafy vegetables are another good choice. They are full of antioxidants. They include brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale, spinach, and bok choy.

If you are not a fan of most vegetables remember that onions and shallots, garlic, and leeks are also part of the family. You can add these to a huge variety of recipes. Not only do they spice up the meal, but they can help reduce your inflammation.
