The Wellness Mindset ~ Recipes: 10 Anti-Inflammatory Recipes Even Picky Eaters will Love

“Vegetables are food for my food.” Is this phrase familiar to you? You want to eat healthy, but maybe you live with someone who is a picky eater and refuses to eat anything “healthy”. Maybe, you’re the one that is the picky eater. You know heathy eating is the way to go, but you hate vegetables or anything that resembles healthy food. It’s hard enough to convince ourselves to eat healthy, but how do we convince the picky eaters to eat healthy? The trick is to make the healthy food not look healthy!

On Tuesday, I posted an article highlighting 10 anti-inflammatory foods to add to your diet.

Here are 10 anti-inflammatory foods to include in your daily diet

  1. green leafy vegetables
  2. blueberries
  3. broccoli
  4. turmeric
  5. green-tea
  6. beets
  7. pineapple
  8. nuts (especially walnuts)
  9. Wild caught salmon
  10. Bone broth

For this list, I’ve scoured the internet to find recipes using the 10 anti-inflammatory foods listed above. There are 10 recipes, one for each food. I tried to find recipes that picky eaters would consider fun or tasty. I hope you enjoy!

Closing thoughts:

Whether you try a recipe from this list, or just use it to inspire your kitchen creativity, I hope you found something to help you eat healthy. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring. As the old saying goes ” You are what you eat”. With a bit of ingenuity and creativity, eating healthy can be fun!

  1. Tamara…You’ve probably heard the saying: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” However, just maybe your delicious “looking” recipe suggestions might just get a picky eater at least trying to eat a bit healthier. I’m thankful that my beloved mother encouraged me to eat my fruit and veggies, fish and different soups and broths when I was still ‘knee high to a duck.’ Having recently conquered eating b sprouts a variety of ways, I’m now ready to revisit turnips. I never could get those down. Maybe raw would work. 🙂
