Nourishment Notes


Eggs are an excellent source of lean protein, helpful for the growth of new and healthy cells. They also contain lutein that may promote eye health and choline, important for memory.


Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids. This type of fat is important for lowering bad cholesterol in your blood which can lower the risk of heart disease. This is important because those with RA have a higher risk of developing heart disease.

RA Cooking Tips

  • Hard-Boiled Eggs

    Purchase pre-cooked and pre-peeled hard-boiled eggs.

  • Guacamole

    Simply mix store-bought guacamole with egg yolks to create the deviled egg filling.

  • Cookie Scoop

    Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the filling into the egg whites.
