Nourishment Notes

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil contains monounsaturated fats. This type of fat may help to reduce inflammation.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, and kale) are rich in folate and vitamin K. They also contain phytonutrients- plant based compounds that may help lower the risk of cancer.


Walnuts are one of the few plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are important for heart and brain health, as well as reducing inflammation within the body.

Dried Cherries

Cherries are a great source of anthocyanins and quercetin. These antioxidants may help to protect the heart and lower inflammation within the body. Cherries may also help to relieve arthritis pain when consumed regularly.

RA Cooking Tips
