                      INFLAMMATION: Douse the Flames

Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury and infection. The body alerts the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as protect itself against viruses and bacteria.

Sometimes inflammation can last longer than necessary, which can lead to chronic inflammation and other health concerns. However, a healthy diet and lifestyle can keep inflammation under control. Here are some simple steps you can take to start healing your body and extinguish the fire naturally:

  • Eat leafy greens. Leafy greens like spinach and kale contain vitamins that help reduce inflammation. In general, the darker the greens, the more healthy nutrients they contain. Avoid processed foods as these are high in unhealthy fats and sugars, which are linked to inflammation.
  • Get plenty of rest. Insufficient sleep can stress your body before you even start your day, which can lead to inflammation. Try getting between seven to nine hours of sleep each night to allow your body ample time to revitalize.
  • Manage stress. Chronic stress is a risk factor and can contribute to the body’s inflammatory responses. Utilize techniques to manage your stress throughout the day such as meditation, exercise, or keeping a stress journal.
  • Get Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with several inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. You can increase your Vitamin D intake by spending more time in the sun or adding fatty fish like tuna and salmon to your diet. Our Fuelings are also a great source of Vitamin D. In fact, the OPTAVIA Essential line contains 50% of the daily value.
  • Listen to your body. Pay attention to your body’s reaction to certain foods. If you have a food intolerance, it can lead to inflammation. Try using a journal or an app that keeps track of food intake and nutrients. Tracking your meals and your reactions can help identify areas for improvement.

Inflammation symptoms can vary and may even be unnoticeable in early stages, but usually include pain, redness, swelling, and fatigue. It’s important to contact your healthcare provider if you experience symptoms such as body pain, skin rashes, or fatigue, as these may be symptoms of chronic inflammation.

Mushroom Cauliflower Risotto


6 Cups cauliflower “rice” (about 2 small heads or 1 large) 
1/3 Cup chopped onion 
2 cups (about 8 ounces) Baby “Bella” Portobello mushrooms, washed and diced 
1 bunch asparagus 
4 tablespoons butter 
6 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped fine 
1-1/2 cups chicken broth 
6 ounces goat cheese 
Salt and pepper, to taste 
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds


Frozen bagged rice cauliflower is fine for this recipe. If using whole cauliflower, separate florets chop in food processor in bursts until it reaches the consistency of rice. Set aside 6 cups. (Any remainder can be frozen.)

Prepare asparagus by cutting through entire bunch with the bands intact: start at the top and cut every 2 inches until the stalks begin to resist the knife. This will avoid the woody ends. Discard remainder.

Heat a large, high-sided skillet and melt two tablespoons of the butter over medium heat.

Add the onion, asparagus and season with salt and pepper. Cook about eight minutes stirring every few minutes.

Add additional butter and mushrooms. Cook another 5 minutes.

Add garlic and stir for 1 minute then add the cauliflower rice and chicken broth.

Cook until broth has been absorbed and reduced and asparagus is tender about 10 more minutes.

Continue stirring and turning to be sure it doesn’t stick or scorch on the bottom of pan.

Remove from heat, stir in goat cheese until melted and the “risotto” has a creamy, blended texture. Stir in pumpkin seeds just before serving.

Makes approximately 8 one-cup servings.

Each one-cup serving: 
2 vegetables 
2 condiments 
1 Healthy Fat 
1 oz of Lean

I love Dana's story and I love that she's living pain free today- no more fibromyalgia flares-

Her story-👇

Dana lost 22 lbs in 8 weeks and broke through her mentality of “working out” to eat! She had struggled with fibromyalgia for years and fought anxiety and depression due to her struggles with the disease. She had always been into fitness but became “STUCK” after trying multiple diet plans with no results! She loved the accountability of our community and her health coach! The convenience of the program was great for her as a busy mom and nurse! She gained her life back with more energy, no more fibromyalgia flares, increased confidence, and so much time freedom!! She has now maintained her healthy weight for 1 1/2 years. GO DANA!
