Yummy eats after surgery/ After Surgery Caregivers

Anytime that you undergo a surgery, your body must take a while to restore and heal. The drain on energy after surgery is serious, requiring time, depending on how invasive the surgery was. Luckily, there are things that can be done for healing. A top contender is diet, and a great diet for post surgery recovery is the anti inflammatory diet. 

How to follow the anti-inflammatory diet:

Unhealthy fats promote inflammation."Most people eating a Western diet high in processed food or fast food consume a lot of omega-6 fats – and not enough of the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats – and it is this imbalance between the two that promotes inflammation [in the body]."

Omega-6 fats are found in corn, safflower, sunflower, peanut and soybean oils. 
Have you ever wondered why trans fat is unhealthy?A fat that is highly inflammatory in trans fat. This fat is found in processed or fast foods, especially those that are fried.

Refined carbohydrates are pro-inflammatory. These foods elevate insulin and glucose levels, which raise levels of pro-inflammatory messengers.

Food allergies or sensitivities can play a role in inflammation. Many people are intolerant to the proteins in wheat and dairy, and this can initiate an inflammatory cascade that starts in the gut but can have far-reaching [systemic] effects.
