Whether you have just been diagnosed with arthritis, have been living with arthritis for years, or want to start thinking about ways to prevent arthritis, then listen up! The foods you choose to eat can have an enormous impact on your arthritis – even on a day-to-day basis. If you experience bad arthritic flare-ups, it may be, at least in part, due to your diet.
When dieticians speak about the best foods for arthritis sufferers, they generally talk about foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, flaxseed oil, and spinach. These ingredients are great for meal planning, but terrible for desserts! That’s why we’ve put together an easy cookie recipe that substitutes high-fiber almond flour for wheat flour, and is full of walnuts – not only great for anti-inflammation, but also one of the healthiest foods overall!
Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts
2 cups almond meal
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup walnuts
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
¼ cup brown sugar
1 ½ tbsp butter
In a bowl, mix the sugar, nuts, baking soda, and almond meal, and salt. Add in the butter, vanilla, and egg. Mix until blended. Shape dough into ½ inch-thick pieces and place on baking sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, let cool, and enjoy!
