While autoimmune diseases are common these days, they’re also commonly misunderstood. Their symptoms can sometimes masquerade as other conditions, making them harder to diagnose. And while treating autoimmunity with immune-suppressing drugs is sometimes helpful and necessary, often these treatments merely address the symptoms, not the root cause of autoimmunity. Because the truth is, autoimmunity can be managed and even reversed (yes!) by using nutrition and other lifestyle changes.
I love putting greens (spinach, kale, swiss chard..they all work) in a frittata for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This one is packed with antioxidant-rich spinach, sweet onions and sundried tomatoes, and a little feta to give it that extra pizzazz. Hit up your local farmers market and give it a try this weekend!
