Flavored instant oatmeal

Instant oatmeal, a longtime favorite, is unfortunately also one of those sneaky inflammatory foods. 

But if you go for a flavored kind that has extra sugars in it, you might be adding to your inflammation.


Muffins and donuts are popular because they are convenient, tasty, and can be eaten on the go. 

While muffins may seem like a good option, they may not be the best for those who are seeking to limit inflammation in the body, depending on the preparation.

Flavored lattes

Coffee experts warn that the sort of cream and sugar used in your morning brew can contribute to chronic inflammation.

Consuming modest volumes of black coffee can help lower inflammatory indicators, but adding sweet syrups can have the opposite impact.
