Foods to decrease inflammation

Inflammation is a natural and normal process. In fact, we need inflammation to live. When foreign substances enter the body, white blood cells are released to help fight those substances. If we did not have this mechanism we would get seriously ill from any type of invader such as  plant pollen, cuts, splinters, brief infections, physical training etc. This is called acute inflammation; it lasts only a few days, only happens when there is a foreign invader in the body and your body has immediate symptoms.

What you Missed this week

Hi All, Not only is it Friday, but it’s also October! I think many people would say that October is their favorite month. Its finally cooling down, warm beverages, colorful trees, pumpkin stuff and of course boots and scarves. Well its supposed to rain again all weekend, but this time it will probably be even more rain! I really like rain, but now that I have chickens I get so worried about them and their little legs.

As usual here is a re-cap of what you missed this week on Life To Table
