Juice and enjoy
Juicing is a great way to get some of your 5- 10 a day in in one hit. If you are not overly keen on vegetables this is quite a good way to disguise them.
Don't make radical changes to your diet if you are suffering with chronic pain as this will only increase the overwhelm.
If there are any foods you suspect don't agree with you then it may well be worth eliminating them for a while. Gluten, wheat and dairy are often the usual suspects.
It may be that whilst your body is trying to recover you reduce or eliminate them altogether and can introduce them once you are better.
However, whether you need to eliminate foods, or not, adding in goodness in the form of a juice will always be good for you.
You can combine any fruit and vegetables but certain foods may help combat chronic pain and inflammation as they are rich in antioxidents and polyphenols.
Here is a list you may like to try:
carrots, apples, cucumber, grapes, lemons, kale, spinach, pineapple, oranges, blueberries or limes.
