1. Avocados 


Avocados are considered superfoods because they contain essential vitamins like Vitamins E, and Vitamin K.

As well as containing the important mineral – Potassium. This nutrient helps in reducing inflammation, and strengthening your muscle/nerve function.

These medical conditions might cause back pain, and avocados are here to save the day and your back.

These nutrients can help in managing the back pain resulting from rheumatoid arthritis.

Also, you can try pecans or brazilian nuts.


3. Lean Proteins: Chicken, Fish, Turkey and Beans


Lean protein food products provide the essential amino acids (byproducts of protein) that our body needs for optimal health. As well as being a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.

When we say lean proteins, we don’t mean the fatty and processed meat products but rather the nutrient rich sources of protein.

You can add them to your eating plan once a week: Salmon, fish, turkey, yogurt, beans, and lentils provide the essential nutrients that you need with less health risks.
