3 Hearty Foods to Add to Your Next Meal

As we all probably know, gut health is extremely important to our overall health and our immune system. If your gut is happy then the rest of your body should be functioning properly and you should feel and look good as well. Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease affecting the skin, so if we work from the inside out while also maintaining healthy skin, then our body will thank us for it! Here are three hearty foods to add to your next soup or home cooked meal to promote gut health and overall wellness:

One staple item that many of you probably already have at home are sweet potatoes! Sweet potatoes are a good source of vitamin C, fiber, and vitamin A. All of which help support a healthy immune system while reducing inflammation as well, which can be especially helpful for those of us with psoriasis. Sweet potatoes are very versatile, they can be enjoyed by themselves, in a soup, or made into fries. Any way you have them, sweet potatoes are delicious and packed with nutrients that our body needs.


The next item on our list is beans! Many beans are anti-inflammatory and high in vitamin K. Another good news about beans is, they are easy to incorporate into many different meals. Whether you are making a big pot of chili or some tacos, beans are a great food to add in to keep inflammation at bay. 

Our final food recommendation is ginger. Ginger is something that you will definitely want to add to your grocery list. It is a powerful antioxidant, and can help get rid of bacteria and help with digestion and even get rid of some pain in people who suffer from arthritis. All of these things are good for those of us with psoriasis. Whether you add ginger to your next chicken recipe or have it with some hot tea - you can be sure that you are getting amazing health benefits and your gut and skin will thank you.
