Salmon with Pineapple and Fresh Ginger



Certain foods can help reduce allergy symptoms by reducing inflammation and boosting your immune system. If the allergy season has you suffering with a stuffy, runny, or congested nose, itchy and watery eyes, scratchy throat, sneezing, sniffling, coughing and overall fatigue, try this recipe.

  • Pineapple is high in Vitamin C which helps to optimize your immune system.
  • Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, an anti-inflammatory which can help with allergy symptoms.
  • Ginger is known to reduce inflammation.
  • Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can help us breathe easier and helps to reduce inflammatory reactions.
