5 Anti-inflammatory Breakfasts To Slow Aging

5 Anti-inflammatory Breakfasts To Slow Aging

Aug 10, 2022LivGood Team

Five tasty breakfast ideas that could do double duty to reduce chronic inflammation and slow some of the signs or symptoms of aging.

Yogurt Parfait

Have some fun and pour your yogurt into a mason jar or other larger clear food vessel and add in alternating layers of walnuts (a source of anti-inflammatory good-for-you omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids), reduced sugar granola, and berries like blueberries or strawberries. Blueberries contain anthocyanin, while strawberries contain ellagic acid, which are both compounds that have been studied for their protective anti-inflammatory effects related to insulin resistance and cancer, respectively.

Loaded Scrambled Eggs

Take the opportunity with scrambled eggs to mix in chopped spinach, tomatoes, and onions for an extra nutrition boost.

Avocado Toast

Top a sourdough bread slice with pieces of avocado, a slice of tomato, and top with flaxseeds to deliver extra goodness to this breakfast concept. Avocados, along with other healthy fats like olive oil, nuts, and seeds, seem to be connected to reduced inflammation, which could play a role in slowing aging.

Nut Butter Fruit Wrap

Smother a thin layer of peanut butter or other nut butter onto a sourdough bread , then add slices of fruit (banana does great here as does cinnamon apples or pears) to harness "anti-aging" powers on your plate via whole grains, nuts, and fruit. The foods in this breakfast idea align well with the Mediterranean diet, which has been investigated for its contribution to protecting and delaying age-related cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease.


An ideal smoothie includes a cup each of dairy or non-dairy milk, fruit, and vegetables, along with one serving of protein from protein powder or nuts/seeds. An incredible fruit to add to your smoothie which doesn't receive nearly enough press are cranberries. Cranberries contain a flavonoid called quercetin that seems to exude anti-inflammatory effects, which can combat aging by controlling chronic disease risk.
