Swedish Midsummer food – 3 anti-inflammatory recipes

Midsummer is the perfect time to eat anti-inflammatory foods. It is easier to eat both locally grown and enjoy the summer flavors. See three new recipes for the Midsummer table below!

Anti-inflammatory midsummer food

Holiday food is often considered unhealthy, but it is easy to adapt traditional Midsummer food to more anti-inflammatory food.

  • Boiled and chilled new potatoes, contain plenty of prebiotic fiber that feeds the good bacteria in the intestinal flora.
  • Salmon and herring contain plenty of the healthy omega-3 fats, which are needed to keep inflammation in the body down.
  • Asparagus contains inulin, a prebiotic fiber variety, that the good gut bacteria like very much. In addition, inulin has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity, reduce metabolic syndrome and counteract the development of type 2 diabetes.
  • Strawberries, like many other berries, contain the antioxidant anthocyanin which is said to have an anti-inflammatory effect.


3 anti-inflammatory recipes for Swedish Midsummer

The classic dishes eaten during midsummer can easily be adapted to become more anti-inflammatory. For example, the creamy potato salad can be replaced with a fresher variant with caper vinaigrette.

The classic midsummer dessert – fresh strawberries with ice cream or whipped cream, can be combined with a creamy avocado and banana cream instead. This combination will make both your taste buds and intestinal flora cheer! Also, try Stig’s tarragon créme as an accompaniment to salmon or other fish. All these recipes can be found below!
