6 Anti-Inflammatory Drinks to Start Your Morning

Raise a glass to good-for-you beverages that may help lower levels of inflammation in your body.

The other milk

Move over almond milk. Flax milk is a great nondairy option if you're looking for an anti-inflammatory boost, says Staci Small, a registered dietitian based in Indiana. The milk is made with flax oil, which is rich in an omega-3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). People who get more ALAs into their diet may be less likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease, because flax may help reduce inflammatory markers that damage arteries, found a Canadian research review.

Reasons you're not losing that belly fat

Excess belly fat is a common concern, but the repercussions go well beyond how comfortable you may or may not feel in a certain pair of jeans. In fact, carrying this extra weight around your waist can be a precursor to a vast array of health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and various types of cancers. And while you may be doing your best to shed those pesky midriff pounds, there are seven key factors that are undermining your efforts to win the "no belly" prize.

Health problems that can be caused by belly fat

Most people would love to shed a few pounds, especially around the midsection. It doesn't have to be swimsuit season for us to want that six-pack, but belly fat goes way beyond appearance. Fat around our midsections means serious health consequences. Because it's closer to our organs, it's more dangerous than carrying fat in other areas of the body, such as the hips or legs.

Deborah Lippmann's Best At-Home Manicure Tip

Unlike some of the kids in my elementary school art class who were blessed with real skills, coloring in the lines was never one of my strong suits. Even today, I’ll admit that I’m still perfectly awful at it. But, hey, is it really necessary that I stay within the lines if I’m coloring every commercial break while I absentmindedly devour Keeping Up With The Kardashians reruns? I didn’t think so.
Nails, on the other hand, are a completely different story. Unlike coloring books, which you can mess up as much as you’d like and no one would ever judge you for your shading skills (or lack thereof), painting your nails requires surgeon-like precision — even if you skip the nail art. Given my history with coloring, you can only imagine what my nails — and cuticles! — regularly look like after a fresh coat of polish. Toss an oxblood-colored polish into the mix, and it basically looks like I committed a crime.
