Kale is an anti-inflammatory: Vitamin K, an anti-inflammatory powerhouse, can be found in most dark leafy greens, like kale.
Nuts are anti-inflammatory: Nuts have major anti-inflammatory effects (Harvard Women's Health Watch, 2015). Almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, and peanuts are excellent sources of vitamin E (Traber, 2015). Vitamin E may be shown to reduce inflammation (Traber, 2015)
