Food: Anti-Inflammatory or Bust

I do appreciate these articles – about what to do and not in terms of taking care of different ailments. Although I am going to share with you the suggested anti-inflammatory list of foods to consider, I do have to warn you – that some of these foods can contribute to bloating, food/spice  allergies or gluten related complications.

So, I found a recipe here, which by changing it up a little to add my own healthy take, I found it tasty and refreshing from the norm.
