AARP-The magazine just ran a story about ingredients that help fight pain. I created recipes for each of the ingredients. And would like to share one with you here –

According to the AARP story, “A recent Thai study found that the spice common in many Indian foods fights the pain of rheumatoid arthritis as effectively as ibuprofen.”

Here is a link to the story – other ingredients include grapes, ginger, soy,  cherries, coffee and salmon. Do click on the story to check out all the fun recipes I created.
