Today we bring you a hot, delicious anti-inflammatory breakfast from James Schend of Healthline.
Why not take a break from the cereal and go for porridge with a fun twist?! Rather than oatmeal, use the super-grain, quinoa for the base of your porridge. You don’t have to reserve quinoa for savory dishes like salads and stir-frys! Sweeten it up with dried (or fresh) tart cherries. They contain anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant that helps significantly to cut inflammation.
