Why Whole Grain Quinoa Flour?

I recently read that gluten product are bad for those who suffer from arthritis.  The report is from NaturalHealthReports.net   All-purpose flour is a member of the refined carbohydrate family and can drive up inflammation because the body processes them into sugar.  By eating less refined carbs this has helped my issues with carpel tunnel and my husband’s mild arthritis in his back that he doesn’t like to talk about ( shhh…..) .

3 Food Choices for Arthritis

  1. An extra virgin olive oil used in this recipe is loaded with heart-healthy fats. Extra virgin olive oil has properties similar to non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs.
  2. Calcium and vitamin D are found in Parmesan Cheese used in this recipe that helps strengthen bones.
  3. Consuming foods from the allium family such as garlic found in this recipe showed fewer signs of early osteoarthritis (OA). Researchers believe the compound diallyl disulfide found in garlic may limit cartilage-damaging enzymes in human cells.
