Taco Bowl 

When you have pain and inflammation like I do you learn what to eat and what to stay away from. I have learned to manage my pain by eating healthy .

With Bone problems I have tried many things but this way of eating is great 

It’s easy to eat healthy and use lots of spices to help that inflammation.
