  1. I am craving over this photo. It’s really mouth-watering! I have tried cooking sweet potatoes but not this appetizing. I want to cook it right now because of its potent nutrients. Did you know that an ornamaental plant – cactus is an anti-inflammatory too? Caralluma is worth a try though. Kale is another amazing anti-inflammatory too. In fact, it has 257 high factor ranking which is the average only 50. Great post! I have another recipe to cook.
