Here is a site that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about individual foods:

www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c20h1.html

Note the square with the triangle. Just under it is the anti-inflammatory value of the food. Sweet potatoes are off the chart in this respect. On the right you can click to see what other foods have high anti-inflammatory values. And that's just the beginning.

If you go to the "cook with this" tab lower down, it takes you to the website Epicurious which is known to be a good site and brings up wonderful recipies, many of which I've tried.

I'm happy to have found something that's working for me. No soda, no sugar, and almost no wheat or other grains except for oats. I thought this would be unbearable, but I'm enjoying food more, cooking more, and feeling better. I can't believe I waited this long to do what I know a lot of you have been doing for years.

Hope everyone is having a nice spring day.

P.S. I've also quit dying my hair since I've heard for years that hair dye can be bad for lupus patients. So I'm enjoying watching the different shades of gray take over this birds nest.
