Anti-Inflammatory Fish Chowder

  Why is this soup anti-inflammatory? The Job’s tears look and taste like barley but don’t contain the inflammatory protein gluten.

Quinoa is rich in magnesium that helps to relax blood vessels and thereby to alleviate migraines. Magnesium also may reduce type 2 diabetes by promoting healthy blood sugar control.
