What will you be celebrating in two years? Unless you have the Psychic Friends Network on speed dial, you probably won’t know. I personally would rather not know what the future has for me.

Borrowing from the list “Arthritis Remedies: 10 Foods That Help and Hurt” on the Lifescript website, we can come up with a recipe that can help ease arthritis pain and make a happy colon.

Remember, as stated in our previous salmon recipe, try to avoid farm-raised salmon because of increased levels of toxins, antibiotics and ecological impacts.
