Fibromyalgia is a painful, chronic condition that’s characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain that’s often accompanied with fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Unfortunately there isn’t a miracle diet for people with fibromyalgia; however, the foods that we eat and our levels of activity have a significant impact on our overall health. Eating a healthy, nutritious diet and maintaining a healthy weight boost your immune system and place less stress on the body. Give your body a boost with these anti-inflammatory fibromyalgia recipes:
