It is that time of year. So much of the country now ﬁnds itself brushing a morning dusting of snow from the windshield or piling summer clothes into boxes in the back of the closet to make room for sweaters and half-zips.
We wanted to do our part to keep you feeling warm and cozy all winter long, so we pulled out two recipes from our Healthy Eating Guide for Psoriatic Disease. You can get your own free copy of this beautifully photographed guide and recipe booklet where you will ﬁnd information on foods with anti-inﬂammatory properties as well as a number of recipes gathered from the community and reviewed by a registered dietitian.
Remember, no food can cure disease, including psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Before you make any changes to your diet, consult with your health care provider.
