Who doesn’t love an easy curry that’s ever so tasty and satisfying with the simplicity to whip up in a hurry. Curry in a hurry right?!
Yellow curry is nutritious for many reasons and has potentially many benefits. Curry is called a medicinal superfood and is packed with healthy spices. Tumeric being one of them. This is what gives the curry the yellow colour. Curcumin is an active component In tumeric that blocks inflammation. Inflammation is the cause for many illnesses, diseases, cancers and other health problems throughout the body.
Curry contains a number of spices such as tumeric, coriander, cardimon and sweet basil. Some benefits of consuming this deliciously healthy superfood are:
- Helps fight against cancers such as breast, prostate, skin & colon.
- prevents and treats Alzheimer’s disease
- bone regrowth, connectivity and repair
- helps heart health, therefore reducing risk of heart disease, heart attacks, etc.
- great for digestion & gas
- And helps fight bacteria, just to name a few.
When using curry, remember the more you add, the hotter in flavour it becomes. Feel free to adjust to your liking. Since my children aren’t into really hot spicy foods, before I add curry, I separate theirs into another pan and add their flavours. Easy, one meal, easy to accomodate the entire family.
