I love to create own recipes and share them with you but I also love sharing other wonderful recipes. I found one from my friend Kathrin @k_a_t_h_r_i_n on Instagram which I like to share with you. You find more information about this really kind person here: Kathrin
Kathrin use a lot of different vegetables, herbs and spices in this Curry to provide her body with all benefical elements of fodd such as vitamins and Minerals.
Broccolie for example contains a high amount of potassium. This mineral helps maintain a healthy nervous system and optimal brain function. Furthermore, it promotes regular muscle growth. The calcium and vitamin K is very important for your bone health and the beta-carotene is good for your immune System.
You find also two more very healthy ingredients especially when you living as a vegetarian. Coconut milk and chickpeas. Chickpeas are a good source of protein and they can can boost your energy because of their high iron content. Due to high fiber content, chickpeas are excellent for weight loss. Chickpeas can really keep you full longer and controlling the Appetite.
I love to integrate coconut in my diet because coconut is full of health benefits for you. It contains a high level of omega 3, 6 and 9 fats along with high amounts of amino acids. For people who want to avoid dairy, are lactose intolerant, or have dairy allergies coconut is also very helpful.
Herbs and spices are also used in this delicious curry from Kathrin. A really good decision to integrate them because they bring also a lots of benefits you don’t get from the other vegetables.
