Almond Butter Curry

 

What nutrients are we talking about?

Almonds are a source of important monounsaturated fats, antioxidant vitamin E, as well as minerals potassium and magnesium. AND, did you know…Statistics show that some chronic illnesses occur less frequently in India and South East Asian countries due to the pharmacological action of Curcuma Longa (turmeric), a frequently used spice*. The yellow tinge to your fingers (and possibly a white t-shirt or two) after cooking with turmeric may be annoying, but it’s actually the specific component that gives turmeric it’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-coagulant, anti-bacterial and antiviral properties (just to name a few)!
