A ground turkey curry dish that is healthy, low-sugar, gluten-free, Paleo and full of easy to find Indian spices.
And so it begins. Our quest to ultimate healthiness.
Have you ever noticed how one day you find yourself being okay just eating a bite or two of a dessert, and then a few days later you are 3 helpings in?
That’s my relationship with sugar. A love/hate, all or nothing type of relationship.
I love it when it is in my mouth, but man do I feel lousy once I am finished eating.
For the last year, I have struggled with headaches/migraines that occur up to 3-4 times a week.
I have tried multiple preventive medications, and am seeing a neurologist, a TMD specialist, a chiropractor and a doctor who specializes in nutritional counseling. My case is anything but straightforward.
I know I definitely have some postural misalignments due to years of crouching over textbooks, but deep down I also think something is not quite right in my diet.
In an effort to tackle this beast head on, a “yeast-free”, Candida diet has become my way of eating over the past few weeks. Is it easy? Heck no. Have I cheated? Absolutely. Do I think it’s working?! The jury is still out.
This ground turkey curry is just what the doctor order. Full of healthy ground turkey and finished with some easy to find Indian spices.
Serve it with a side of grilled or steamed veggies and you have yourself a healthy and filling dinner!
Thanks to our newfound way of eating, the next few weeks will be full of healthier, low sugar, gluten free dishes.
After a few weeks of this experimental eating regimen, I will slowly begin to add in natural sugars here and there to see how my body responds.
Can you tell I’m a bit of a science nerd who likes experiments?!
But for now, I hope you enjoy this tasty, healthy, ground turkey curry dish!
