If you're looking for a cheap, tasty and healthy vegan recipe, you have to try this! It's brimming with flavour thanks to all the spices, it is rich and creamy and can be made more hearty if you add some basmati rice or naan bread (or both!)

Since starting a more plant based lifestyle, curries have become my saviour when I don't know what to eat. They're so easy to make and are made solely of whole foods which your body will love and appreciate you for. I always feel so good afterwards - satisfied, satiated and not overly full. My mental health always feels amazing and if you don't know, that is the whole inspiration for my whole foods lifestyle and the reason I want to share this blog with you all.

❤ A jar of Chickpeas
 1 Red Onion
❤  1 clove of Garlic
❤ 1 small piece of Ginger
❤ 1 tin of Coconut Milk
❤ Salt & pepper
❤ Extra veggies if you wish (I used some leftover courgette I had in the fridge)
❤ Oil (see previous post on 'clean' and 'dirty' oils)

Spices - note that you can definitely adjust this depending on what you have. I used:
- 1 tablespoon of Curry powder
- 1 tablespoon of Curry powder
- 1 teaspoon of chilli powder (more if you prefer more spice or have a milder chilli powder)
- 1 tablespoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1.) Start by cooking the sliced red onion, the crushed garlic and the grated ginger in a pan in some oil for about 3 minutes.
2.) After this, add in the courgette or any other veggies you are using including the Chickpeas. 
3.) Straight after, add all your spices in and let the ingredients coat in all of the yummy spices.
3.) After a couple of minutes, add in the coconut milk and let it simmer for as long as you want.

Remember: the longer it simmers, the better it will taste!


- Chickpeas are high in protein and are great for gut health. We know gut health is so important for our mental health.

- Red onions can help with blood sugars. As discussed in my post when my blood sugars are stable, my anxiety is unlikely to come on out of nowhere.

- Ginger is an anti-inflammatory food and can really help settle your stomach. When my stomach is settled, my mental health is at its best.

- Spices are great sources of anti-inflammatory foods. Cinnamon also lowers blood sugar levels. Turmeric contains Curcumin,a  substance with powerful anti-inflammatory effects.

My strategy going forward for the blog is recipes on Sundays and nutrition/health/wellness advice or information, will be posted on Wednesdays. 
Health and wellness is such a complex area so I hope you can learn a lot of new things from my blog!! I have healthy picnic ideas, food combining, how to eat in season (with a guest!), how to reduce inflammation, amongst many other things.

Wishing you health and happiness!
