CHICKPEA AND SPINACH CURRY... on steroids 💪🏽. It's fair to say that both Justin and I haven't been feeling 100% lately, needed to get back into our routine, and really needed to fuel up well.
Well, how about a chickpea and spinach (from frozen) curry which has onions, garlic, tomatoes, bok choi, yellow peppers, fresh ginger, lime juice, red peppers, and avocado served on whole grain rice? The way we both felt having woken up to that fuel was just incredible.
This may look like a mountain of food, but the way in which it's digested is going to be so slow, and will burn gradually. You're getting an awful lot of fibre from all that veg, fat and water soluble vitamins, which can be consumed through the fat in the avocados and water in plants.
Then the iron in the spinach can be very well absorbed and used from the Vitamin C provided from the lime juice and tomatoes.
Chickpeas provide a complete protein with the combination of brown rice that helps you train and build these 💪🏽 over and over again.
I could go on forever about the nutrition that's packed into this meal, but I'll just leave you with this.
A whole foods plant based diet is always going to be an easier way to shed fat and lose weight sustainably, because you're not forcing your body to adapt to something it's not meant to be going through. Glucose is your bodies favourite fuel, and with a plant based diet, you provide your body with it in abundance, with such nutritional density that your energy levels are highly elevated, so much of the time.
It's no wonder that people who switch over, can't seem to imagine going back, because they always say just how good they feel, that they wonder why they didn't do it in the first place 💪🏽.
