Everyone needs a good curry recipe. The first time I tried curry, I was hooked. I have been obsessed with turmeric lately, and have been looking for ways to get it into my body whenever possible.
A big bowl of savory, nutrient dense soup seems to do the trick.
Curry can be extremely nourishing to your body and make you feel amazing from the inside out
- Nourishing broth:Bone broth and homemade stocks are incredibly healing to the body. They regulate digestion, are amazing for hair, skin, and nails, and significantly boost your immune system. Read more about the incredible benefits of bone broth here.
- Coconut milk:Full of medium chain fatty acids that fuel your brain, balance your hormones, promote energy, and keep you full for long periods of time.
- Detoxifying vegetables:Cauliflower, garlic, onions, and spinach all are bursting with nutrients that will give you energy, prevent disease, promote healthy digestion, and clear skin.
- Healing spices: Turmeric is one of the most healing herbs you can put into your body. It prevents disease, detoxifies your body, and is one of the most powerful substances to reduce inflammation in your body. Inflammation = disease, skin problems, anxiety, depression, and joint pain.
This is a dish to load the veggies in! Whatever you have on hand works great. I typically use a head of broccoli, 4 full carrots, 1 large onion, green and red bell pepper, tons of kale and cauliflower rice.
You can make this go faster by purchasing 2 bags of mixed frozen veggies in without the chopping involved!
You can add sweet potatoes/butternut squash to make it more warming and grounding in the winter. I typically leave them out in the summer months.
I love how you can make this dish with different protein options. Chicken is the traditional version, but I like it with beef/buffalo sometimes as well! If you do not want meat, try adding some soaked black beans!

Dr Jockers Comments:
I am a huge fan of bone broth and when it is combined with other good fats like grass-fed butter/ghee and super herbs like turmeric and garlic.
This is a fantastic low-carb, nutrient dense recipe that is full of superfoods and cancer fighting phytonutrients. Kale and cauliflower have sulfuraphane, isothiocynates and indole-3-carbonyl which are powerful chemo protective nutrients.
Bone broth contains high levels of proline, glycine, gelatin and collagen which help to rebuild the intestinal membrane (preventing and repairing leaky gut). They also help to rebuild joints, reducing risk of injuries and joint degenerative processes. They help improve complexion by strengthening the connective tissue in the skin and improving the shine of the hair.
This is one of the best winter time recipes you can possibly find! I keep a crock-pot full of bone broth soups and stews going throughout the winter! Enjoy!
