Okay, I know it’s been a while, but I’ve been so busy with the holiday season. Anyway, to start off my 2018, I’m doing a spiritual fast in lieu of doing new years resolutions. This fast requires me to eliminate all of the following: Meat, dairy products, oil, sugar, sweeteners, bread, pasta, white rice, coffee or juice. Basically, I’ll only be eating fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains, and water. I know that sounds intimidating, and trust me, I was scared out of my mind and didn’t think I could actually do this. But 2018 is a year for new challenges, right? So I’m going to do it! My two biggest tools to complete this fast are: praying and preparing. The diet aspect is a huge part of the fast, but the spiritual aspect is much more important to me. Anyway, this post isn’t to talk about my fast (I’ll make a post about it once I complete it). This post is to tell you that this plant based thing may not be so bad after all. I looked up some recipes, went and did some shopping at the farmers market, and I ended up making the best vegetable curry I’ve ever tasted! I honestly would take the vegetables over chicken, it was that good. This meal was quite simple to make and extremely flavorful. This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite Youtubers, Jenne’, from Sweet Potato Soul. I used some of her recipe but then added a few ingredients of my own to give it a little twist. See below for the recipe and let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more of my plant based meals along the way.
