Thai Style Curry is full of healthy, nutritious vegetables along with some protein-packet chickpeas or lentils! The weather can never be too warm for a hearty, healthy Thai style curry!
As a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fibre, chickpeas offer a variety of health benefits, such as improving digestion, aiding weight management and reducing the risk of several diseases. Additionally, chickpeas are high in protein and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets.
Not only are green beans a nice, crunchy, low-calorie food but they also provide many key nutrients needed for a thriving, healthy body. Young, tender green beans are a good source of vitamin C, dietary fibre, folate, vitamin K and silicon (needed for healthy bones, skin, and hair).
