Vegan curry

Is curry healthy for you?

To put it simply, yes, curries can be healthy for you.

Depending on the recipe, chef, family or origin of the curry in question they can contain a specially curated blend of spices and ingredients, many of which of their own carry great health benefits. Common spices include ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin, curry leaves, chilli peppers and mustard seeds. 

How healthy is curry?

A combination of these spices in a varied and balanced diet can promote: 

  • Good heart health
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Boost digestive health
  • Lower blood sugars 
  • And prevent cell damage caused by oxidative stress

Often where their downfall can be with volumes of oil used to fry certain components and their salt levels, but this doesn’t have to be the case.
