Vegan Curry Lentil Stew to Fight Inflammation

Vegan Curry Lentil Stew to Fight Inflammation


What can I say? I don't like tempeh -too much gluten, I don't like processed soy products so there goes tofu, but I do like all naturalplant-based ingredients. I also know the importance of protein in our diets. So as I continue the journey to eating mostly all plant-based I am constantly seeing ways to make a meal with the density and protein of meat but the quality and healing of plant.

This Joule Recipe is key for weight loss, cleansing, and anti-inflammatory. Filled with all the herbs and spices to make it hearty for your tummy.
