A Week We Can All Celebrate
9th– 15th October is National Curry Week! Not only is this national favourite delicious and versatile, it also offers a whole host of health benefits. Of course we are not referring to the fried rice and oily naan bread, but the spices used in many popular dishes.
If you are using a standard curry powder when creating your meal, it is likely to contain spices such as cinnamon, turmeric, nutmeg, coriander, chilli, cumin and ginger. With these spices come a vast array of health benefits, including:
- Infection fighting
- Improved digestion
- Detoxified liver
- Boosted metabolism
- Strengthened bones
- Anti aging
- Increased pain relief
- Increased heart health
- Reduced risk of mental health issues
