Beach ready... bikini ready... summer body... These phrases are bandied about, making us feel like we need to spring into action and start our days with a fruit salad & end them with a Couch-to-5K run. But what we should really focus on is balance.
If you're aiming to strike a bit more balance in the kitchen ~ healthier meals during the week, to offset weekend indulgence of wine & crisps ~ our spice blends bring lots of flavour to the table without the heaviness often associated with Indian food. Take a look at our blog for making our curries even healthier ~ but be sure to treat yourself to a creamy curry and a warm naan now and then.
Our powders don't contain any sugar or salt - just 100% premium, natural spices.
If you are trying to make your Spice Pots creation even healthier, here are our top cooking tips:
- A vegetarian curry is always going to have fewer calories, so try eating less meat a couple of times a week. Even just try to reduce the amount of meat, and top up with extra vegetables and/or pulses.
- Coconut milk is healthy but is quite calorific, so you can swap it out for stock instead. We recommend using 250ml/300ml of stock in place of a 400ml tin of coconut milk. You can also use some yoghurt to add creaminess, instead of coconut milk or cream.
- Use an oil spray to reduce the oil you need to fry the onions at the start of cooking
- Cut out the naan bread and serve with brown rice instead of white rice.
