Thai Curry made with Ground Turkey Recipe-Whole30

Over the weekend, I attended the most beautiful wedding for my nephew and his bride!  I got to spend some time with my husband’s side of the family, and my parents!  It’s always tons of fun to spend time with those I love!  We got to chatting about this new “diet” called Whole 30–now they don’t want you to say diet, because it’s really a way of life.   I got to spend some time discussing the food requirements with my brother and sister-in-law who lost a substantial amount of weight on whole 30, and just raved about how they felt and the energy they had while doing it.  When I’m trying to eat healthy and drop a few pounds, whole 30 is pretty dang close to how I choose to eat anyway…I usually avoid sugars, high carbs, and processed foods, and I attempt to introduce healthy substitutes for myself.  I had dinner all planned out, and I decided to do a spin on my usual recipe for curry, for one that was Whole 30 approved.  It was delicious!  I know you will enjoy this.

If you have never used Yellow Curry Paste,  you can find it in the Asian section of your grocery store!  Yellow curry paste is a medley of spices.  It has garlic, lemongrass, salt, shallot, dried red chili, coriander seed, lime peel, curry, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, cardoon and nutmeg! WOW!  What a punch of flavors!  You also get a subtle sweetness and fall flavoring to the curry by using the “raw apple cider.” I hope that you enjoy this video…it’s my first recipe video on youtube for my blog!  Let me know how you feel about it.  This is a healthy way to maintain your weight during the holiday season!  Also, I have a few more healthy recipes coming your way this month.   Enjoy!
