Make Chicken Curry Tonight [Recipe Inside]
Instead of ordering out, boost your culinary chops with this savory and nutritious meal. Chicken breasts swim in a delicious sauce composed of spices, vegetables, and additional hearty flavors. Chicken curry is a great way to combine the need of being healthy with the desire of tasty food. Although multiple ingredients in curry are sources of vitamins A and D, black pepper and turmeric are the ones that can really replenish your health: Black pepper provides this meal with the spiciness it needs - and prevents inflammation. In the November 2013 issue of "Cell Biochemistry and Biophysics," a study on rats found that piperine (a key ingredient in black pepper) helps regulate blood pressure and reduces inflammation, which would otherwise contribute to cardiovascular disease. Livestrong.com has noted that black pepper is also low in sodium, (less than 1 percent of your daily allowance to be exact), so you can use it as a replacement for salt. Turmeric is usually the main ingredient of curry powder, but it's used for more than just flavoring foods. The aromatic powder detoxifies the liver, stops new growth in tumors, and is even used as a healing paste for cuts and wounds.
