Pumpkin Coconut Curry
Eating pumpkin during the fall months can be cozy and comforting, but it’s also good for the heart: it’s full of fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C.
Usually accompanied with rice and made of meat and vegetables in a spiced sauce, curry is an excellent cold-weather dish. Curry can aid and promote efficient food digestion, so consider this #LEVOmade curry your go-to healthy dish this fall and winter.
