Foodie Friday: Coconut Curry Veggies

Happy Friday!! I’m linking up again this week with Annemarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Cassandra from Powered by Bling, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Farrah from Fairyburger to bring you healthy recipes. This week’s theme is “Hot and Spicy”. Please be sure to check out their recipes and feel free to add yours as well.

I’ve tried over the last few weeks to incorporate more vegetables into my diet. Here’s an easy recipe to add some variety to your veggies:

Coconut Curry Veggies

1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
1 zucchini, sliced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp hot madras curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt/pepper to taste

1. Heat coconut oil in a pan
2. Add bell pepper and zucchini, cook for about 5 minutes
3. Add spices, cook until peppers and zucchini begin to soften

Note: I like my vegetables a little crisp. Cook until the veggies reach your desired level of tenderness.

Also, we LOVE hearing from you. If you’d like to follow any members of our link-up, here are the details:

Nailed It! SinfulColors Holiday 2014 Nail Polish Collection

I love having painted nails! Painted nails help me feel cute, feminine and festive. However, painting my nails takes work and I’m not a fan of investing the time only to have the polish chip a day or two later. If I’m going to take the time to paint my nails, I want to enjoy them for at least a couple of days. When I find a polish that’s a great color, long-lasting AND reasonably priced, I feel pretty triumphant. I’m excited to tell you about a nail polish collection that meets all these requirements – SinfulColors Holiday 2014 Nail Polish Collection. Continue reading
