Recipe: Healthy Green Curry Bowl

Healthy_Green_Curry_Bowl

By Victoria Fortnum. When the temperature is below freezing, all I can think about eating is something warm and comforting. However, to avoid falling into a winter weight gain slump, I also want something healthy and satisfying. My Healthy Green Curry Bowl satisfies both needs. It's Thai, it's healthy and it's delicious.

This recipe serves four people, so enjoy it with friends or save some for leftovers to enjoy throughout the week.
