Roasted Salmon Curry

Fresh ingredients full of flavor make my heart (and my gut) happy.  Curry is a combination of nutrient dense spices that have anti-inflammatory properties that support recovery, ease pain, protect against heart disease and even have cancer preventing properties.  It can be spicy or mild and delicious with a variety of other ingredients.  

You can purchase it already mixed (without additives or sugar), so you aren't spending 30 minutes just combining 30 different spices. My favorite brand is Thai and True, it is available in a variety of flavors, stored in oil and lemon juice and makes getting dinner on the table fast and simple.  You can pick it up on Amazon, click here to get it.
