Paleo Curry Chicken

Some of the benefits of curry include helping with joint inflammation, reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and cancer, and helping burn fat cells, and easing digestion (unless you make it too spicy—woo!). Wow, I don’t know about you, but I’m sold!

I talk about this all the time, but when you look at all the health benefits of items on the paleo food list, you can really see the importance of eating a wide variety of veggies, fruits, spices and herbs. Mother Nature provided us with so many ways to nourish ourselves, and I’m sure grateful!
