Chicken Pumpkin Curry

I hope you all had a fun, relaxing, and warm Thanksgiving break! We did!

Mondays tend to be difficult for settling back in and getting back into routine. It’s definitely much harder after a long weekend!

I wanted to share this recipe I made few weeks ago. This fall, I’ve been into fall flavors and seasonal cooking more than any ever in my life. I think it’s because this is the first fall I’ve been ‘seriously’ blogging and getting inspired by all the food and nutrition lovers I follow.

I got a free fresh whole pumpkin from a fall festival. While I could have gone with the first thought: roast or boil, puree, and bake pumpkin bread, I was craving something different. This was the winning recipe: pumpkin chicken curry.

Changes made to the recipe and comments:

  • It could take more spices--we like strong flavors! I would add more coriander, cumin, and turmeric next time I make this, or maybe curry powder. We also like our curries hot. A dash of red hot peppers would have been great.
  • I used light coconut milk instead of regular coconut milk. I saw it for the first time on the shelve in the grocery store and decided it to try. I don’t recommend light coconut milk. It made the curry too watered down and it lost the rich creaminess of coconut. I felt like I wanted to eat more of the curry to get the coconut taste–talk about mindless eating! Plus, we’re only adding half a cup for the whole recipe, and that won’t make that much difference on the nutrition content per serving. This is a time when it’s better to enjoy the real thing–and get satisfied!
  • While the orange color of the pumpkins was very appealing, after plating the meal, it felt like it needed an accent color. Green or red, I thought. So, I topped my plate with raisins. You might want to add them to the curry ahead of time so they absorb some of the flavors.

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
