This grain-free bowl uses cauliflower instead of rice. It's topped with a simple, flavorful curry loaded with low-starch vegetables and candida-fighting herbs and spices. Adjust the curry powder to taste and add cayenne pepper for extra spiciness. Store-bought rotisserie chicken saves time, but you can also use tofu, shrimp, or any white fish.

Chicken Vindaloo

Chicken Vindaloo

Vindaloo, a classic spicy curry, is originally a Portuguese dish of spiced pork; it takes its name from the Portuguese vinha d'alhos, vinha for wine, and alho for garlic.

Turmeric, this bright-orange curry spice contains curcumin, a powerful healing compound that’s been shown to alleviate multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease by regulating inflammatory substances in the body.
