LowFod Map Chicken Curry

Okay… so it happens to everyone at least once in a while… bloating! However, it always seems such a taboo thing to talk about – foods are very complex and can do a world of things to our body. Even how we eat or drink can contribute to bloating and well.. discomfort… This should be something we are able to discuss and overcome, in my recent efforts I have looked into the LowFod Map diet to see if it can help (give it a search on google and the full list or yes and no foods will appear!). The one thing I struggle with is that it is not black and white, you can eat hazelnuts but not cashews, broccoli but oh no not cauliflower and etc etc the list goes on… The idea is to go through an elimination phase and cut out everything that could be causing issues (which trust me, is alot!). This is also very difficult if you want to lead a plant based diet as meals become very restrictive, so I have found myself increasing my meat intake. However, as some one who could happily be vegan (if my digestive system allowed me to), eating a lot of plain meat can be well, kinda boring… Voila, I decided to attempt a curry that cut out the potential triggers and well it tasted pretty darn good! Serve with (naturally gluten free) brown rice and I love a cheeky bit of grated carrot in there (extra vegetables woo). This is super easy, surprisingly tasty and can be whipped up within the hour after work and reheated the next day.
