Healthy Eating - Lentil Curry with Courgettes

Lentil Curry – boil red lentils, fry lots onion with garlic, make curry sauce (I mix powders & pastes in cup with hot water). Add all together with plenty tomato paste to thicken, coconut butter, and other herbs such as coriander, turmeric. Serve with rice and/or other veg. Courgettes in pic boiled & butter. I often cook courgettes by draining the water early & finishing with butter (or alternative), garlic, vinegar, ketchup to suite your taste (kids loved them this way).

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing properties.
