Nightshade-Free Curry

Nightshade-Free Curry

One of the core tenets of the Conscious Cleanse is removing common inflammatory foods from our eating rotation for 2 weeks to allow our systems to detox and find underlying food sensitivities.

Tomatoes fall under the category of nightshades, so during our 14-day cleanse, we keep them off our plates because they can cause inflammation.

Just like many people are sensitive to gluten, dairy, soy, and other common allergens, some people have a reaction from eating nightshades, including tomatoes. 

Many curry recipes include a tomato-based sauce, so if you’re someone who is sensitive to tomatoes and nightshades, or if you’re just looking for a yummy cleanse-friendly curry, this recipe is for you!

This curry recipe is amazing as is, or paired with veggies, rice, chicken, or lamb. It makes a quick and easy one-pot meal perfect for busy weeknights.
