This is National Nutrition Month and the phrase for this year is "Get Your Plate in Shape." This is an important month for us because we at Curry Intermix focus on healthy foods that are flavorful and satisfying.
So, how do we "get our plate in shape?" Simple! By focusing on a balanced plate! A typical North Indian meal includes a serving of bread or rice, vegetables, lentils/beans and/or meat and yogurt. That is how we plan on shaping our plate, and we might even add a small portion of dessert at the end! After all, as long as we eat balanced portions and in moderation, our plate is going to be in perfect shape.
Eat right! Eat healthy! Eat balanced meals!!
