Our phones are like our purses.
We have all of our dear information in there. Every time someone lets me look at their phone and their applications, I feel guilty – like I’m looking through someone’s belongings, like I’m looking through someone’s purse!
So I thought, this could make a fun post – Android is a lot different than an iPhone in terms of how the applications are shown. In the Android, you can set up your main pages that hold the apps you use the most often. Everything else can be accessed through a list of applications. You don’t really see those unless you specifically navigate there though. For all someone would know, the few apps that are featured on the main screens are the only apps I have on my phone!
I don’t remember I was this excited to make a meal before. I don’t count desserts, those are always exciting. But the thing is, I have been craving REAL food lately. Like, real dinner food – not just yogurt and cereal, which is what I’ve been having. Don’t blame me, eating that way is quick and easy and doesn’t require any prep. Plus it’s unlikely that the food will go bad! While with more real food, something that involves vegetables for example, they can go bad pretty quickly. Thankfully my overwhelming sweet tooth has been pretty tame lately and I bet intuitive eating is the cause of that – I am beginning to see that I need REAL dinners to stay happy and balanced! So here it is!
Why yes, you read that correctly. I used my crock pot for the first time! Finally! That’s why I was SO excited. I bought the crock pot a month or so before I moved out of my old apartment – since I’m now only living with one other person (not three, like I did previously) and our kitchen is nice and big – I am finally able to make dinner for myself! Yay! This curry recipe I found was the most interesting to me since I already had some of the ingredients and only had to buy some veggies to make it complete. So that’s how the lightened up Sweet and Spicy Vegetarian Curry came about!
The curry was not as much of a curry as I expected it to be. I’m not a huge curry eater (read: I never eat curry) but I expected it to have… I don’t know, a more curry flavor? But then again, I did adapt from the original recipe listed below and I did not add curry paste, just curry powder. If you do make this and want a more curry flavor, I do recommend you add more curry powder than you think you’d need or you can add curry paste. I just didn’t wanna go out and buy something I would only use for one recipe.
The recipe is very light and filling. But I did notice that my tummy did not handle something well and I’m going to assume it was because I used white rice (it’s the only one I’ had.. I’ve had it for a while too, haha I never make rice). I got bloated right away and I felt kinda “off” – almost like allergy symptoms but not intense, thankfully. I’m thinking I won’t be eating this with rice next time to see if rice was indeed the culprit since I’ve had all of the ingredients in the curry before. Maybe besides the coconut milk, but I use coconut flour quite often and I don’t see any adverse effects so I doubt that’s what it was.
