Chicken Sweet Potato Spinach Curry

My goodness!

Any bachelor fans out there?  I must say, this is the most “invested” I have ever been in a bachelor/bachelorette season, but the finale last night?  Weird is the only thing I have to say about it…

Other than that, yesterday was a great day!

Mondays are my day to eat breakfast at home and I was craving a smoothie yesterday morning.  I feel like it has been forever since I last had one, so I whipped up a blueberry spinach smoothie with some Perfect Protein powder to give it some extra staying power.  Man did it hit the spot!

Lunch was a giant and delicious salad full of spinach and romaine topped with sweet potato, carrot, tomato, avocado, and hard boiled egg.

After work, I taught Bodypump and CXWORX then grabbed all thousand of my bags (for some reason I feel the need to carry every.single.thing. with me at all times) and Brian and I hurried home to catch the finale of the Bachelor.

While watching the Bachelor, Brian enjoyed a snack and I enjoyed a plate full of veggies, cauliflower rice, and some hard boiled eggs.  Simple, but hit the spot!

Now, tonight’s dinner?

It’s going to be a repeat of a meal we had last week:

curry dinner

It turned out so well the first time, I decided to make it again and share the recipe with you!

This was my crockpot meal this week, so if you have a busy week coming up or you aren’t in love with cooking this is a great option for you.  Definitely a “set it and forget it” type of meal that doesn’t require much thought.  Just toss all the ingredients in the slow cooker and call it a day!

While it is simple, this meal calls for lots of spices which make it SUPER flavorful.  Brian’s dad got us some pretty cool ;ess common spices as a wedding shower gift and I finally found a chance to use the tumeric and cardamom pods:

A little note about the cardamom: those little pods add great flavor, but make sure you don’t eat them as you are eating the meal.  I even went as far as pulling them out before serving the meal to avoid accidentally chomping on one :)
