Paleo Curry on a Bed of Cauliflower Rice

Bringing recipes over from Northwest Cavegirls. This one is from Cavegirl Kate

Is it just a British tradition to make curry with left over Christmas Day turkey? I would imagine with Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner, Americans have even more leftovers… right?
There is nothing nicer than a “Ruby Murray" (that’s cockney rhyming slang for curry, BTW)  during the week after the big day.
These curries are tried and tested and are super YUMMY! My wonderful hubby made these with chicken and they turned out fantastic. Note that I have amended the recipes to allow for turkey Winking smile
Would ya Adam and Eve it. Sit yerself down and have a butcher's at our Paleo Ruby Murrays!
(Would you believe it. Sit yourself down and have a look at our Paleo curries)

I wish there was smell’ovision because my house smelt just like an Indian restaurant and the curries were so SO flavorsome. I’m sure there is something to say for the aromatherapy benefits that we get from these smells and the properties in the spices. It certainly makes me feel good!

Another benefit of paleo friendly curries is that we don’t get that gorged uncomfortable feeling which we would normally experience after eating a curry. You know that “OMGosh I am SOooo full” feeling followed by that morning after feeling. You know you had a curry the night before right?
We have no rice, no breads and no beer = NO GRAINS!


No bloating, NO digestive discomfort and NO morning after the night before curry feeling!!
I love curry and NOW we can all Red heart it even more!

Best scarper now, Ta-Ta!

(I best be off – good bye)
