Sweet Potato Thai Green Curry – Recipe Video

Today I’d like to share the first of what I hope are many recipes to come.  I filmed this on Monday night after I came home from work.  This is one of my many simple and quick dinners that I make after a long day.  While I typically pre-make most of my meals, one or two nights out of the week I feel inspired to play around in the kitchen a bit.

One of the best parts of recovering from an eating disorder is the freedom that I have in the kitchen.  When I was sick I would have had to weigh the sweet potato, and measure out exactly how much coconut milk, olive oil, and chickpeas I used.  To be honest, I probably wouldn’t even cook with some of these ingredients because they are too calorically dense.  After recovery, all of that fear is just a distant memory.  Now I can experiment, estimate, make mistakes, and I know everything will be okay.  This has allowed me to become a better amateur chef and a happier person.

I hope you enjoy this meal as much as I did!  I think I actually preferred it heated up the next day.  It is super filling, nutritious, and it is vegan!  (I am not vegan – but this is!)

Bon Appetit!

And I totally agree on your comment about the measuring … now that I’m in recovery, I love going into the kitchen with the goal to create yummy and nutritious meals over bland, restrictive, and “diet” foods.Congrats on all of your progress!
