Vietnamese Vegetable Curry

Although Zen Health Fitness believes in a balanced diet, you know meat, vegetables, salad. Sometimes it great to just rock a vegetable dish on its own.

We often do a 14 day detox where we cut out meat based protein and all the other things that you enjoy that are bad for you.

Finding a decent, vegetable curry dish can be a little difficult.  We found an amazing vietnamese vegetable curry dish you can cook anytime:
