For those of you who’ve been following my weekly vlogs will know that I’m ON IT with the new year new me fitness push and so far this year I’ve lost 10lbs – I’m feeling great! But just because I’m eating healthy doesn’t mean my diet’s been boring, in fact, I’ve been experimenting even more than usual which is where this little number comes in – my Healthy Dahl Slow Cooker Curry!
Curries can take a while to cook and require standing over a bubbling pan for a while but I’ve found a great way to get that authentic spicey taste without having to even be there – bring out the slow cooker! You won’t believe how easy this bad boy is and it’s packed full of veggie goodness to fill you up without skewing your intake for the day with lots of oils or butter.

Serve with rice, chapati or wrap but don’t forget to add the extra calories!
We’ve been eating this for the past few days – just keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze!
