Coconut Curry Shrimp Rice Bowl makes Healthy Eating Easy & Delicious


Over the past couple of months, I’ve shared a few sample recipes from Always Eat After 7 PM by Joel Marion. They included this Paleo Fruit Tart with Dairy-Free CustardCherry Garcia Nice Cream, and No Bake Salted Caramel Bars. But his book isn’t just about dessert. In fact, most of it is dedicated to everyday meals, like this Coconut Curry Shrimp Rice Bowl.

Coconut Curry Shrimp with Rice is the Easy Way to Weight Loss

I was chatting with our neighbor the other day, and she is currently limiting her eating window – nothing after 6pm, and avoiding carbohydrate heavy meals. But according to Joel, these rules are outdated and completely unnecessary. His strategy includes straightforward food lists, easy-to-follow meal plans and recipes for different weight loss phases. And best of all, he encourages you to enjoy eating comfort foods in the evening.

According to Joel, rice is a “super carbohydrate,” so this nutritious dish can satisfy nighttime hunger without restriction. And the warm Indian flavor from the curry, tomato, and coconut will keep you coming back for more.

Please note that Always Eat After 7 PM is not a strictly dairy-free book, but it offers many dairy-free recipes, like this coconut curry shrimp rice bowl.
