Dr Oz did an entire segment on Alternative Health Secrets from India, and one of the powerful tools in Ayurveda Medicine that he profiled was Curry Powder.  Dr Kulreet Chaudhary said that her family’s secret Curry Powder Recipe is far superior to regular Curry Powder and, once you try this, you will not be able to go back to regular, store bought Curry Powder.  The reason I am including this on Recipes for Diets is because Curry Powder is a great way to cook healthy dishes with lots of flavor.  Just use Curry Powder in place of salt, pepper and fat, and your dishes will be sure to pack a punch!  Plus, Kulreet Chaudhary told Doctor Oz that Curry Powder helps to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease, which is why the rate of Alzheimer’s Disease in India is four times lower than it is in America.  The most important ingredient for fighting off Alzheimers is turmeric.  Also, as a side note, Fenugreek is really great for people with chronic digestion problems.

5 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
