Beef Massaman Curry (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Beef Massaman Curry (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Ok, winter officially arrived in Australia. Well, I have to admit I have definitely adapted to the weather over the past three years, so it feels super cold now, even though it’s nothing in compared with European winters of course. However, the fact that we have no heating at home (not even air-condition to use as a heater) doesn’t really help. When it’s around 5 degrees at night you just wanna make sure to stay warm. So there is a lot of comfort food cooking happening in this household at the moment.

And what other food would keep you nice and warm than a bowl of hearty curry? I mean who am I kidding, I can eat curry at any time and weather condition. But the warming spices and chillies are even better in the cold. So here is my version of Beef Massaman Curry (Paleo, Whole30, Low Crab).

Chocolate Cashew Bliss Balls (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan)

Chocolate Cashew Bliss Balls (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan)

Who doesn’t love bliss balls (protein balls, energy bites, you-name-it)? They are the perfect little snack to accommodate your afternoon coffee, to grab when you need to satisfy that sweet craving or simply provide you with little bit of extra energy when needed.

However, most of the bliss balls you get in cafes and shops are just jampacked with sugar and often other unnecessary ingredients too. To be clear, I’m not following a keto lifestyle or saying that all carbs are bad for us. But I do agree with the claim that we eat many more carbs than we need to. And it’s actually super easy to overdo it even with the healthy treats. Because most of them are based on dates or other dried fruits which are super high in carbs and will most likely leave you even hungrier than before. That’s why it’s always good to read labels. Or even better – make the goodies at home. Because there can’t be any easier treat to make at home than bliss balls. Try my Chocolate Cashew Bliss Balls (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan) and see it for yourself 🙂
