The warm, soothing spices in the Moroccan Fish Stew feed the soul. This is just the dish for those cold winter nights in, snuggled up at home by the fire. Enjoying the Fiji Joe Turmeric-laced dish is a highly recommended addition to a weight-loss meal plan. It also helps control joint pain and can give you that much-needed relief from sinus symptoms, especially in the wintertime. If you’re anything like me in the wintertime, I do not like going outdoors…
The naturally produced chemical, curcumin found in Fiji Joe Turmeric helps to suppress fat cell generation. Turmeric in a stew, soup or tea helps regulate blood sugar levels, aiding in weight loss. I’ve also added ginger to the stew because apart from its warmth, it reduces hunger, making you feel full, for longer. The cinnamon bark in the stew is a wonderful antioxidant! And the chickpeas in this recipe provide the hearty component of the meal while the protein of choice isn’t so dense. The result? A filling, yet not-so-heavy meal tied together by Fiji Joe Turmeric’s distinctive flavor. Enjoy with warm, steamed rice or on its own for a low-carb option.
Follow up your fish stew with a warm cup of Fiji Joe Turmeric Fat-Burning tea to shed that winter weight, the healthy way.
