Nothing makes me feel cozier in winter than setting up shop with a good curry. In addition to the undeniable gratification of this familiar comfort food, it also helps ward off our seasonal nemesis, the common cold. This bowl is a particular favorite. The inherent warmth of the spices is the perfect pairing to the earthiness of the beets and the kale. The cool creaminess of the cilantro-lime yogurt takes it to the sublime. The best part of this bowl is that it tastes rich and indulgent, but it's’ packed with good things. Isn’t that just like a Dimes girl to sneak in the healthy stuff when you think you’re being bad? Everyone’s favorite powerhouse, kale, is filled with protein, iron and essential vitamins. Beets detoxify and lower blood pressure. Besides knocking out colds, curries are a cancer preventative and protect against heart disease. Take that!
