Foods are valued depending on what you compare them to

What makes this curry a little bit more health promoting that the usual recipes?

First of all it is plant-based, which inherently makes it a far better choice (more on this in other posts).

Second of all we tweaked the ingredients a bit to make it more nutrient dense.

Improvements made:

  • swapping white rice noodles for whole grain rice noodles
  • eliminating adding oil to our recipe, drastically reduces the fat content
  • Introducing more protein with adding tofu and edamame
  • using whole food ingredients
  • packed with diverse vegetables
  • high fiber content

Very important tip to balancing your meals

Balancing your meals to make them more nutrient dense, help with satiety, and fiber intake.


Soup to begin your meal is always an improvement in water, fiber, and nutrient intake. Make any soup you like and help with satiety before you dig into the pizza, so you can fully enjoy every bite.


A great salad can balance out any meal. In our case we add it for variety of nutrients, and to improve the fiber content of the meal. We suggest an abundant green salad with all the fun veggies you like to add color and taste.

If you don’t want it to take away from your pizza experience – just eat it before hand, after the soup or instead of it.

Be creative

Explore your palate and all the ways you can make this dish more balanced, nutritious and delicious. Try introducing more ingredients like vegetables, legumes, seeds, nuts, herbs or spices.
