They are essential in this Curried Green Beans recipe.

Carrots – forget about Vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy superfood, you get Vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging.

Almond oil has a high smoke point making it great for stir-frying and sautéing. It is good for High Heat Up To 460F.  What I like about it is that it has a light, clean flavor that does not alter the taste of the foods I am using it to cook with.

WHO recognizes that Onions help relieve symptoms such as coughs, congestion asthma, and respiratory infections. Onions are full of protective phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, quercetin (an important flavonoid), chromium, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients.

If I had to chose just one herb spice to increase my well being and live a long healthy life it would be turmeric. It helps you when young, when middle-aged, and in old age. It helps both men and women for different reasons. And it is a must in your curried green beans
