Healthy, because

The grated ginger root in this hearty stew adds a powerful dose of gingerol, which has many medicinal properties. The turmeric also adds a ton of nutrients including vitamin C, fiber and iron.

This dish is high in protein but low in carbs, making it perfect for paleo diets. If you're not on a low-carb diet, adding brown rice to this dish will give it a richer texture and add a significant serving of fiber.
