One of the best things for me about becoming Vegan was that I started experimenting with all sorts of spices and ethnic foods I would not have explored otherwise- asian, mexican, indian, etc. I eat organic brown rice every day, with black beans, lentils, vegetables, etc (i love carbs, with no apologies, as long as it's whole grain), and always with spices as well as lots of extra virgin olive oil.
This stuff is my favorite Curry Blend,
Frontier Seasonings. Lots of news bits about how turmeric is supposed to be such a great anti-inflammatory too, which is cool because I could eat it every day.
I think you can get it in bulk
too, which I should probably do...
