Turmeric is one of the main ingredients of yellow curry. It contains a substance called curcumin, which has already shown strong anti-inflammatory effects in studies. Other scientific studies have also shown that taking curcumin reduces the occurrence of depression.

  • Bell peppers are great vegetables

Peppers are rich in vitamin C, fibre and carotenoids. Since they are also low in carbohydrates, they is one of the best low carb vegetables for the keto diet.
