WOD? How about a ROD?

Since we've been changing things around at 1000 Percent Fitness, we decided to shake things up on The Daily SWEAT as well.  Along with our Workout of the Day (WOD) we'll be adding a Recipe of the Day (ROD) to our posts, all of which will be delicious Paleo recipes for those of you looking to add variety to your snacks and meals.  If you have any questions or requests, shoot me a message and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.  Enjoy!

Thai Chicken Curry Soup

Serves 4


  • 2 tsp coconut oil;
  • 1 chicken breast, chopped;
  • 1 onion, finely chopped;
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped;
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, chopped;
  • 2-3 tbsp curry powder;
  • 2 cups water or chicken stock;
  • 1 tbsp almond flour, optional, for thickening;
  • 3 cups coconut milk;
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce, optional;
  • ½ tsp fresh coriander, finely chopped;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;


  1. Add the coconut oil and chicken to a large saucepan over a medium heat. Toss the chicken in the oil and cook for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the onion, red bell pepper and mushrooms to the saucepan and cook for just a minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper at this point.
  3. Coat the meat and vegetables in the curry powder (add up to 3 tbsp depending on how spicy you want the dish to be). Cook for just about 45 seconds.
  4. Add the water or stock, almond flour, coconut milk and fish sauce. Stir well. Allow the soup to simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Adjust the seasoning, if needed, and top with the fresh coriander prior to serving.
