Once You Try SA Actress Alex McGregor’s Vegan Thai Green Curry — You’ll Never Look Back

Growing up in a meat-eating household, I grew up believing that no meal was complete, unless there was meat on the plate. I was wrong. Because after reading South African actress Alex McGregor sharing her day on a plate (in the Women’s Health December issue – if you missed it, get it through Magzter), I’m convinced more than ever that the vegan route may not be bad after all.

Keen to switch things up in the kitchen in 2020? Because #resolutions and #goals are strong… This recipe from Alex McGregor is the perfect place to start.
