Summer is around the corner! With kids out of school you may want to change your schedule around and/or come more often. Feel free to do both, but please give me an idea of when you will most likely attend, and also please let me know if you are not continuing. June training starts Sunday, May 30 and continues through Saturday June 26. 


Evelyn has some kids sports scheduling to negotiate and will not be able to teach these classes after this week is over. Currently we don’t have anyone to take those time slots for June. If you would like to come in and do cardio on Fridays at 430 and Saturdays at 935, please let me know and we will help you with that equipment. 


For an almost 2-year-old Thurs/Fri from 8 to 6 for the entire summer. If you’ll be out of town some of those weekends they do have somebody that could fill-in.  They’ll pay $10/hr and when she takes a nap the babysitter can take a break; the afternoon hours could end early at 515 pm or even earlier if necessary. In other words, they’ll be flexible with scheduling if you can’t work the whole time due to other obligations. If you know someone who might be interested please let me know!

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 medium-sized potatoes (raw)
  • 1 medium-sized carrot

Servings3 servings




  • 1 cup rice (Jasmine or brown rice)
  • 1 small onion, cut into stripes
  • 2 small potatoes, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large carrot, cut into slices
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon red curry paste (optional) adjust if the curry paste you’re using is very spicy, mine was very mild
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • cashews (optional)
  • fresh cilantro (optional)


1.                   Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package.

2.                   In a large pan, heat some oil and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes. Then add the potatoes and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in the red curry paste and the curry and cook for another minute.

3.                   Add the coconut milk, vegetable broth, carrot, chickpeas, and peas and cook for about 20 minutes.

4.                   Season with salt and pepper and serve with cashews and cilantro.


  • Adjust the curry paste to your personal liking. The curry paste I used was rather mild. 
  • I included potatoes in the original recipe. However, if you want the recipe to be quicker, you can just leave them out. Cook the curry for about 15 minutes if you’re not using potatoes.
  • Serve the curry with brown rice for a healthier version.
  • I used frozen peas, but of course you can also use fresh green peas.
  • This recipe freezes well. You can freeze it in an airtight container for up to three months.
  • It will last about 4-5 days in the fridge in an airtight container. D
