Coconut Curry Soup

When eating this soup, expect to:

a. Feel happy and warm inside
b. Feel full for hours after eating thanks to the high fiber, protein and (healthy) fat content
c. Feel energized
d. Probably take a good poop because your body will be encouraged to detoxify
e. Feel like a champ because you just made a really awesome and nutritious meal for cheap (you know I'm looking at you college students)
f. Have your liver, heart, immune system and metabolism gently hug you from the inside and say "thank you" for the nourishing meal
