I get a lot of my spices from Penzey's Spices. They seem to be reasonably priced and they have a terrific selection! They have some pre-mixed spices, and in some cases the mix has sugar, so if you're looking at a pre-mix, check all the ingredients. They list 'em.
Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Pensey's is a great spice place, but beware of pre-made mixes as many have nightshades (peppers). This is why I usually work from scratch and just use black pepper to adjust for heat. I have been amazed at how hot just black pepper can make a dish! Tumeric and cumin are great additions. I think you need to just start playing in the kitchen to discover what you might like.
Make a sweet curry instead of a hot curry

Here's my recipe for yellow curry. I too don't do well with nightshades...or garlic/onion.
1.5 tsp minced/ crushed fresh ginger
1 heaping tsp generic yellow curry powder (turmeric, cumin, and some other stuff)
2-3 tbsp Olive/coconut oil
1 can coconut milk
4 med carrots diced
5 oz fresh spinach
1 lb diced meat
salt and pepper to taste
In a 3 quart sauce pan
Add curry powder and fresh ginger
Sauté for around 30 seconds (extract favors into the oil)
Add coconut milk and carrots
Simmer 5 minutes
Simmer 3 minutes
Simmer 2 minutes
Add salt and pepper
Poke it quickly, with a stick.
