Thai Veggies!

Did you know that there are over two hundred different types of vegetables in Thailand? That’s quite a lot of variety to choose from when picking your healthy greens! There are a lot of options for using these delicious veggies from soups to wraps to stir fries and more. Be creative!

You may have heard reports about the health benefits obtained from eating less meat. Meat can be high in fat, and it’s also expensive, which isn’t a health benefit but a big plus for your wallet! Forgoing meat at least one day a week is also better for the environment, and let’s face it, green is in.

If you are tired of the same old veggie steaming routine and are looking for some new recipes, perhaps you should try out my veggies class! Yum Makeur Yao is grilled eggplant, which is a perfect thing to try this summer season on the grill. Yum Head is a delicious mushroom salad and Tao Hu Tod is deep fried tofu, breaded with mushroom and cilantro. Tofu is an excellent meat swap substitute as it is high in protein and vitamins but also low in sodium, fat and calories.

Give these veggies a try and ditch meat one night a week. You’ll be glad you did!

Give us a call or email us today to sign up for a class!
