This really is another case of too much of any one thing is not good. Many things mentioned on this menu is high in fat but they are good fats so just don't eat that much.
I'm so hungry and the suggestions sound simply delicious......
Thom Ka Gai is necessary for my mental health. :-) Love the stuff. No oftener than I get to go out for Thai food, I'm going for it & will watch fat grams elsewhere. Moderation, remember?
This is not the first time SP has offered advice that is contrary to good sense. What intelligent person would ask a chef to replace coconut oil with vegetable oil, when vegetable oil is usually sourced from GMO ingredients (corn, canola, soy).
I am once again appalled by the author's lack of good sense. Where is the quality control? This is not the first time I've found information on this site that is contrary to current medical knowledge.
Lard or coconut oil (natural, good fats) is MUCH healthier for you than over-processed vegetable oil (full of bad fats). Don't be fooled by Spark's recommendations...
So glad I came across this article! Have a birthday party tonight in a thai restaurant so now I know what the best options are. Thanks Spark!
I just had Thai last night with my husband. We split an appetizer and soup and I had a few bites of his dessert (jack fruit w/young coconut and tapioca). That was plenty of food for us- we didn't even order an entre and we still took home most of the soup. BTW I really wanted to order the Tom Ka Gai, but the waitresss misunderstoop me and we ended up with Tom Yam Goong -very yummy!
