Good news! Thai cuisine uses lots of fresh vegetables and other healthy ingredients making it a great choice for everyone. If you’re really looking to eat healthy while at a Thai restaurant, try these dishes and substitutions:

  • Spring rolls are deep fried, but our other vegetable rolls are not! All the delicious flavor, with out the deep-fried calories.
  • Chicken satay with peanut sauce is low-carb, uses lean meats, and is packed with flavor. This is a great appetizer to kick-start your healthy Thai meal.
  • Vegetable side dishes use great fresh vegetables and tasty spices like garlic, ginger, and chilis. Adding a vegetable side to your meal will fill you up and keep the meal healthy.
  • Instead of fried rice, go with regular rice.
  • Curry dishes are always a healthy choice. They’re low in carbs and packed with vegetables. Try ordering one with coconut milk, which contains┬álauric acid, which has been shown in more than 60 studies to decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Thai iced tea is delicious, but it has a lot of sugar. Treat it like a dessert instead of a typical beverage if you’re trying to lower your sugar intake.
