Healthiest Thai food staples

IN Thai Cuisine

Not only is Thai food delicious, but it can also be very healthy for you as well. Thai dishes use a wide range of ingredients that contain the nutrients your body needs to be healthy. Here are some of the healthiest Thai food staples to check out. 

Vegetable curry

This flavorful dish is a great way to get in your daily serving of vegetables. Veggies are full of  the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy and energized. You can also opt for tofu curry if you need to fit more protein into your diet. On top of all the nutrients, many of the spices in curry, like turmeric, are anti-inflammatory. 

Tom yum soup

This simmering soup is a great way to warm up after a cold, rainy day. It’s full of bright, citrusy flavors, and it’s satisfying without weighing you down. You can opt to add chicken or tofu for some extra protein, seafood for your essential fatty acids, or veggies for vitamins and minerals, depending on the nutrients you want most. 

Fresh rolls

If you’re looking for a healthier appetizer alternative to spring rolls, check out this tasty option. Instead of being wrapped in fried dough, these vegetable rolls are made with rice paper, which is much lighter. Not only do they contain delicious and healthy vegetables, but they also are made using extra light protein options, like prawns or tofu. If you’re trying to avoid heavier red meat foods, this is a great way to get your protein still in. 

Phad Pak

If you’re craving the rich flavors of fried food, but still want to stay healthy, Phad Pak is a great option. This is a dish full of stir-fried veggies, and you can opt to add a protein option if you want. It’s a filling yet healthy entrée option.
