Low carb and protein Thai lunch on London’s Kings road Chelsea. My favourite little cafe with Thai street food. Yummy healthy and inexpensive. I always ask the rice noodles to be replaced with vegetables so they add extra broccoli and leaves.
The base ingredient of a Laksa is coconut milk which has loads of health benefits:
Improves Heart Health by Lowering Blood Pressure and Cholesterol.. Builds Muscle and Helps Lose Fat. .
Provides Electrolytes and Prevents Fatigue. … Helps Lose Weight. … Improves Digestion and Relieves Constipation. … Manages Blood Sugar and Controls Diabetes. … Helps Prevent Anemia.
When you fancy comforting warming carb-type food instead try a healthy version that nourishes with the warmth coming from chillies and spices rather than starchy or sugary carbs.
This is a Thai prawn Laksa with broccoli, basil leaves, pal choi, a few rice noodles, big fat juicy prawns in a thick coconut broth flavoured with chillies, and Thai spices including lemongrass, galangal, fish sauce, coriander and a pinch of palm sugar etc.
Filling, warming and healthy.
One of my favourite Thai dishes of rice noodles, bean shoots, chopped peanuts, king prawns, and lime juice, chillies, fish sauce, galangal, coriander, Thai basil and a tiny pinch of palm sugar to flavour.
