Food Around the World Part #10; Thai:

Thai food is a type of cuisine that is becoming much more popular in the US. However with the Americanized versions watch your portion size! Also be careful of those coconut curries! These are high in saturated fat and calories.

A great dish to try next time you go Thai is Tom Yung Gung. Yes strange name, something I have not heard of until doing this research. This dish is composed of shrimp, coriander, lemongrass, ginger, and a few other fresh herbs and spices. This dish is full of antioxidants which inhibit cancerous-tumor growth and boost the immune system. Ginger aids in digestion, turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory, and lemongrass is great for cold and tummy troubles.
