Close your eyes and imagine a big bowl of Panang Curry or Pad Thai. Yum! Not only is Thai food delicious, but many of the ingredients and spices used in Thai dishes have significant health benefits. The chefs and servers at Thailand Cuisine, the best Thai food restaurant in Kahului and Kihei, HI, are here to share some of the healthy and tasty benefits of Thai food. 

Curry

thai dishesThere are many different curry dishes at Thailand Cuisine, including red, green, and Panang curry. One of the main ingredients in curry is a spice called turmeric, which gives the sauce its bright yellow, red, or orange color. Turmeric has a warm, bitter taste and contains a chemical called curcumin, which is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Eating turmeric can help alleviate a myriad of health conditions, including joint pain, stomach bloating, high cholesterol, and skin inflammation. It is also used to treat depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes.

Coconut Milk

Another main ingredient in many Thai dishes is coconut milk. This is easily digestible and helps nourish the immune system. Coconut milk is high in medium-chain fatty acids that contain lauric acid. According to health experts, it is antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal. Thai food lovers don’t need to worry about coconut milk’s high fat content: Your body turns the medium-chain fatty acids into energy instead of storing these calories as fat. Coconut milk may actually help you lose weight!

The spices and sauces in Thai food can help reduce inflammation in the body and burn fat. Add those health benefits to the large portion of fresh vegetables and lean proteins like tofu, chicken, or shrimp, and your Thai dish is a veritable fountain of youth!

With two locations and options for both meat lovers and vegetarians, Thailand Cuisine is easily the best Thai food restaurant around. Benefit your body and satisfy your taste buds with authentic Thai dishes at Thailand Cuisine. Call the Kahului restaurant at (808) 873-0225, or dial (808) 875-0839 to place an order at the Kihei branch. Visit the website for a full menu of delicious Thai dishes.
