Did you know we can make most dishes vegetarian, and/or gluten-free – all you have to do is ask!
Yes, we’ve taken what’s great about Thai food, and made it even BETTER for all to enjoy!
What Can Be Consumed Safely On a Gluten Free Diet?
Healthy Fats – For year’s media, researchers, and health advocates were lobbying for “low fat diets”. But, after a bit of research and experience what was discovered was cutting back on healthy fats did not in fact make people healthier. Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, pasture raised grass-fed butter, avocado oil, seed oils (sunflower, grape seed, etc.) are all safe, healthier gluten free healthy fat alternatives.
Protein – Just because certain glutinous grains cause a problem doesn’t mean one cannot enjoy a fabulous meal. Whole eggs, chicken (preferably pasture raised/organic), wild caught fish, grass-fed beef, turkey, pork and wild game are all gluten free safe.
It is important to note however, and keep in mind just what the animal is eating because you in turn are eating the same. An animal supplemented with glutinous grains could prove to be problematic for a very sensitive individual.
Vegetables – We love our veggies at Thai Street Kitchen. Speaking of, have you tried our Thai Street Salad; freshly chopped kale, spinach, cucumbers, red onions, cherry tomatoes, shredded carrots, and quinoa topped with a calamansi emulsion. It will surely, have you coming back for more!
Sprouts, celery, carrots, leeks, leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc.) lettuce varieties, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and countless fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, etc.) are all fabulous gluten safe options.
Fruit – Along the same lines as vegetables – the sky is really the limit: apples, oranges, tomatoes, avocado, etc.
Looking for a mouth-watering treat? Our Thai Street Apple Salad – topped with shredded apple, chicken, roasted coconut, red onions, and cashews make it one of my personal favorites.
Gluten Free Grains – Gluten free does not mean grain free. Therefore, you have options – amaranth, quinoa, sorghum, rice (brown, white, and wild), and millet are all reasonable options.
Our Pineapple Fried Rice is a force to be reckoned with fried rice with egg, pineapples, tomatoes, and onions makes for a perfect side dish, or light lunch.
Dairy – While cows milk, goats’ milk, cream, and cheeses are all on the “safe” gluten-free list it’s best to consume these sparingly. And, again much like the proteins if at all possible it is best if you know the source from which it is coming.
Pasture raised, free-range, and organic is best!
What could possibly be better that that? Delicious, all-natural, inspired Gluten Free Thai Food of course!
