Default Thai food

Okay, I know I'm probably just asking a question that I already know the answer to...but does anybody know what would be a good choice when eating out Thai food??? I love Thai food w/ my favorite foods being pad thai chicken (I know, I know, everybody's fave, LOL) and lumpia. I'm assuming if I could find lumpia wrappers made out of wheat I would be okay...but how do you duplicate pad thai chicken w/o the rice noodles???

I've never done any shopping in the Asian markets...is it even feasible that they would have these things in SB friendly versions???

You could use soy noodles, or try out some whole wheat thin-spaghetti noodles in place. I have done this with Thai recipes before, like my beloved chicken & broccoli satay, and it turns out delicious.

Does anyone know what cornstarch is made of? I know it's a thickener but does it have sugars? Allot of Thai and Chiense dishes use cornstarch I was told. Can't seem to find anything on it.??????????

Corn starch is what its name implies, all starch made of corn. It goes right to your blood sugar and is not allowed. Thai and Chinese foods are also usually really sodium heavy and often have sugar in the sauces. You can sometimes get foods without sauces but that might not really be what you are looking for tastewise.

CyndiM,

Thanks for putting it that way! I normally order my meals with the sauce on the side but I'm trying to figure out what to eat when I do this. I thought maybe the garlic sauce might be a good choice, any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

the only thing I ever seem to be able to order when I am eating thai and not making it on my own is Pad Prik Khing - chicken, string beans and red curry paste. It sets off no cravings for me. It *is* salty though so I down 2 waters before and 2 after (at least). If brown rice isn't available, I eat it on it's own.
