Exclamation Thai Food Emergency, HELP!

I am supposed to go out to dinner with friends tonight for Thai food. I only ALWAYS get one thing and one thing only: Chicken Pad Pik (or Prik) King.

It's green beans and chicken in a spicy sauce. I've tried looking up the recipe for the sauce and the best I can find is this (ps-none of it is fried)

6 ounces meat of choice (beef, chicken, pork, shrimp or duck), tofu or vegetables
2 teaspoons oil
1 teaspoon Prik King curry
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fish sauce
Kaffir lime leaves
1 cup green beans
1/2 cup water

Do you think the sugar will set off a craving? I should be starting Phase 2 as of yesterday but I did have one beer so I want to go back to phase 1 for another day (although I haven't had any cravings).

Will eating this set me back? I won't eat the rice (and will ask that they don't even bring it out as I love it).

If you think it will, do you have suggestions on what I should order?

THANKS

Jenn, it doesn't sound that bad. I'd go for it. (but don't forget NOT to eat the rice!!)

Sounds good. Maybe if I cook for THEM one day, lol

Thanks Ellis. And I know, no matter how good the rice smells, I won't eat it!

Default Too late for tonight, but...

My favorite Thai restaurant thing, which I think is very healthy, is the beef salad (Yum Nua). It's grilled slices of sirloin laid on top of raw vegetables, scallions, cucumbers, tomato, and onion, and dressed with lime juice and fish sauce. It's usually on the appetizer menu, but I get it as a main course. Often also featured with shrimp instead of beef (Yum Pla, I think).
