    My DH is taking me out for a meal this Friday, just because we have 3 kids (one is 8 weeks old) and we fancied a nice evening out together. We are going to a Thai restaurant and i can't find any Syn values or suggestions in my book. I'm happy to go flexible syns as i find them really useful, but i don't want to go crazy :break_diet:. Can any of you help?

    From the website, mate xxxx
    [​IMG]Eating in a Thai restaurant is an experience in itself with attentive waiters and ornately decorated food. Many Thai dishes take their flavours from coconut milk, peanut oil and carefully blended curry pastes. These are the high-Syn dishes to avoid or enjoy occasionally using a Flexible Syns day (link).
    Although it’s difficult to judge Syn values in restaurant food (due to different preparation methods, oils used etc), Food Optimising friendly options include:
    • Starters orders – rather than deep fried, pastry-packaged spring rolls and samosas, broths such as Poh taek (mixed seafood soup) are a fantastic Original choice. Som Tum (spicy vegetable salad) is hot stuff for a Green choice.
    • Main event– green or red curry are the most well-known Thai dishes, (with those names you’d think they’d be Food Optimising-friendly!) However, the dishes are made with rich Syn-filled sauces. Healthier menu items include fish and meat that are described as steamed or grilled. These include Hor neung mok pla (hot & sour steamed fish) this tastes and looks pretty impressive – packaged in a banana leaf! Pat gaprao gai (minced chicken with chillies and lime leaves) is another of the healthier Original options. Although it’s a stir-fry dish, it’s made up of Free basic ingredients and there’s no creamy sauce. For a Green choice, pad thai jay is a veggie version of the classic stir fried noodle dish (although the Syns in the oil will need to be taken into account). Khao Suey (Thai fragrant rice) is delicately flavoured steamed rice and gorgeous for a Green day.

    Brilliant. I'll look on the website as well. Looks like it's gonna have to be a (very) flexible syn day. Thanks
