Thai Lettuce Wraps with Chicken, Sriracha Shrimp, or Tofu
Dishes like this that are veggies plus protein are ideal. You get your protein from two sources both the chicken, shrimp or tofu as well as the peanuts. These wraps are topped with bean sprouts. Mung beans are small, bright green beans, and bean sprouts are the sprouts that grow from those beans. Bean sprouts are a good source of protein, vitamin C and folic acid. Don't go heavy on the sauce that is served with this dish that's where you would add unhealthy elements.
Thai Cashew Chicken
This dish is simply prepared to maximize the health benefits. Only serve yourself a small amount of rice - we recommend your fist size serving when it comes to rice. And don't be shy and ask for extra veggies!
