Thai Spa Cuisine: Spa cuisine is basically low fat, low salt and low sugar, so making it extremely healthy. These are the 3 essential points of what goes into Thai Spa Cuisine. On top of this, in order to reduce fat intake, Thai Spa Chefs use only the leanest meat and do not rely on oils. Many of the meals consist solely of fish, grains and pulses. Besides the three lows, Thai Spa Cuisine provides only the freshest ingredients doused in a high level of intensity in flavors, so resulting in deliciousness. Even though there is no formal training available in regards to Thai Spa Cuisine, Thailand’s Spa Chefs are guided by selected dieticians and nutritionists who are considerably knowledgeable about the healthiest options possible. What is mandatory, however, is that the Spa Chefs, while dishing up their cuisine, do not slump into indifference and forget about the ultimate flavors. Flavors which are all so essential in allowing people to actually enjoy eating – some of these flavors involve ginger and lemongrass, the latter of which also assists in clearing the breathing tracts.
