Oink-Oink: Low Carb Pork Dishes/ Some of my Favourite Ingredients/ Top Tips

Beat the Heat with Thai Pork & Veggie Bowls

Do you ever wonder why you always seem to find spicy food in countries with tropical, hot weather?

Well, eating spicy food will stimulate circulation and raise your body temperature.
When you live in a hot climate, the increase in body temperature will diminish the difference between you and the air around you by making you sweat and thus cooling you down, according to the NY Times.

Makes sense to me!

Here’s a spicy Thai Pork & Veggie dish that will cool you down and infuse you with lovely exotic flavours:

This is a light, zesty & spicy bowl of comfort that’s perfect for a hot summer’s eve!

If you have little ones, just tone down the spiciness for them, or cook some of the meat separately with just a tiny bit of chili.

{I tend to put a bit of chili in most dishes, just enough to enhance the flavour and add to the health benefits, but not so much that it’s too spicy for the kids.}

I truly love chilies – it’s probably my favourite spice of all!

Some more reasons {apart from the taste} to love chilies:

  • It reduces bad cholesterol
  • It’s rich in Vit. A, which is an anti oxidant
  • It’s rich in Vit. C, which boosts immunity
  • It’s rich in B-complex vitamins
  • It’s rich in minerals such as iron, magnesium & potassium

So, while we suffer through this current heatwave in SA, whip up a batch of this delicious Thai Pork & Veggie dish and just chill 😉

FYI: Raising your body temperature just before bedtime also helps induce sleep…

    IT sounds so delicious – exactly the type of food I love. Thanks for the tip about putting ginger in the freezer as I often find little bits that have gone soft at the bottom of the fridge whenever I clear it out!
