Have the subzero temperatures and snowfall left you with the chills and craving comfort? If so then Thai Kitchen Canada and the #TKLucky- 7 have got what you need to warm up. The myriad of colorful and exotic dishes being created in the Thai Kitchen Lucky Recipe Challenge, will not only brighten your spirits but warm your tummy as well.
I had the opportunity to connect with one of the influencers recently, Celebrity Food Blogger Melissa Ramos, the sassy lady, behind #SexyFoodTherapy Inc. Melissa’s high heeled approach to health makes getting healthy fun, exciting and empowering. This approach has been her armory in battle as she faces off for the title of Thai Kitchen Ambassador.
Melissa, who is honored to have been chosen to take part, enjoys the challenge of creating recipes from what she feels is an incredible brand, and, admits that she is addicted to their coconut milk and curries.
When asked if she found it difficult to put a health spin on the recipes she replied “not all all” and “that Thai food generally is healthy anyway, but I wanted to reduce the amount of carbs used and become a little creative with the recipes so that those with food allergies could find them useful and of course, tasty”.
Based on the mouthwatering dishes that Melissa has cooked up for Thai Kitchen, she has definitely succeeded in being not only healthy but creative, resulting in great feedback from the voting public, “From the response that I’ve received, people are really excited to try out the dishes and truthfully, that makes me really happy, because all of them have a healthy twist! So win win for everyone”.
With recipes like Edamame and Green Curry Coconut Soup, Red Curry Coconut Pork Ribs and Grain-Free Upside Down Coconut Pineapple and Chili Cake, it’s no wonder the response has been great.
