Special Diets with spa cuisine by Chiva-Som, Hua Hin Thailand

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Chiva-Som’s award winning chefs have created a range of appetising dishes for guests with special dietary needs. Each recipe is designed to the usual exacting standards, but with the bonus of being suitable for diabetics or vegans, unless otherwise stated. Dishes that contain wheat or dairy products are also clearly marked.

Among the tasty choices listed for diabetics are Mountain Bread Cone with Chicken and Mixed Salad (also available as a vegetarian option), which is a good source of protein, calcium, and vitamin B12; and Seared Tempe with Brown Rice Bread, a vegetarian dish with no wheat content. It’s rich in minerals, particularly iron and calcium, and is also cholesterol free. Some of its health benefits are reduced risk of blood pressure and blood cholesterol, cancer and osteoporosis.

The vegan selection include a delicious and filling Dill Yoghurt Dip with Honey Pistachio Fruit Crudités. Its content of calcium, vitamin B complex and the antioxidant vitamin E is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. It reduces harmful LDL cholesterol in the body, aids digestion and can remove impurities in the blood and liver.

Roasted Almond Coated with Raw Nut is another vegan possibility, rich in B complex vitamins, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iron. It’s a help for decreased cholesterol and may also reduce the risk of heart disease. Being rich in nuts and good fat, it’s a great energy booster, too.

The special menu contains full details of each meal, including protein, calorie and fat content. Chiva-Som staff are very happy to help with any further information or visit Chiva-Som Spa cuisine.
