    Matcha & Lime Pie Recipe
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | February 17, 2020
    While green tea has long been a recommended part of a healthy diet, another brighter shade is becoming increasingly popular: matcha. Matcha is a type of green tea made by taking young tea leaves and grinding them into a bright green powder. The powder is then whisked with hot water. This is different from regular green tea, where the leaves are infused in water, then removed.  Matcha, like other green teas, contains a class of antioxidants called catechins. Matcha is high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body. Studies have linked green tea to a variety of health benefits, like helping to prevent heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer, and even encouraging weight loss. It is always great when you can include something like this into your diet, even if it is not your kind of thing or you don't like the taste. So we have the solution and that is our Matcha & Lime Pie recipe!

    The Art of Meditation
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | October 29, 2019
    The majority of Thai people (nearly 95%) are Buddhists, and one of the principle features of Buddhism is its focus on meditation and thus the attainment of nirvana: a transcendental state in which desire and suffering are overcome and the practitioner escapes the cycles of karma and reincarnation to attain a higher state. There seem to be as many methods of meditation as there are teachers, but some of its common features are using a single word (often the name of Buddha) as a focus, controlled breathing, and an attempt to view your thoughts dispassionately and from the outside, thus finding ways to control and dismiss your worries and find solutions to your problems. For example, you may be worrying about any number of things: your family; your relationship; your job; your health; and events in the wider world. Sometimes these worries can feel like spinning plates: just as you give one a little twist to keep it going, another will start to wobble. You run to set it going again, but now th...

    Thai Slow Cooker Recipes
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | September 21, 2019
    When the leaves start falling and the weather starts to change, all we want is warming comfort food to come home to. One of the best ways to do this is by making use of your slow cooker. You pop all the ingredients in when you get up in the morning and then eat it when you get home at the end of a cold, dark day - it's perfect. Now, just because you're not standing in front of a stove for a few hours does not mean you can't enjoy delicious Thai food because there are so many slow cooker recipes that make delicious Thai food that you'd be mad not to try them. So, here is a round up of a few recipes for you to try. Slow Cooker Thai Beef Curry It’s true that the long, slow cooking period mellows flavors. But bold spices, in bold amounts, will hold their own over time. Here, we start with big flavor from a good amount of curry paste and fish sauce, and we finish with...

    Powerful Affirmations & The Power of Positive Thinking
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | August 21, 2019
    Words are extremely powerful, whether they’re spoken aloud or in our minds and shouldn’t be underestimated. A single word, all on its own, can plant a seed within our minds and if left to grow overtime, particularly if it is fed and watered with more words and thoughts can grow and manifest into an actual reality. This is all well and good when that initial, fledgling word is a positive one, but when it’s negative this can have harmful effects on your whole mindset. The problem with negative thoughts is that they can become self-fulfilling prophecies. We talk ourselves into believing that we're not good enough. And, as a result, these thoughts drag down our personal lives, our relationships, and our careers. It might sound like a terrible cliché but in order to achieve success, a positive frame of mind is essential. Yes, it is impossible to be positive 100% of the time but the important thing is that positivity rather than negativity is the overriding emotion. What is an Affirmation?

    Is All Thai Food Spicy?
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | July 9, 2019
    Something we hear a lot in Thai Terre is that when people are considering restaurants in East Sussex they dismiss Thai food because someone in the party doesn’t like spicy food, so we decided it was time to put to rest the myth that all Thai food is spicy.

    There is a health benefit in eating spicy Thai food.  Spices in large quantities reduce intestinal bacteria and parasites, so in the tropics, people adopted spicy food and simply felt better.

    Spicy food also increases blood circulation and it also helps regulate sweating, which keeps the body cool. Spicy food brings the blood from the core to the skin’s surface and dilates the capillaries in the skin, which helps us to sweat and expel the heat. Thai food is a blend of strong flavor’s giving sensations of spicy, sweet, salty and sour combinations complimented with many aromatic infusions.

    Thai cuisine is born of a melting pot of different flavours and influences, includi...
