As part of my Thai cookbook series, I have published a vegan Thai book. The recipes are mostly curry recipes for the slow cooker. They take only a few minutes to prep and then cook unsupervised in the slow cooker.
I have really enjoyed eating vegan — I know I am getting way less saturated fat and my vegetable intake has soared (my doctor, Dr. Badnews, told me that eating the celery from a Bloody Mary or the olive from a Martini was not enough).

By writing vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, I am learning more about both Thai (and Vietnamese) cooking traditions and how to make flavor into meals without the blunt force of fish sauce and huge amounts of animal proteins.
Living on my own in Thailand will allow me to more easily control my diet and my schedule for exercise. The choice is clear; not I just have to implement the plan. As for the exercise, I am torn between the discipline of Thai kickboxing training (Muay Thai) and a more gentle for of exercise. These heavy things I plan to contemplate this afternoon after a salad!
