He draws his inspiration from all things wellness. This includes, physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness, which help his viewers get the fullest experience out of their lives!
On the show he starts off by Alex showing us his beautiful blue flower tea, which is a traditional Thai tea from a blue flower plants. It has high amount antioxidants which gives it cancer-fighting properties, and it helps boost the immune system. Add lemon to make it turn a royal purple color.
Next Alex moves onto making his Thai lettuce wraps using tempeh, fried in avocado oil, salt and pepper, instead of soy protein. The dish is packed with colorful nutrient-rich vegetables. The sauce was very simple to make with the almond butter as a base. Easy, simple, and beautiful dish to make for all your family and friends. Poor Patrizia looks like she wants to jump to the other side of the screen to try it!
If that wasn’t enough, Alex also prepares Thai yellow curry noodles. He sautés a variety of veggies, adding yellow curry powder to intensify the flavor of the vegetables. and he uses coconut milk for the curry base. He also uses turmeric and suggests using black pepper with it because it increases the curcumins bioavailability, and it also increases the antioxidant value. We believe in learning something new every day at Jane Unchained News Network!
You are definitely a culinary artist, Alex! The dishes look mouthwateringly delicious! Patrizia’s facial expressions say it all the during show, as she all but drools when Alex tries his amazing food in front of her via video call. We hope she can do the next show in person with Alex, so she can take a few bites! Thank you for being such an inviting, open, and inspirational person Alex!
Wow your friends and family by making these wonderful Thai dishes at home!
