That was surprisingly entertaining to read. I too love Thai and Indian food; I make a pretty mean Palak Paneer (using tofu instead of paneer), but haven't been able to master Thai food. They have secret ingredients that really bring the flavors to life...not sure I want to know they are.

Actually, since living in Portland OR, which is a great place for Thai food, I've barely been able to touch Chinese food since. If you're ever in Portland try to make it to Khun Pic's Bahn Thai - best Thai food I've ever had (maybe best restaurant food, period).

Since my wife has friends in Portland, we need to go there. I wish I could be a vegetarian like you but my attempts have failed for two reasons: I overeat peanut butter, oatmeal, etc. and I'm scared of tofu, its estrogen content.

I don't eat a lot of tofu - maybe once a week. I actually prefer seitan, which is also called "wheat meat" and is what most Asian restaurants use when they have "mock" meat. But tofu is far from being necessary on a vegetarian diet.

Peanut butter is deadly but delicious. Actually, if you go to Khun Pic's she makes incredible peanut sauce. But almond or cashew nut is much healthier.

I will occasionally eat fish because I do have meat cravings, although for most of my adult life I've been more strict. I probably would be healthier eating some meat as I'm type-O blood and do have meat cravings on occasion. I tend to eat too many carbs and sugars (even if they are "healthy" organic versions) and could stand to lose 30-40 pounds. I wouldn't be surprised if eating meat would help me with that, but it just never feels right for me.

Thanks. I am now craving a piece of chocolate cake.

I have a strong dislike for wheat gluten, wheat meat and such. But I understand the meat eating revulsion. I have to play a mind game to eat it.

My mother's made-from-scratch 8-inch square raviolis with homemade tomato sauce and meatballs were to die for.

One of those jumbo raviolis sounds like a meal in itself.
