Welcome to my guilt free Paleo Thai green curry recipe.

I love a curry and I am always shell shocked when nutritionists talk about the calories in them.

When you have those takeaways at the time you think this is nice and this is better than cooking, but when the weight keeps creeping on and you have to give them up then you need a Plan B.

A really good curry that you can make quickly at home without all the excessive calories. Oh and one that is really healthy at the same time too.

Well this is when a Thai Green curry comes into play. Loaded with healthy foods, healthy extras and a healthy sauce it makes the best alternative to those Friday night takeaways that we will ever have.

Plus if you ever asked a nutritionist about weight loss foods to have in your diet they would always encourage:

  • Spices
  • Chicken
  • Avoiding dairy

And you’re achieving all three with this amazing dish.

In my teens I worked both in the Indian takeaway and a Thai restaurant. I used to love watching them cook and the amazing end dishes they would end up with.

At the Indian though everything was deep fried or in double cream. Yet over at the Thai restaurant the worst offender was the calories in the coconut milk.

No wonder whenever you watch shows about longevity it always involves Thai people.

On a final note – when you make a Thai green curry, unlike the red it is a lot less spicy so if you have someone like me to cook for that can’t handle the food really hot then you know what to give them!

  • In a large wok sauté the onion, garlic and ginger with some olive oil and the curry paste until golden.
  • Add the chicken and bay leafs and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  • Add the onion, courgette and pepper and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add all the seasoning, the coconut milk and lime and allow simmering on a medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with zoodles or cauliflower rice. Remove the chilli peppers before serving unless you can handle the heat!


With this Thai green curry I have made it as a DIY style of recipe. So you can swap the ingredients around for what you have in. Swap the chicken for prawns, the courgettes for spinach or even add some peppers.
