A lot of Thai people practise vegetarianism, known as mung-sa-wi-rat at some point in their lives whether for a body cleanse or a lifestyle choice.

Of course Thailand has a prolific amount of vegetables to choose from and generally the Thai people consume more fruit and vegetables than meat. Some of the most popular and well known ingredients in Thai vegetarian cuisine include; soy sauces, tofu, fresh chillies, garlic, lemon grass, coconut milk, ginger, coriander and kaffir lime.
