Running From Diabetes Podcast Episode 35

I give my weekly update. I talk about my ladder/steep roof exercise plan.
I also introduce my plant based recipe of the week.
Tom Yum (Hot & Sour Thai) Soup:
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 5 kaffir lime leaves
  • 3 slices unpeeled galangal, about 2 inches long (ginger will work)
  • 3 slices lemongrass, about 2 inches long
  • 1 cup sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons thin soy sauce
  • 10 Thai chile peppers, pounded with the edge of a knife or cooking mallet to release the flavor
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced (optional)
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 8 medium-size cubes tofu, optional (your favorite brand)
  • Dash chopped cilantro
  • Dash chopped green onions


In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable broth to a boil. Once boiling, add the lime leaves, galangal and lemongrass and boil for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, thin soy sauce, Thai chiles, lime juice, tomatoes, onions and tofu, if desired, and boil for another 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and green onions.
Note: For extra spice, add more Thai chile peppers
