Healthy Pad Thai Recipe
Some variation of Thai food is usually on our weekly meal plan because it’s my favorite. If you haven’t added Healthy Pad Thai to your meal prep routine, I suggest you do! It’s a great way to use up leftover veggies and have a leftover lunch you are looking forward to!
The secret is to add extra veggies to your favorite comfort foods. This way you won’t lose the sweet nutty flavor and you’ll get even more nutrition out of it! This version of healthy pad Thai is packed with lean protein and veggies making it satiating and flavorful.
We make this recipe with fresh caught Alaskan shrimp right out of Prince William Sound. Shrimp has a ton of nutrient value. It’s rich in selenium, iodine and iron. I’ve heard many people worry about the cholesterol in shrimp. It’s true shrimp has cholesterol but it also has omega 3’s and antioxidants known to promote heart health. Cholesterol in food sources is fine in moderation!
