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!

Healthy Pad Thai Nutrition Info:

Chicken & Shrimp: These two lean protein options contribute to building and maintaining muscle and tissues in your body and helping regulate many body processes, it also promotes fullness and may help in managing your weight.

Bean Sprouts: are an excellent source of micronutrients and fiber. They may also help with digestion and preventing chronic disease. Make sure you rinse them!

Snow Peas: Sugar snap peas and snow peas share identical nutritional profiles and are less starchy than a typical shelled pea. They’re also low in calories and provide many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and folate.

Carrots: are an excellent source of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. They are also a good source of several B-vitamins, vitamin K and potassium.
