Chicken Pad Thai Zoodles is a light and delicious take on Chicken Pad Thai. It’s packed with flavor, but gluten free, soy free, and Fix-approved!
Confession #64 – My goal this week has been to shower more often.
Now that I am on leave and spend my days at home with my children, I have no idea where the time goes. And how I once managed to workout, shower, and commute nearly an hour each morning. All before 7:3oam.
I need to get on a schedule. It would help if my sweet son would sleep through the night for me. Perhaps then I wouldn’t press snooze a million times, ensuring another day of ponytails and sweat pants.
Anyway, day three has gone pretty well. I even managed a bit of lip gloss.
My other goal was to make a fix inspired, soy free, and gluten free version of my favorite take out dish – Pad Thai. I miss our little neighborhood Thai restaurant from our days living in Philly. I haven’t found one in the burbs that compares.
In total honesty, this may not be perfect from a Pad Thai purist standpoint, but it was still SO yummy. I left out a few key ingredients – namely fish sauce, sugar, and soy sauce, and replaced them with coconut aminos, honey, and fresh lime juice. The result – a deliciously bright and fresh tasting dinner- way better than a lot of take out I’ve had.
Look at me…crushing goals and it’s only
I hope you enjoy the chicken Pad Thai zoodles recipe!
