RECIPE – HEALTHY PAD THAI WITH SOBA NOODLES
My god, I love food. Really, I do! I love trying new flavours, I love feeling satisfied by the process of creating a meal from whole, fresh food. Mostly, I love sharing it with the people I love.
I also dig it when someone tries a recipe I’ve shared and they love it too! Job done.
At Yoga Village (where I teach) we are running a detox throughout the month of February.I was fortunate enough to help create the detox program and run the kick-off Wellness Workshop to the enrolled detoxers.
I recently heard positive feedback about the recipe below which was included in the detox meal plan. This recipe is a tweaked version of one received through my studies. Yep, I studied at a pretty awesome school that makes being healthy super easy with lots of recipes and resources.
Now, this recipe is SOO delicious with an unbelievable sauce that it almost feels naughty. But it’s NOT. It’s a dream for veggies and surprisingly meat eaters think this is the bees knees as well. (Still don’t get that saying – what’s so cool about Bees Knees?)
So, enough talking. Enjoy this as a really healthy and satisfying dinner or even for lunch the next day at work!
Saha to you!
