Author Notes

As a paleo, gluten-free (and sometimes vegan) foodie, I find it difficult to find lower calorie options of my favorite foods. Pad thai is a worldwide love for many, so I found a way to take a higher calorie dish filled with loaded oils and carbs and condensed it into a super healthy and filling meal, suitable for your health nut to your all American foodie. —Alexa Curtis
