This Pad Thai has got to be one of my favourite meals, which is a pretty big thing for me to say because god knows I’ve made a lot of meals. I just add in whatever veggies I have on hand but my non negotiable’s are that they are crisp, fresh, and always covered in the satay sauce. You’ll regret it if you don’t make enough sauce, trust me.

I love eating this with chopsticks as it makes you eat slower and really concentrate on the beautiful rainbow plate in front of you.

Making sure I always have mainly plants on my plate is really important to me, and then I’ll choose carbs, healthy fats and protein to add to it. So this dish ticks every box ✓✓✓

It is a great addition to a BBQ or picnic as a side salad, people are always impressed by how great it looks and tastes. I’m actually planning on taking this on the plane with me so I’ve got delicious and nutritious meals instead of the plane food. What are your favourite snacks / meals to take on the plane? I’m currently writing up a list and inspiration is always welcome.
