Who doesn’t love an asian Pad Thai to mix things up? Not only do we love the flavours, but the soft noodle texture combined with a little nutty crunch makes this dish super satisfying. You also have the choice of whether you want to spice this up or keep it mild. Just remember, the spicier the dish the more this ramps up the fat burning effects. We know that this will be a winner no matter if it is just for you or the whole family.
