Pad Thai was a Friday night staple for me in college. This is a spin on one of the most popular Thai dishes, made with spaghetti squash and tons of veggies! To save time I like to chop my veggies and chicken ahead of time and set aside in the fridge until I want to prep this dish. I also used a food processor to slice the carrots and radishes very thinly.

    I like the little energy saving tips and adding your functional medicine notes. A vegan option would also be nice. I think I can figure that out myself… just sayin’. Not everyone is Paleo.

    Hi, I am wondering why the coconut aminos and fish sauce are eliminated on the anti-candida protocol.
