Paleo Pad Thai Salad. Who Needs A Takeaway Anyway?


I love Thai food and one of the things I miss most on the Paleo diet is my favourite; Pad Thai. This recipe is a great alternative and you know I think I actually prefer it to the original now. It tastes great and it doesn’t leave you feeling as full as the real thing!
