Well Fed Pad Thai

Recommended Posts

I have been eyeing that page! I did make the "Sunshine Sauce" that is the basis of her pad thai, so I have an inkling for what's in store. The sauce does taste very peanutty!

I haven't made either yet, I just bought well fed. I'm so excited to try all sorts of things out of it! I generally cook the way she does, prepping ahead, etc. so all of her stuff makes so much sense to me. Even her bowl thing, my grandmother had a wonderful ceramic bowl that I've looked to find for ages.

I love it so much, but for whatever reason I can't get behind spaghetti squash. I just double up the snap peas and cut them into thin strips! I might have to try it with zucchini noodles, though, that sounds great!

Well Fed should come in the mail for me today. I have a bag of sunflower seeds that I won't eat on their own... This might have to happen this weekend.

Awesome! This is on my list of things I'd like to make during this round of Whole30. I made Sunshine Sauce before and wasn't impressed, so this time I'm gonna try it with almond butter instead and see if I like that.

I don't have well Fed yet! Can someone share the recipe here?

A lot of her recipes are posted on her blog, "The Clothes Make the Girl". Here's the recipe: http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/2011/05/08/paleo-pad-thai/

I'm planning on trying it Saturday. I may try using almond butter for the Sunshine Sauce, because I wasn't too fond of the Sunshine Sauce the last time I made it. I'm also going to substitute shredded cabbage for the snap peas because I don't really like snap peas.

Made this last night! It was as delicious as promised. So far, I have not had a "miss" from this cookbook. They are all truly well-crafted recipes, and they are making the W30 a taste adventure!

I made this recipe last night exactly as the recipe states, except I made sunshine sauce with cashew butter and added red peppers and zucchini to the stirfry. It was fantastic- my husband loved it so much he viewed it as an act of devotion that I let him take the only leftovers for lunch today. I loved it so much I made a quicky stirfry for dinner with all the same flavors but just thrown together in the pan. Yum. Yum. May have to get her book!

Hmmmmm... This recipe seems to universally loved. I didn't really like it... Was just a bit of a dull, gloppy mess to me. I ate it, but it wasn't anything fab.... At this point I'm thinking I messed it up somehow.., cause really EVERYONE loves it.

Don't worry Tracy, everyone's tastes are different. I've never made this recipie but my guilty secret is, no matter how much everyone raves about it, :ph34r: I really don't like the taste of ghee :ph34r:

Ha! I got some pure cultured ghee....? Ick. I use it in a few things when the flavor won't really show up because the other flavors are so strong I've used another one from whole foods I like better, but it takes some getting used to! I'm not a huge fan either. Also the first time I cooked with coconut oil... It smelled like I was cooking everything in hand lotion. That was a weird weird moment. I like it now though

I haven't tried ghee yet. I cannot stand unrefined coconut oil. Can.not. stand. it. I have a jar and I can't even open it. But the refined stuff (which has no smell) is the new black. Really.
