Easy Pad Thai

The Recipe: Easy Pad Thai

The Nitty Gritty: I’m generally pretty confident going into a gnom-gnom recipe. I could do without all the flashing bits and pop up videos, but the recipes have been solid. I made this recipe almost exactly as written, however I did increase the shrimp to a full pound to increase the protein levels per serving. This recipe serves 2.

I followed the directions as written, except I didn’t dry my shrimp quite enough so instead of scrambling the eggs in the same pan, I did use another. Next time I’ll pay better attention and hopefully will be able to do it in the same pan.

The Bottom Line: I enjoyed this recipe and will definitely make again. Each serving is only roughly 400 calories and the fat content is low. So I did notice not feeling satiated like one of my regular meals. Next time I will think about pairing with a side with some fat to combat this.
