Shrimp Pad Thai
Shrimp Pad Thai, an effortless yet exquisite meal. It’s a shame that a majority of us go for take-out when we can make these noodles right at home in less than 30 minutes. I know one thing for sure, this meal will be far healthier, and you can use whatever ingredients your heart desires within the making.
I have a variety of comfort foods that I savor, including these palatable noodles. I absolutely adore the combination of shrimps and noodles; Toss in some extraordinary, mouth-watering Thai sauce, and I will, for sure, dive right into the platter without question. I have a certain fondness toward food and love it, and I am not reluctant to say so…
We briskly consumed this with pleasure until the whole entire wok was completely devoured. At that moment, my husband passionately declared that I must make this dish weekly. Since I am now on the Keto Diet, it is exceedingly difficult for me to prepare my favorite foods for my family.
Every few hours, I do not fail to smell the pleasant and sweet aroma of pancakes with warm buttery maple syrup drizzled on top or begin to daydream of a delicious sandwich. One of the most strenuous meals to resist are these appetizing noodles.
I continue to stick with the diet through all of the strain and struggle because I have a goal and a purpose for why I am doing Keto, and truly wish to complete what I feel is only necessary for the bettering of myself.
Anyhow, I hope you guys like this one because we loved it. I tried to make it as authentic as possible, but, hey, it’s a food and it should be enjoyed whatever ingredients you use.
