Yeah, I said it. OH MY GOD. I CAN'T.
That was my face when I tasted this. I've found the healthy eating jackpot.
More on that in just a second.
I did a quick 30 minute Zumba workout at home. I bounced around a lot. I burned 250 calories in just 30 minutes!
Carl walked right up to me while I was doing this super swaggy hip hop move, so I obviously worked in a petting a few times.
I looked straight up like Will Smith from Fresh Prince. No shame.
Now, back to food heaven. When I say this dish, that was sort of adapted from Can You Stay For Dinner's pad thai, has changed my life, that is NO exaggeration. Not only did it take 25 minutes, and not only is it under 400 calories for an entire giant plate, but it tasted almost EXACTLY like the pad thai I get from Mai's Thai. OMG. Let's get right to this.
One bag of cole slaw mix
1.5 tablespoons of sesame oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tsp garlic paste
3 packets of truvia
One big handful of mushrooms
One cup cooked chicken (you can use my easy baked chicken recipe here. Shred it up!)
3 packets of truvia
2 large eggs
Basil to taste
Roasted peanuts to top
Lime to garnish and squeeze onto finished product
Grab a big skillet or wok. Heat on stove to medium high heat. (I used 6 on my dial)
Pour in 1.5 tablespoons of sesame oil. Dump in entire bag of cole slaw mix into the pan. Cook for about 7 minutes, stirring pretty frequently to get the slaw nice and covered in the yummy oil.
After the 7 minutes, and the slaw is starting to cook down a bit, add in your handful of mushrooms and one heaping cup of shredded chicken. Continue stirring and cook about 3 more minutes.
Then add in your 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 packets of truvia and 1 teaspoon of garlic paste. Stir in well.
Lastly, break your two eggs straight into the mix and cook a few more minutes until eggs are scrambled and cooked into the pad thai.
Be nice and share this with your significant other or best friend. Or cat. Or don't share. Whichever.
Put half of it on a plate. And yes that's all for you. Because there are no noodles. And you can easily dominate half of this perfect pad thai and not even regret it for a second.
Hope this changes your life like it did mine!
So much yum.
