wpid-IMG_20130311_204207.jpgI miss my old Thai restaurants in Wisconsin and Guam. Great people and food. So, I’m trying to find ways to make the food and stay on plan. Tonight, I discovered the perfect Pad Thai. You will have to add some more healthy fat to your meal. But, this is terrific!


1 1/3 pound Pork Tenderloin
15 ounces Tofu, Firm
2 tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 teaspoons Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons PB2
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 cup Cilantro leaves, fresh
1 Spaghetti Squash
1 cup Green Onions, chopped
3 cups Bean Sprouts, fresh
2 teaspoons Olive Oil


Cut the squash in fourths and scoop the seeds out. Boil til done. Remove pulp from rind and press water out in a colander. Set aside. Cut the tofu and pork into cubes. In a large skillet or wok, heat the fish sauce, soy sauce, garlic, 1 tablespoon of PB2 and red pepper. Add the pork, tofu, green onions and cilantro. Cook til pork is done. The tofu will soak up all the flavor making it super yummy. Pour into a medium bowl. Place the oil in the pan and heat to medium. Add the squash, 1 tablespoon PB2 and sprouts and cook til sprouts soften. Plate shown is one meal.

4 Servings
Per Serving = 1 Lean, 3 Greens, 1/4 Snack, 2 Condiments (per TSFL)
