Easy and Delicious Pad Thai

Who doesn't love getting a new and healthy meal idea that can suit the whole family. Well if the whole family likes noodles that is. If your kids are anything like mine then noodles and anything always works a treat. This recipe gives you the option of adding any protein that suits you and your family. I would personally choose to add prawns to my Pad Thai but I know my children would always choose the chicken option and the hubby would be a beef man always.

We add a couple of eggs in too, so there are good protein levels in this dish.
