I love Thai food! But some dishes are heavy with refined starch (in the noodles) that can create inflammation in the body resulting in unwanted symptoms such as aches, pains, digestive issues and weight gain. 

This recipe uses carrots in place of the traditional noodles giving it a delicious and healthy twist!

Not only that, but it is also part of the 2020 From Scratch e-cookbook raising money for Thrive charity. Thanks to Janine Klinegal for creating and sharing this recipe!
