I absolutely LOVE pad thai…but when you are eating paleo, it’s definitely a challenge to make it paleo friendly between the rice noodles and the highly sugared sauce. Adapted from The Clothes that Make the Girl site, here’s my version of paleo pad thai! Power packed with veggies, good fats, and shrimp for protein…this meal definitely hits the paleo mark!


  • Cooked spaghetti squash
  • 2 zucchini, julienne sliced
  • 3 large carrots, julienne sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb raw shrimp
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 2 eggs scrambled
  • Spicy Asian sauce to taste


Cook the spaghetti squash in preheated oven to 350 degrees. Slice spaghetti squash in half lengthwise, clean out seeds, and place cut side down in baking dish. Fill baking dish with about 1 inch of water, cover loosely with foil and bake until soft. While the squash is cooking, sauté shrimp in coconut oil until cooked through, remove from heat. Sauté zucchini, carrots, green onions, and garlic in either coconut until cooked slightly. Add in spaghetti squash and shrimp and toss to cook together. Mix in the spicy Asian sauce for flavor.

Spicy Asian Nut Sauce


  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil


Mix all sauce ingredients together and stir to mix evenly.
