Pad Thai with Kelp Noodles

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This salad is vegan, raw, paleo, gluten free, low carb and delicious! Kelp noodles don’t taste like seaweed but instead have a mild flavor that can easily go with an array of seasonings, like this Asian-inspired dish. Kelp noodles contain many amazing nutrients such as fiber, iodine and calcium. Try them as a healthy alternative to regular high-carbohydrate white noodles.
