Dr Jockers Comments

This zucchini noodle pad Thai is a wonderful low-carb, plant-based Thai recipe that is loaded with nutrition and tastes great.  Zucchini makes a great noodle texture and is low in carbohydrates so this is approved on a ketogenic diet plan.  If you are looking for a healthy Asian noodle recipe than you cannot get better than this!

Avocado oil has a high heat point, so it is acceptable to cook with.   Most Asian dishes use soy sauce and peanut sauces but we substituted these with coconut amino’s which are soy free and almond butter which is much better than peanut butter.

Peanut butter is very high in inflammatory omega 6 fatty acids and is considered a high mycotoxin food with high levels of afflatoxin.  There are some brands that are better than others, but in general, I recommend avoiding peanuts.  Soy is also high in afflatoxin and phytoestrogens and I recommend avoiding it.

This recipe has tons of phytonutonutrient rich foods such as broccoli, cilantro, garlic, lime juice and sprouted sunflower seeds.  Let us know how you enjoyed this in the comments section below.
