Can we talk about how much I love Vietnamese food pho a minute? (hehe)
But seriously, I love how vietnamese food has so many different flavors and herbs that make your taste buds sing. Also, most of it *can* be super cheap to make because really, its all in the fresh ingredients you toss on the top. Its just delicious.
One of my favorite comfort foods is Pho. Pho is a vietnamese soup consisting of a delicious broth, rice noodles, some meat and topped off with fresh herbs. One of my most favorite bowls of Pho is at Elizabeth St. Cafe in Austin, Texas. I just love that restaurant and their lemongrass chicken pho is TDF.
I really wanted to turn my favorite bowl of pho into a Whole30 compliant version. I’ve seen a few paleo bloggers use spiralized daikon in place as noodles and so I decided to use that instead of zoodles (zucchini noodles). It is a great noodle replacement and the pho turned out fantastic! If you can’t find daikon, feel free to use whatever spiralized veggie you want. Pretty sure they’ll all be good in it!

Thai food is just the best. Its spicy (#1 in my book) and it uses so many fresh herbs that make your taste buds freak out in the most wonderful way. I just cannot get enough of it!
Larb Gai is one of my husband and my all time favorite dishes. It’s quick to make and has so many delicious flavors. Plus, it’s super healthy!
I like to make my Larb with ground pork, but you can also use ground turkey, chicken, or beef if you’d prefer. With the delicious umami flavor from the fish sauce and lime, the heat from the thai chiles, and the freshness from all of the herbs… it really doesn’t matter which meat you choose because it’s all good.
