Thai food can sometimes have a bad reputation for being high in fat and sugar. A great way to indulge in your favourite foods without the worry is to make a healthy version at home.
This is a really simple Pad Thai recipe that has all the flavour but none of the bad stuff.
Customise it to your own tastes (try prawns or tofu instead of chicken; or more chilli if you like it hot).


  • 100g rice noodles
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 200g lean chicken breast, sliced
  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 cups of your favourite vegetables, such as onion, shallots, green beans, carrot, capsicum, snow peas, bean sprouts, baby corn
  • 1 egg and 1 additional egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons of oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 limes, 1 juiced and 1 quartered for serving.


  • Cook the rice noodles according to packet directions, then set aside.
  • Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the eggs and move around the pan until they are just set. Place to one side.
  • In the same pan, heat the rest of your oil. Add the garlic and chicken and cook for 2 minutes or until the chicken has browned slightly.
  • Add the chilli and the vegetables.  Steam the vegetables by pouring in ¼ cup of water.
  • Stir in the oyster sauce, fish sauce, lime juice and noodles. Mix well until well combined, then add the cooked egg.
  • Place in two bowls and serve with the additional lime wedges.

Krystle Allan has lost over 20kg on the challenges flash back friday weight loss results - Krystle Allan

Krystle says “The other day I posted my current photo and think I got a little down on myself. Then someone asked about my before photos and wow!! Over 20kg and stacks of cm’s!  What a change! Yes I do have more goals I want to achieve with toning but look how far i have come! Not only that but my confidence has grown so much!

I couldn’t recommend the Healthy Mummy smoothies any higher and wouldn’t have achieved this result without the 28 day weight loss challenge, smoothies, books and of course this group!
Thank you for keeping me on track!”
