Keto Pad Thai Salad

How to Make Pad Thai Salad

With spring here, peanuts and smoked tofu for the keto pad thai saladthere is an increased need to find lighter options and foods that could come along on a picnic. I like pad thai but the noodles pose a problem on a keto diet. A compromise is to make this with shirataki noodles (aka yam noodles) and prep it so that it can be served cold. I really like the noodles made with a mix of yam noodles and tofu.

While this is a large dish, it’s calorie count is approximately 614 calories per person. In cold numbers, it is 8% carbs, 70% fat and 22% protein; but 6 of the 15g of carbohydrates are fibre and a lot of keto people discount carbs that double as fibre. Taking fibre into account, it looks more like 6% carbs, 72% fat and 22% protein. If someone were really needing to tune this to hit the ideal rations, adding more fat by adding another tablespoon of sesame oil it adjust the ratios to 5.5%, 74% and 20.5% respectively.
