Apple Pie Oatmeal Protein Bars

I love packing nutrition into foods in different ways. Oatmeal is always a hit at our house, but sometimes a bar just feels like dessert (even when it isn’t).

PAD THAI RECIPE

Pad Thai Recipe – Some complex, but unique dishes are a beautiful concoction combined together to harmonize as one.

Pad Thai is one such rendition, where the savory, sour and sweet flavors complement each other gracefully. Stir-Fried Pad Thai Noodles tossed in an ocean of different kinds of ingredients, is a sensation of flamboyant cuisine (well, I fancy such words, in praise of their flavors)!
