Last year I got the urge to eat a little more healthy and jumped on the Whole 30 bandwagon. After 30 days, I’d lost 20lbs and felt great. During that month, I needed to find ways to modify every day meals to fit the diet restrictions. Pinterest saved me. That’s where I found this great recipe for Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai!

This copycat P.F. Chang's recipe is delicious without the extra salt and calories that come from eating them at the chain restaurant. They're healthy, light, and tasty. The peanuts (and water chestnuts if you choose to add them) give it a nice crunchy texture and the homemade Asian sauce flavors the filling to perfection.

1 lb. ground chicken breast ( or I just cut 2 large chicken breasts into really small pieces with kitchen scissors )
1/2 onion ( minced )
salt & pepper
2 garlic cloves ( minced )
1? knob fresh ginger, peeled & minced (or 1/8 t. dry ginger)
2-1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 Tablespoon water
1/2 Tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce ( or more if you like it hotter )
dash of pepper
3 green onions ( chopped )
1/2-8oz can sliced water chestnuts, drained & chopped (I omitted these because I'm not a fan of them)
1/4 cup peanuts ( chopped )
10-12 large outer lettuce leaves ( rinsed and patted dry )
