PALEO PAD THAI

So I'm a huge fan of thai food, and I'm literally addicted to pad thai.  When I lived in Bondi for a year with my best friend Melissa we had the most amazing thai restaurant next door to our place called Nina's Ploy Thai and we seriously went every weekend.  It was so bad, but so good!  Luckily I no longer live there because going paleo would have been near impossible.  I've seen a lot of versions of paleo pad thai floating around lately so I thought it was time I gave it a try as well.  Oh, and I'm also not a huge fan of spicy food so feel free to add in some chill if you like!
