Rainbow pad thai

A great way to bring more veg to your table, this rainbow pad Thai is super-quick, fuss-free and beyond delicious.

One of my fertility-friendly food habits is to eat a rainbow everyday. This simple pad Thai recipe will help you to do just that. It’s bursting with colour, flavour and goodness. If you want something super-quick, nutritious and delicious then look no further.

Warning: the spicy almond sauce is super addictive! If you’d like to add something extra, you could throw in some shredded cooked chicken for an extra protein boost.
