How often do you get your “five a day”?  Servings of fruit and vegetables, that is. We eat pretty darn healthy the majority of the time, but there are still days when I know we didn’t quite meet the mark.  I start out almost every single day with a big green smoothie for breakfast which definitely starts things out on the right foot. But sometimes throughout the day, the best intentions deteriorate and it can be so easy to give in to an “easier” choice, even if it isn’t the healthiest option.

These pad thai salads are a great way to up your veggie intake.  A heap of crisp, fresh veggies take place of the noodles normally included in pad thai.  I topped our salads with a ginger-lime shrimp because the kids love anything involving shrimp (or most seafood, really) and this went over extremely well.  This is a fresh and filling dinner that also happens to be light and healthy, quick and easy, and gets you a whole lot closer to meeting your five a day.  What’s not to love?
