Chicken Pad Thai with Mung Bean Noodles

These noodles are honestly my favorite new food! With 11g of fiber, 25g protein and a delicate texture that doesn't get mushy like so many other gluten-free pastas out there, this mung bean fettuccine pasta is AMAZING! Try this twist on a traditional pad thai that incorporates macadamia nuts.
