The Thai Classic, with More Good and Less Bad
We love salty and sweet Pad Thai, which delivers a contrast of textures, from soft noodles to crunchy peanuts. Though it can be unhealthy (a typical takeout box can contain 1,140 calories and 7 grams of saturated fat), making your own 460-calorie version is easy. Just pile on hearty vegetables and use fewer rice noodles (which nutritionists say are a waste of calories).
