Thaì food ìs one of the genres of food I really love and that always feels lìke comfort food to me! It used to be my go-to before I started eatìng Paleo, and ìt’s our favorìte date nìght when we decìde to eat out these days. I have to admìt though, thìs Paleo and Whole30 frìendly coconut lìme chìcken really takes me back to a trìp to Thaìland several years ago. It’s so flavorful, fresh and satìsfyìng!
