I shaved my legs. Now they itch. I hate using old razors. Stupid poor decisions.

I’ve been listening to A LOT of music lately. And I only do this when I’m REALLY happy. I wonder what it is…hmmm. I have two songs I keep playing on repeat. The first song is this intense. If you don’t like house music, then don’t take a gander. If you do, I like you. We should hang out. And go dancing. And the second song is a song my girlfriend Sam introduced me to. Good ole’ Pat Noonan and his wonderful YouTube music is pretty epic to listen to. What a badass. Hey Pat, would you mind letting me borrow your video man. I don’t know how to make videos. Or edit them. Or upload them. Or post them. Kcoolthanks.

Speaking of videos, I’m thinking about making some cooking videos!! That’s why I need Pat Noonan. Come on bro. But with videos, you guys can fully know how awkward I am when it comes to cooking AND being on video. GENIUS. Then you can see my frightening kitchen. I’ll clean it before I make a video. Ugh. Maybe I’ll make nut butter so it’s really easy to hear me. I don’t know. Now I’m just nervous.

I need to go dancing this weekend. I need to feel some beats in my soul. When I was younger, I used to go dancing Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Every.Week. I would literally dance until I was dripping sweat. And I’ve talked about how sweaty I am. Imagine me on an extremely crowded dance floor with creepy ass dudes. I would sweat bullets trying to dance away from those bros. But my dance life had decreased. Probably because most clubs are for 18 year olds and I’m not looking to bump and grind on some child boy. Oh, that comment is going to get me in trouble.

Speaking of child boys, it’s my wod partners birthday today. He’s actually a man. Gettin’ up there. Happy Birthday Jason. May your day be filled with carrot cake cupcakes. It will be. I made them. Lucky bastard.

Did you know Valentine’s Day is coming up? That’s f*ckin stupid.


Thai Pork and Noodles

  • Prep Time: 25 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4-5 1x


  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1lb chopped pork
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
  • 1 tablespoon siracha chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper, to taste

To garnish:

  • bundle of green onions
  • bundle of cilantro
  • 34 carrots, shredded
  • sliced almonds, to top


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut your spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise, then use a spoon to remove the excess strings and seeds.
  3. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until spaghetti squash is tender.
  4. While your squash is cooking, pull out a large skillet and place under medium heat with your 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and your minced garlic cloves.
  5. Add your yellow to the pan to sweat for a couple minutes.
  6. Now add your chopped pork and saute to get the pork browned on all sides.
  7. Once pork has browned a bit, add your coconut milk, almond butter, and the rest of the ingredients, other than the garnish.
  8. Stir all ingredients together until the almond butter begins to break brown and you get more of a sauce.
  9. Cover to let simmer, keeping an eye on it to stir if the sauce begins to thicken to much.
  10. Once spaghetti squash is done cooking, use a fork to pull the threads out and place them directly to the pan with your pork and sauce.
  11. Mix to combine.
  12. Place in bowl and top with green onions, cilantros, almonds, and carrots!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. When you were younger? Jesus Juli, I almost forgot how OLD you’re getting. Lock it up lady! I say just jump right into the videos. You’ll do fine.

  2. Pretty pumped to make this. You are a genius. And hysterical. I need to go dancing and feel some beats in my soul too. Valentines Day is a terrible idea.

  3. Hi Juli! Stumbled on your blog and am looking forward to trying some of these awesome Paleo recipes! If you don’t mind, what fish sauce do you use?

  4. Old? Like 23? Go get some dancing. Waive your arms big. Best Valentine’s Day I ever had was when the jeweler called me to tell me he was able to re-sell my ex’s ring. True story.

  5. Back in the day I used to go out dancing and sweating all.the.time, never caring how soaked and gross I was. Ahhh, good times. I think you still have it in you, you just need to find better clubs (i.e., with males older than 18 but younger than midlife men who’ve just divorced and are on the prowl). My dancing in public days are behind me, because now when people my age try to bust it on the dance floor they look pathetic, and I don’t want to be “that guy” (gal).

  6. Hey Juli!! I’m honored to have gotten a shout out in your post, you rock!! If you ever have any questions or want any help getting started with making videos I’m totally here for you, I’d be happy to do anything I can to help 🙂

  7. I think I want to be you when I grow up… Not in a weird way……………………… I think you maybe only have a year or two on me, but still, it’s a goal of mine.

  8. i <3 this song. majorly. always have. i can't dance for crap but i enjoy watching others while i do the 'night at the roxbury' head bob.

    i'm married and still think v-day is the suck.

  9. this was OMG delicious. I am a huge fan of anything Thai like… I think I can eat the whole pan to myself. Thank u for the wonderful recipe

  10. I have everything, except the fish sauce. The health food store has promised they’d get it three weeks straight…I’ve given up and am ordering it on Amazon. But it’s twice as much bc of shipping. LAME. Should I wait to make it or just try it without it?

  11. I just started reading your blog! I <3 it! I'm going to give this recipe a shot. Also – vday is ridic…but I've got a funny valentine I can bring you when I come to xfit Monday. 🙂

    Happy Thurzballs tomorrow!

  12. just had to let you know that this curry “wow’ed” me so much, i made a double batch tonight.. it’s so good, i hate to share it with anyone. lol

  13. Went to dig in the US Wellness freezer supply and ground chicken came out instead of pork, but it still turned out to be ‘killer-awesome’!! Thanks, Juli, you totally rock!

  14. I would probably eat this 7 days a week and be happy with it. F’ING DELICIOUS. I cooked pork tenderloin in a pressure cooker for an hour and then shredded it instead of using chopped pork. Highly recommend it.

  15. OMG this was delicious! I made it for my non-paleo parents, and my dad was practically licking the bowl. They are now totally impressed by me and my cooking steez. Thank you so much!

  16. My mom and I just started eating paleo, and this was our first Paleomg meal and it was awesome! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes and for the cookbook 🙂

  17. Girl….you NAILED it with this recipe! Any primal/paleo folks out there who get to jonesing for some Pad Thai…MAKE THIS DISH. Glad I found Paleomg! Keep rockin’ the recipes chica!

  18. Your site is the first I visit when searching for new recipes (having gone paleo a bit over a year ago). THIS recipe was the best I’ve tried in awhile. While I’m not necessarily looking forward to running a calorie count, I AM looking forward to nomming down the leftovers.

  19. ok, so i’m an addict. LOL… this has GOT to be the most popular and favorite recipes of all time. I’ve made it so many times, but it never ceases to please my palate. luv luv luv it.. ty

  20. My family and I have recently changed over to a paleo diet and we have been pleased with the recipes on this site. But this Thai pork and noodles has become the family favorite. Thank you for sharing and keep the great recipes coming. With recipes like this my 7 yr old son has had no problem transitioning to the new diet, he actually wants me to make this for his birthday.
