Healthy Thai Satay Sauce Recipe

One of my favorite dipping sauces in the world is a beautiful, smooth and totally decadent satay sauce. Char-grilled morsels of meat are dipped into the sauce and coat your tongue causing your taste buds to do happy dances all the way to your belly.

Satay sauce, however, is SUPER bad for you… darn that full-fat peanut butter, coconut milk and brown sugar!!

So what do I do? I lament my misfortune, of course, but the restriction gets me thinking … how can I make a healthy version of this famous Thai sauce and work it into my weekly meal prep?

Taking inspiration from this gorgeous sauce, this post is more of a meal idea than a full-fledged recipe.

This healthy peanut satay dressing is made from PB2 and is super useful when I need an extra dose of flavor (and willpower!).

It helps me stick to my goals, use up my remaining leftovers and with the addition of shirataki noodles – it also keeps my total carb count low!! What more could you ask for at the end of the week?
