Chili Garlic Rice Noodles with Bok Choy and Shrimp!

Noodles plus shrimp and Thai inspired flavors always equal happiness in my family. This dish is not only pretty, but it is full of delicious umami flavors and is GLUTEN FREE. Also, you can feel good about eating this noodle dish. Unfortunately, a lot of Thai noodle dishes in restaurants are full of salt and sugar. However, my recipe allows you to have the flavors of a restaurants while also being healthy for your body.
