½ teaspoon chopped ginger
½ cup chopped yellow onion

2 T. fresh lime juice
1 T. coconut aminos

Instructions

1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

2. Cut spaghetti squash into 1 ½ inch thick rings.

3. Gently scrape out the seeds in the middle of each ring.

4. Drizzle with olive oil and add salt and pepper.

5. Place on baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, turning after about 15 minutes.

6. Allow squash rings to cool for about 15 minutes, then peel the skin away and use a fork to separate the strands.

7. While squash is roasting, make the chili almond sauce by adding all sauce ingredients into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth and set aside.

8. Chop raw chicken breasts into 1-inch chunks.

9. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with 1 T. oil.

10. Add chicken to the skillet and liberally season with sea salt and pepper.

11. Cook, stirring often until all sides are golden and chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.

12. When finished cooking, transfer to a plate and set aside.

13.  Add remaining 2 teaspoons of oil to the same skillet and sauté together ginger, onion, bell pepper and carrots.

14. Cook until veggies start to soften, about 5-6 minutes.

15. Add chicken back to the skillet with the veggies. Then add the chili almond sauce and mix everything together thoroughly.

16. Add spaghetti squash to the skillet and mix again.  If your skillet isn’t large enough, you can put everything in a large bowl to mix instead.

17. Serve the spaghetti squash pad Thai immediately with green onions, fresh cilantro and lime wedges for garnish. Top with chopped almonds.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
