Maybe you have to like tofu (a bland soy product very high in protein) but I do like shiratake noodles which I finally found at a local Japanese/Korean grocery store. A large serving of 8 ounces is only 40 (CORRECTED!!!) calories and "reminds" me of noodles but, of course, not exactly the same as they are not made with starchy ingredients like wheat or rice flour.
I am cooking some for breakfast and the rest of the package is going into my lunch. One thing nice is that they are low in sodium, only 15 mg in a 4-oz serving.
I was going to buy them on line but the shipping makes them ridiculously expensive, so I am glad to have found them. The trick is to find a Japanese or Korean grocery store and those are far and few between in Minnesooota, the land of Swedes and Norwegians (mostly), but I am neither....
