My experience with Kelp Noodles!!

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Last week when I was grocery shopping I saw something in the organic section at Wegmans called, Kelp noodles. I've been trying to limit my consumptions of breads and pastas so I thought it might be nice to try.

They don't require cooking and you can eat them right out of the bag. So, last night, I finally opened them up and tried them...

Right out of the bag, they are crunchy and have absolutely no taste at all. I mean NO TASTE at all. Of course, it says that on the packaging but I had to see for myself. It's a weird sensation to be eating something that has no taste. This is what they look like in a bowl... it's about 3 ounces of the noodles in this bowl:

These noodles are super low in calories... only 6 calories per 4 ounces!

But, the plan was never to eat them plain... I bought them to try with spaghetti sauce, and that's what I poured over them last night. They just absorb the flavor of whatever you mix them with and they become soft and the crunch disappears. So, if your sauce or broth is good, the noodles will be good. And mine was good! :-)

    I really like the kelp noodles. I can only get them on-line as we don't have any place here that carries them. I sometimes cut them and put them into stir fries. I'm trying to limit my carbs and starches also.

    Sounds amazing...
I have never heard of them, had to find out what kelp is on the internet, and learned it is sea weed. I guess they must be rich in nutrients, other than calories.
