For the past 6 months I have been cooking with shirataki noodles instead of regular pasta. Depending on which shirataki noodle you get, they can be anywhere from 0 to 20 cal. per serving instead of the regular 200 cal per serving for regular pasta. They taste like any other pasta...especially love using them with the "Hungry Girl" recipe for the Fettuccine Alfredo and adding chicken or shrimp with tons of veggies!
When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!
