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!
I finally tried these SHIRATAKI noodles that are pure fiber no calories, wheat free, gluten free AMAZING they take the flavor of whatever you cook it with They are transcluscent though so at first they seem odd Highky recommend them140
I buy a lot fresh veggies when I go grocery shopping. They make great quick healthy snacks. And when I'm craving an easy healthy meal, I toss 'em in a fry pan with some olive oil and make an easy stir-fry.
Stir-fried veggies go great over ramen noodles, I leave out the seasoning packet because all the sodium.
