Konjac Shirataki Strips - My Quest for Zero Calorie Food
Sunday, December 09, 2012
We are getting into the holiday spirit and got our tree up tonight!
Imagine that you are perfectly content with every aspect your life. What does that life look like? What steps do you have to take to make that life a reality? Instead of WISHING, start DOING. Put a plan into action today!
I am content with my life now. Yes I wish I was slimmer and healthier, but I focused on making my house a home, settling in here, making friends, being more patient with others and being happy with what I have.
Of course I do keep looking for new ways to lose weight, and Konjac Shirataki Strips are my latest discovery. Tonight I had a single serving of beef tortellini with cream tomato sauce (fewer calories than Alfredo), a serving of Konjac, and sauted - mushrooms, onions, zuchinni. Dessert - fruit. The 120 gram package of Konjac Shirataki Strips is 12 calories! Konjac has almost no calories so it is often used as a diet food. It is easy to find in the Oriental section of the grocery store.

Ingredients for dinner.
I splurged and bought a precut fruit platter from Costco - water melon, honey dew, cantalope, pineapple and grapes. I want to have this on the table with every meal. This is the time of year it is so easy to nibble on chocolates, candies and baked treats. I want this to be the December I have no weight gain, so I am including healthy treats like fruit.
Today I mapped my walk around the block which is .75K, then walked Kali to time it. I maintain a consistent pace of 5K an hour.
