I have been wanting to eat healthy and with that means eating less processed carbohydrates. I have so many good recipes, Pho Ga being my favorite, but these require noodles. There is one noodle that I have had that has no carbohydrates! They are shirataki noodles and can typically be found in the produce section of the grocery store. They are found in a bag full of water. Unfortunately, they can be expensive, they can have extra ingredients that are not favorable, and many times they are not in stock. So what do you do? You don't have to go noodle-less!

If you are like me, you probably imagined some complex process being required to make shirataki noodles. I imagined farmers cutting up a Konjac Root and going through some family tradition that had been passed down from generation to generation.

What I didn't realize is that I had all the ingredients that I needed in my pantry!

There is not much required to make shirataki noodles at home! This means if you all the sudden decide to make spaghetti, Chicken Lo Mein, chicken noodle soup, and so many other recipes that you can make it on plan.

Why even eat these noodle? I'm happy you asked.

Glucomannan has so many health benefits and it is the key ingredient required for making shirataki noodles. It has been known to lower total cholesterol. That means even the bad kind, LDL. Glucomannan is a great filler food. It will make you fill full for a good amount of time. It is loaded with fiber, so it aids in digestion. If you deal with constipation, add some glucomannan to your daily diet. Another wonderful benefit is that it lowers your blood glucose levels, which is so very important.

So how do you make these noodles at home?

I am going to share with you two different recipes. I have made a short video walking you through all the step. I hope this helps you on your health journey!

We've all probably heard of the phrase "sharing is caring" as we were growing up. As years have gone by and maturity has increased, I am sure that we can look back and see that this is not always the case.

Some things are best not shared!

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report: if there be ANY virtue, if there be ANY praise, THINK on these things.” Philippians 4:8

My hope here is to share in a way that is caring! To share by pointing to the honest, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous, and praise worthy things.

I know life doesn't always look lovely, good...etc.

"This is what the past is for us! Every EXPERIENCE God gives us, every PERSON he puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future only God can see." Corrie Ten Boom

It is here that I plan to be more "raw" but in a good way. This blog is a work-in-progress or more accurately a life-in-progress! Overall, my hope is that you will be encouraged!

It is a New Year and naturally, I can help but reflect over the year 2022. I have so much that I am thankful for. 2022 completed my 3rd year of running my business. My 2nd eldest entered his Senior year of high school and will be graduating in May of 2023. My eldest, Nate the Great, is making amazing progress. He learned to read last year. He has done much more than doctors and specialist believed he could do, since he was diagnosed with low-functioning autism 17 years ago. We moved this year. It was about 500 feet from where we were, but we moved! It still was hard work! In 2022, I celebrated 21 years married to my love. God is so good!

There are so many areas where I need to grow & change!

One of the several areas is.....

Health! I have noticed with growing my business and being busy with homeschooling my boys, that some important things have been neglected. For me is a few simple words, but are easier said than done because they require some sort of discipline. They are eat healthy & exercise.

So what am I doing? When it comes to eating healthy, I am learning and eating the Trim Healthy way. You know that I love science, so when I read about the book "Trim Healthy Mama" the science behind it made sense. I am sure I will do more posts or maybe an educational video on the basics behind the Trim Healthy way of eating.

For exercise, I decide to not do anything drastic of crazy. I wanted something simple. I know myself, I have made crazy hard goals before and failed within weeks. I am not going to repeat that. So my goal is to walk a mile each day and move my body. It doesn't take that much time out of my day. Plus, I have had a treadmill folded up for years not being used.

That's my goal and I'm stickin' to it!

I have too many precious people in my life to not make health a priority. I am sure that I will share my journey & recipes that I learn along the way.

What goals did you set for 2023?
