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!
