Skinny Noodles areÂ shirataki noodles, made from an Asian root called konnyaku or konjac. Â They are not only gluten-free, but also weight loss and diabetic friendly because they are low calorie and low carb with 0 fat. Â They are quite filling, too, as I have had to share mine with the kids lately since the baby is taking up too much room. Â 🙂
Skinny Noodles’ biggest drawback is that they smell kind of fishy. Â But after you’ve rinsed them for a couple of minutes (and especially once you add some sauce or something), the smell disappears.
And no carbs! Â They don’t cause my blood sugar to go up at all. Â They are a firm noodle, not falling apart as you eat them. Â They don’t have a lot of flavor to them, so they go well with just about anything.
Two days ago, I enjoyed (immensely) a wonderful, fast lunch with Skinny Noodles Spinach Fettucine, alfredo sauce, some leftover rotisserie chicken from Sam’s Club, and some parmesan. Â Oh, it was nice (and easy on my blood sugar!). Â It took me less than 5 minutes to prepare, too. Â Carter and Corice love them, also, though I mostly keep them for myself (hey, I’m the one watching my blood sugar). Â They are one of the rare things I enjoy eating these days.
Skinny Noodles also come in Angel Hair, Macaroni, and “Rice” varieties.
