Miraclenoodles arrived.- Day #1

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

I ordered online Sunday and the noodles came Wed. by US. Postal Service. In the previous blog, I explained that this vegetable is a pasta replacement with zero calories. It works for the "Clean Eating" team.

After my day at a workshop, I did my elliptical time and then opened the box of 20 separate 7 oz. plastic bags. Directions said to put the noodles (packed in water) into a colander to drain and rinse with cool water. Next, it said to boil (blanche) for a few minutes. I added salt since I read the noodles are flavorless and take on whatever seasoning you add.

The appearance is like angel hair pasta, but clear like a gel. It turned whiter as it boiled. I'll experiment with recipes, but tonight the rest of the family had regular spaghetti. I put normal spaghetti sauce over the miraclenoodles. I will have to get used to the texture which bordered on boiled sprouts. As I ate, I reminded myself, "zero calories."

Supposedly, this one serving size will expand in my stomach, so I won't want to snack. My plan is to have the noodles in some recipe every dinner until they run out in 20 days. That will lower my calorie intake.

I can see it now--Thar's boiled noodles-- You can barbecue em, broil em, bake em, saute em. Dey's uh, noodle gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's Alfredo noodles, stroganoff noodles, mushrooms with noodles and chicken noodle soup. That- that's about it.

I'll report again. Anybody who has tried these, chime in with your experiences.
Happy Sparking

    I've tried the shirataki noodles before (also used only once and it was a new recipe) and did not like them. Let me know how more of your recipes with them turn out! I'm not sure I enjoyed the taste!
