GREAT NEWS! I just found out that these noodles are made with glucomannan which can help you lose weight!!! Read it here: http://www.shiratakinoodles.net/lose-weight.html
Here’s another pasta alternative… Tofu Shirataki Noodles. This one is made out of tofu so it’s not soy-free like Miracle Noodles, but it’s still very low in carbs (3g per serving) and packed with protein. These noodles are more accessible, too. I found a 2-serving package in the refrigerated section at Safeway or Lucky for around $2. Can’t beat that! And you don’t have to pay for shipping. So I buy these noodles any time I need to.
I love Vietnamese Pho but I’d rather skip the noodles. What I like to do is place an order to-go from my favorite pho restaurant and ask for “no noodles” (and sometimes double meat), and while my hubby is out picking up our order, I quickly rinse and blanch my tofu noodles so by the time he gets home all I do is pour them into my soup and I’m ready for dinner!
