Shirataki Noodles Mmm!

I love to try new foods. When I find one with almost no calories , low carb and gluten free I get so excited. House Foods Tofu Shirataki Noodles fit the bill. First you will have to get over the smell. Do not eat them by themselves. Do in a soup or with a sauce. I did mine in a egg drop/ hot and sour soup concoction I made up for lunch. For dinner I used a peanut sauce. It worked well with both recipes. You must follow instructions. Rinse them because they smell like fish. Then put in the microwave for a minute and dry them. I read reviews where people complained of the texture but not a problem for me. Has anybody else used these? What did you think?

I’ve been trying some Vegan recipes for breakfast lately and driving my 9 y/o nuts! Its the smell! I made a tofu scramble yesterday with onion ,garlic,nutritional yeast and soy sauce. She pulled out the Lysol! This morning it was tofu scramble latin style with garlic ,onions and cilantro. She added the fan to the Lysol. Mom what happened to oatmeal? This stuff stinks!!! Oh well I guess she can eat upstairs. I’m keeping my tofu!!!

Ok, so I’m down for trying new things especially if they are healthy. I made a trip to Whole Paycheck I mean foods:). I went to the  Whole Foods Sacramento store. I was in town for a family event.Wow ,I love this store. So much more variety than the San Ramon one. I decided to try Lighten up 3 Grain Tempeh. Ewe ! Yuck that was gross. I cooked according to directions. I’ll stick to tofu. I love tofu. I’m trying a few other things. Amazing Grass’s Amazing Meal. It has protein, fruits and vegetables.  You can mix with water milk or juice. I’ll probably try milk . I don’t drink juice. I’ve never been a fan. I really don’t like sweet stuff  except for chocolate . I think it will be good for a snack. I’ll keep you posted. I didn’t buy the big bottle just single packs. My daughter liked the fruit and veggie section.We left with bananas, golden raspberries and  Barbara’s peanut butter cereal. It was time to go when she hit the cheese department. Mom I hate this part! It stinks. What are your new food finds?
