Skinny Noodles Shirataki Review

I had the chance to try out Skinny Shirataki Noodles, and I have to say that I am pretty impressed! Zero calories and fat, low carbs and gluten free. What's not to love?

I first tried using these noodles with some chicken broth that I had. I wanted to make a quick and easy lunch, so I figured that was a great way to try out the noodles. When you first open them, they do have this odor that is a bit pungent. The directions say to drain (they come in liquid), rinse (which I did multiple times in cold water), and then parboil to rid the smell. I did all that, and there still was still that smell, although no way near as bad. I finally had my lunch ready, and added them into my chicken broth. To me, it had a similar type of texture to ramen noodles, with a ever so slight crunch. They are pretty much flavorless, so whatever you put them in, that's what they will taste like. Made a nice lunch and I noticed that instead of having that heavy full feeling like I get after eating pasta products, I did not experience that, which was lovely.

For my next trial, I used the angel hair noodles in a stir fry, and let me tell you, they were fantastic! Again, no flavor, so they simply tasted like the stir fry sauce. But they cooked nicely, and worked very well with my meal. 

So, what is a Skinny Shirataki Noodle made from? They are made from a root native to Asia called konnyaku or konjac. They are great for weight loss and diabetic friendly!

If you are looking for a way to get away from pasta, but still want some of those classic pasta dishes, I would highly recommend giving the Skinny Shirataki Noodles a try!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
