Miracle Noodles – The Zero Calorie Pasta!?!

Shirataki Noodles

Yes, the Gods have finally answered my prayers….a ZERO calorie pasta has been created! When I first heard about Miracle Noodle and their no-calorie Shirataki noodles, I was hesitant to believe it was possible to have pasta that has no calories, yet my interest was piqued. I knew I had to try it. After reading through Miracle Noodle’s website, I learned a lot about these special Shirataki noodles.

So you wind up with gluten-free, calorie-free, low-carb pasta! Granted, the texture of these noodles is a bit different than regular pasta, but the taste is good, they are quite filling, and you can use these in a such wide variety of recipes. And when you think of the calories you’re saving, it’s a fantastically fair trade.
