Do you love pasta but don't want the carbs or calories?
This gluten free pasta is too good to be true!

But is the Noodle Healthy??
______________________________________________________________________________
The company address this question:

" Why Is This Noodle So Healthy?" According to the Noodle company,

"The answer to this questions lies in understanding the role of fiber in our diets. Our noodle is made mainly of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber acts to slow digestion. By doing this, it allows for the slower absorption of glucose and is the reason behind its beneficial effects in diabetes.

The soluble fiber found in the Miracle Noodle slows digestion and prolongs the sensation of fullness and is an essential part of any weight loss program. You also absorb more nutrients in the foods you eat with The Miracle Noodle due to the slowing of digestion. "

I have been really enjoying these noodles once or twice a week.
Want my favorite recipe for this noodle? If you write to Judee at
vegyid2@yahoo.com , I will send you my favortie sharataki noodle recipe!!

When using the noodles: My suggestion:

Make sure you rinse the noodle very well. The water in the packaging can have a slight odor that washes off. Then boil them for just one minute . Add them to a stir fry, add sauce etc.

Disclaimer: I have no association with the company and do not get any kickback for the product. I am simply reviewing and sharing my experience with gluten free products.
               The Noodle is called Miracle Noodle. It can be ordered on http://www.miraclenoodle.com/
