As you probably have heard, shirataki noodles are these miracle noodles since they're low in calories (as in zero calories!). They can be substituted for some noodle dishes.
I bought this regular shirtaki brand from an asian store and it doesn't use tofu like some brands do. I hope you guys enjoy this recipe. Well, I didn't measure out the ingredients. I eyeballed it instead. But, it still tastes good and you can adjust how much pb, soy sauce, or sriracha you want. If you like spicy, add more sriracha! It's a Thai inspired recipe.
- 1 pack of shirataki noodles, drained
- any veggies you like
For the sauce:
- pb2 or peanut butter
- water (if you're using pb2)
- soy sauce
- In a small bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients.
- Cook the shrimp and the veggies.
- Then, heat a nonstick pan and spray with nonstick spray. Place the noodles, shrimp and veggies in it.
- Mix in the sauce.
- Heat and stir the noodles as it is cooking. Cook for about 5 minutes.
- Take off the stove and enjoy.
Now, here's some eats I've been eating the past week. They're pretty delicious, if I say so myself.
I snacked on this Apple Cinnamon BelVita that my cousin gave me before I went to work.He said that he likes the Golden Oat better. He says that these tasted a little bland. He's right. There was a hint of cinnamon and some chewy spots in the cookie but other than that, it wasn't that special. The Blueberry one I tried was a lot better.
I also ate this Crunchy Macadamia Pineapple Rise Bar. I gave one to my mom a couple weeks ago to try and she didn't like it. But, the funny thing is that it's my favorite so far out of the other flavors I've tried. The texture is great and it's sweet but has a natural sweetness I like. The crunch comes from the Macadamia nuts in it. They were very generous with those. The nuts are spread well throughout the bar.
And, yes. Even I eat fast food once in a while. This is the Jalapeño Turkey Burger from Carl's Jr. Sad thing is, I think I wasted my calories and fat on this. It was only a decent burger. The sauce was really yummy though. I liked the spiciness but other than that, this burger had no real flavor to it.
I guess that's it for now! Oh yea. I attended a volunteer orientation today at a hospital .I'm so excited to start volunteering!
