To be honest, I have kept pasta off my diet but was on the hunt for a low calorie, gluten-free, no-guilt pasta. This is what I found!
I found Pasta Zero Shirataki Noodles. They are made primarily from yam flour and water. Pasta Zero Shirataki Noodles contain ten times fewer carbohydrates than the average serving of pasta. Unlike other shirataki noodles, Pasta Zero also contain chickpea flour giving the noodles a “real pasta” taste and texture without excess carbs or calories. At only 20 calories per serving, Pasta Zero lets you get creative in the kitchen with sauces and recipes while preparing figure-sexy-friendly meals.
Even though I’m not a no-carb-kinda-gal, it’s nice to know that there is an alternative when I need to make meals that are low carb. I get asked a lot for suggestions on recipes with unique ingredients. This recipe is with elk meat, a request from a fan, but you are welcomed to use any lean protein choice such as: beef, chicken, or shrimp.
Remember, this product is NOT an open-and-serve product. It’s a “close-your-nose-and-rinse-the-hell-out-of-it” product. Once rinsed, its perfect and can be used in everything to Pad Tai, soups, stir fry, spaghetti, & salads.
This has worked for several of my clients. Especially when trying to transform into a healthy fit lifestyle, so give it a try and love to hear recipe suggestions along with any questions you may have about living a fit & sexy lifestyle.
