Cut out the Carbs
It’s no secret that processed carbs (bad carbs) should be avoided—they’re loaded with empty calories, extra sugar and can lead to unwanted weight gain. Unfortunately, common foods we crave such as noodles and bread are two of the biggest leading bad carb culprits.
To make matters even trickier, so many people are avoiding gluten these days, which of course tends to pervade our carb-laden favorites. But don’t worry! Breaking up with your carb-rich, glutinous entrée is much easier, and tastier than you may think.
We’ve been on the search for nutritious, scrumptious “no-no” food replacements, and finally, two of the most revered comfort foods have a healthy alternative!
Kelp Noodles: Hasta la Pasta
has perfected the art of noodling, crafting a low carb, low calorie, gluten-free, delicate and delicious noodle that can be enjoyed by foodies everywhere! With no “kelpy” flavor, they are light enough to be added to salads or soups, yet filling enough to be used as a spaghetti or linguine replacement for your favorite pasta dish. Gold Mine Kelp Noodles
are similar to traditional glass noodles, providing a light crunchy texture—making them a fun substitute for wheat pasta or rice noodles. Plus, they have calcium, iron, and fiber!
“I have spent a few years looking for a good gluten free pasta/noodle/anything that had a good texture and held up well through cooking and tossing with a sauce. No matter what I tried, rice, buckwheat, bean noodles… Each and every one of them broke apart and/or turned to mush by the time they reached my plate. These kelp noodles are exactly what I had been imagining all along, and the fact that they do not require cooking is such a bonus!” – Elizabeth
“YUM! We loved that we didn’t need any preparation, and that these have virtually no calories, but so much nutrition! We ordered 2 pounds and ate them all right away!! We rolled them up with avocado in the nori sheets we also got here-mmm! So incredible, I recommend these to everyone. My favorite “pasta”! Definitely ordering more!” – Britany and Peter
To make the most of these delicious noodles, an explosively flavorful recipe was born – Raw Kelp Noodle Pad Thai. We were blown away by the flavor packed into this recipe—even non-raw foodies were impressed! Try it out for yourself!
