  • Miracle Noodles

    Has anyone tried these? With just 6g of carbs per 100g

    Are they primal? Would love to hear your opinions/experiences.

    Everyone over at the Low Carb Friends forum is wild about these things, but, to me, they're just another processed food that I avoid. I'd rather use the carbs on some nice veggies.

      I generally find sticking to the PB a lot simpler and more effective if I don't mess around with processed foods, even if they're nominally acceptable. Like emmie, I'd rather use the carbs on veggies or something else with nutritional value.

        I use spaghetti squash.

        I have never seen these but heard they smell fishy.

          Literally.

          They are nasty. I tried them during my last desperate HCG attempt.

          My advice? Get thee a summer squash and a vegittttibull peeler, or a spaghetti squash. Or cauliflower rice.

          Step aWAY from the nastyass notnoodles.

            Apparently there are 2 types. One made with tofu and one made with glucomannan konjac root. The konjac root one really interests me because it is the active ingredient in PGX, a diet supplement. Basically its just fiber. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure there are a ton of people who shop where I work who would buy them.

              They talked about PGX on a local TV station one day touting its benefits. It sold out at a few health food stores within a couple of days.

                I had the konjac ones. They smell like bad fish, and taste like silicone. Actually, they have no taste, and FEEL like silicone.

                    I had a pack of these in the fridge yesterday and they had been there a few days so I had them for lunch. I put them in beef broth. Not bad but I won't be having them again because I just wanted to try them out since I had previously heard so much about them.

                      The konjac noodles, Miracle Noodles brand, are rubbery, and require a lot of saucing. I have several packages that I would happily give to anyone wanting them. The shirataki ones you can get at most grocery markets, made with some tofu, and two carbs a package, are quite good in a chicken noodle soup, or thai noodle recipe.

                        utterly disgusting.

                        Miracle Noodles? I guess so. A "miracle" anyone would eat them.

                          A recipe and how to prepare

                          Those who already have the noodles might like to try this receipe.

                          Apparently you should rinse the noodles until the smell goes away.
