  • WOOHOO I COULD EAT MEAT AGAIN!!! Kelp Noodles??

    Hey Groks & Grokettes, I was wondering what you guys thought about this product. I ordered a case last week and made some primal spaghetti and It was PHENOMENAL!!!! It has a neutral taste. I thought it'd be fishy. It says it's ready to eat right out of the bag but it boiled it anyway for about 10-15 minutes to make it a bit softer. Let me know what you guys think.

    (Oh by the way I'm just starting out on PB after 3 months on a 3000-4000 calorie a day experimental Fruitarian diet. I Promised my girlfriend I'd do it with/for her as a birthday gift lol. Great experience and results physically and performance wise. Blood tests were perfect besides B12-Vitamin D. But I just love meat too much lol and my obligation expired Nov 15th)

    Oh and check out these BBQ pit boys. They're meat masters lol. I just used one of their steak recipes and OMG they were on point. check em out.

          Yup. Kelp noodles are tasty, and a good analog for pasta.

              i just throw in any recipe they're so mild in flavor u eat them with anything. one dish i make is cooked ground beef, i add shrimp too throw in whatever spices u like. some quick sauteed veggies. then add the noodles. toss around for 4min. and right at the end i remove it from the heat and throw in 2 egg yolks. pretty awesome.

                  So, what do kelp noodles taste like? I generally don't like substitutes and opt to just stay away from things. But, the iodine potential here is enough to get my attention. I really would prefer something that was different than pasta, but with its own goodness.

                    Right out of the bag they got a noodley (is that even a word?) texture to them but with a slight crunch. Not bad at all trust me. But what I like to do now is soak them the day I intend on eating them generally from 9am-6pm. Then as I'm preparing my meal I boil some water and boil them for a good 10-15 min to REALLY get them to angel hair pasta texture. I've tried just boiling them out of the bag and I just was not patient enough after the 20 min mark. Now some folks like them right out of the package without even boiling or soaking, but i like the texture of pasta. So as I type this I'm chowing down on a nice bowl of Kelp Noodles topped with some fresh meat marinara sauce and sausages. It's dishes like this that will make the PB journey an easy one.

                        The same company also sells straight sea veggies if that's what you want. Sea Tangle is made right here is San Diego.

                          Yea Lardo, I saw the same video from some knit picky Raw Foodist on youtube. But so far so good. Read up on the stuff and other people who've tried it. It has 3 ingredients, water, kelp, sodium alginate. My only concern was the sodium alginate but it turns out to be just fine. Sodium alginate is considered a soluble fiber. And, similar to other soluble fibers like pectin and psyllium, sodium alginate have hypocholesterolemic and glycemic-regulatory activities. ( I copied and pasted that last sentence, I'm not that smart lol) Anyway I don't trust Raw Foodies, even though I'm dating one lol.

                            They don't really taste like anything. When boiled I would compare them, texture wise, to yam or konnyaku noodles.
