    Nope, it's the fiber, not the starch. Which means it may cause bloating and indigestion for some. But as long as it's not the tofu variety, it's effectively zero carbs and not a horrible option either.

    "Miracle noodles" makes it sound like a scam. I eat them occasionally because they are Japanese food.

    Yeah, My BSometer goes off when anything has "miracle" in the name.

    These are the kelp noodles I was talking about. They have regular kelp noodles, kelp noodles with green tea added, and a mixed sea veggies kind that is my favorite.

    Does anyone know where I can pick one of these up in a store? I don't really want to order one ha. Also, $35 seems like a bummer of an investment for something I may not like a lot.

    I recently tried spaghetti squash and was unimpressed. I ate it, but I tried it with a homemade cheese sauce and it was only OK. I think spaghetti sauce might need a richer sauce, such as alfredo, or even butter/parmesean.

    The kelp noodles look good, and I'd like to try them. But I don't know about buying a case of 12 when I'm not sure if I'd like them. Amazon sells a 12-oz bag for $11.95, which is really expensive. Hmmm...maybe I'll try to find them in real life. I buy shirataki noodles from the local Asian grocery store. They're cheaper than Miracle Noodles (which is just a brand). Maybe they have kelp noodles too. I'll have to look for them the next time I'm there.

    I use shiratake noodles in soups and stir-fries. They are great! I like that they do not go mushy or fall apart & you don't have to cook them and guess the mushy point. But, then again, I've never liked pasta....

    And, yeah, I buy mine shirataki in the Asia supermarket, they are like $1.50 for 2 cups of noodles.
