No carb noodles, pasta and rice.
Hi fellow cave dwellers , has anyone tried slim noodles, slim rice and slim pasta ?
See it in a health food shop ( holland and Barrett ) here in the U.K.
Made with pure fibre so no carbs at all and only 7 calories.
Perfect if your craving that vehicle to transport ground beef dishes like bolognese or curried meat.
Will try the noodles tomorrow with slow roasted spicy belly pork yum freckling yum.......
Oh and just starting out on my primal life style and have dropped 7 pounds in my first week.
I'll occasionally indulge in Miracle Noodles. They are made with the same Konjac. Make sure they aren't a staple but instead a treat, they are really not nutrient dense. Spaghetti squash, cauliflower rice and hearty greens (baby kale) are also great ground beef delivery devices that won't hamper your weight loss efforts. Keep up the great work and healthy primal eating!
You can still eat them daily, not for your nutrition but for your gut nutrition

Have you tried kelp noodles yet? Can be eaten as is (somewhat crunchy), but they soften in an acidic environment. As one who has been a lifelong vegetable/squash hater, I have to second the suggestion for spaghetti squash. Never thought I'd say that! Works even as a bed, instead of rice, for homemade Chinese dishes.
Buy one of these:

Best $25 I have ever spent. I just wish the darn zucchini we planted would grow! Even my meat and potato eating father in-law took seconds of the zucchini noodles with onions, garlic, tomatoes and basil
Thanks for the advice I have now learnt how to make rice from cauliflower thanks to youtube will be trying it out tomorrow , having these substitutes help to make the transition into full blown primal.....

I've been using spaghetti squash as a replacement for pasta noodles.
