Food of the week: Shirataki

When we have stir fry, we normally have it over brown rice which has 230 calories for a cup. That really isn't bad since we normally put shrimp and a ton of veggies on it. Tonight we had our stir fry over Tofu Shirataki.

I followed the directions on the bag and drained it, rinsed it, and put it in the microwave for a minute. Then I dried it and tossed it in our stir fry. They were actually very good. Pretty much just like spaghetti. Even my husband, the picky eater, liked it.

The Shirataki noodles are 20 calories a serving (4 oz) and have half a gram of fat, 3 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber and 1 gram of protein. We will definitely be having them again. Our stir fry was a whopping 306 calories.
