As many of you may have noticed or heard me say a million times, I love Asian foods. They are so full of spices, sauces, and ingredients that make my taste buds super happy.
I always enjoy trying to make some of my favorites restaurant dishes at home and these noodles are inspired. I have shared many of those dished with you guys here on the blog.
So if you haven’t seen the other recipes and you share my love of Asian foods then hop over and visit a few of these recipes listed below after you check out this one for my Shrimp Noodle Stir Fry.
How Can Noodles Be Low Carb?
Now you may be asking yourself “how in the world a noodle dish can be labeled low carb or THM?“.
If so let me assure you that the noodles I use in my noodle stir fry are perfectly safe for any low carb diet and of course Trim Healthy Mama if you follow that plan.
These noodles used in the recipe are not from wheat or any grain for that matter. They are made from the healthy Konjac Root and they closely resemble the noodles used in some Japanese or Asian dishes.
One thing that is worth mentioning about these noodles is the texture. It can be a lot different than your standard gluten-filled pasta.
So if you haven’t tried these types of noodles yet, I want to encourage you to give them a try, but just keep in mind that they are not exactly like the traditional noodles many of us grew up eating.
But just like any low carb alternative, they make it easier for us to enjoy healthier versions of our favorite dishes without adding unwanted inches to our waistlines.
Which for those of us like myself that are trying to drop pounds and get healthier that is a great thing!
There are many brands of these types of konjac noodles on the market today so you’ll find them in many stores like Wal-Mart, Kroger, and most health food stores.
When you are shopping for them you’ll look for noodles labeled “Miracle Noodles” or “Zero Carb Noodle”. In my area, they are typically found in the refrigerated section near the Vegan foods.
As far as quality goes, you’ll find that it can be a trick finding the best brand. I have tried many of the brands of these noodles, and I’ve enjoyed some more than others along the way.
Some things I’ve found that turn me off of many of the brands are fishy smell when you open the package, they all stick together when cooked, and they sometimes are not neutral in flavor.
So believe me when I say you need a good brand of noodles to get the best results in your recipes.
My favorite of all is the THM brand. This particular brand can’t be found locally but can be ordered in a case quantity from THM. You can find their Trim Healthy Noodles from the store on the Trim Healthy Mama Website.
The THM creators have tweaked their recipe on these low carb noodles adding in some oat fiber that has given their product a more noodle-like appearance and texture in my opinion. Most importantly (in my opinion anyway) is that they do not have any of that off-putting fish smell as I mentioned above!
With that being said, please keep in mind that even these noodles will differ from your old standby gluten pasta, they have a wonderful chew to them that my family loves but it may take a bit of getting used to.
Making the Shrimp Noodle Stir Fry
This recipe fits well with my philosophy that great tasty meals do not have to be complicated because it is a simple one-pan meal.
You can have this mean prepped and ready to eat in around 35 minutes, how awesome is that?
I know not everyone enjoys seafood, so if you don’t like shrimp, you can swap it out for boneless and skinless chicken breast or even tofu if you are vegan.
And if the veggies in this recipe don’t fit your taste buds then try some others that you enjoy, it really is an easy recipe to change up if you need to.
After choosing your protein and favorite veggies you are ready to begin the cooking. You’ll find it is as simple as that.
Trust me you guys, this Shrimp Noodle Stir Fry really does taste magical despite it being good for us! I hope you give it a try soon and let me know how you like it!
