My blood sugar is “just a little sweet” or at least that’s what my doctor once told me. About five years ago I was told I was pre-diabetic and then a year ago I was told I was diabetic. I’m not bad and don’t have big swinging numbers. If I take my meds and limit myself to one or two carb choices a day, I’m okay.
Carbs, more than sweets, is my problems.
When I saw the, new to me, shirataki spaghetti, I had to give it a try…15 calories per serving and only 4 carbs caught my attention… Regular spaghetti noodles and gluten free noodles both have lots of carbs. These are WAY-Way lower. Rarely do I like imitation products but these seemed worth the try….now for the taste.
Hmmm…I am not sure how to rate these. They are incredibly long…REALLY, REALLY long. I ended up having to cut them up. There was no was to wrap them around a fork without cutting them. The taste is for the more part tasteless…not that store bought have a lot of taste but these were less.
What I didn’t love was the texture.
Can I eat them? Yes. Do I love them? No. Will I buy them again? Yes..I think Kelli and I will experiment with them one day. They are gluten free so she might want to give them a try. I wonder if I might like them better if the sauce of the spaghetti is more mixed with the noodles rather than just lying on the top.
Give them a try and tell me what you think or is there is a better way to eat them. If you haven’t seen them, my Wal-Mart has them in the produce section near the wanton wrapped and such.
For now…I’ll stick with spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce. I prefer that and it is a better option for me than regular noodles.
