Sometimes, you just don’t have the time nor the desire to zoodle 10 zucchinis. Enter: Your new best friend, Konjac noodles.
Konjac brings you one step closer to satisfying the cravings of your favourite high carb pasta or noodles – but you can eat the entire packet (recommended as 2.5 servings per pack) for just 20 calories, and around 1g of carbs. That’s 5cal per recommended serve – and no, we’re not kidding.
Long in use in Japan (where they are known as Shirataki noodles), in addition to being low carb, low calorie and low sugar, konjac is also a healthy source of fibre, and quick and easy to prepare.
How to cook shirataki noodles
Coming in a liquid to keep them hydrated and for ease of use, simply tip the packet into a strainer and run water over the noodles until adequately rinsed. Next, tip into a bowl and pour boiling water over the noodles to heat them up. Easy done!

Konjac noodles side effects
As they are not nutritionally dense, konjac noodles are a great way to satisfy those carb cravings, but should not be used as a regular substitute for nutritionally dense vegetables, rather, to bulk out your meals – mix those veggies in there!
