White Waterfall

Debra’s Wellness Tips

The word “shirataki” means white waterfall. Shirataki are traditional Japanese noodles. Made from the konjac yam, they are thin, translucent, gelatinous and delicious!

Just do an internet search for “shirataki recipies” and see all the options that come up. One that caught my eye was “Why My Fridge is Never Without Shirataki Noodles and Yours Should Not Be Either.”

One of my favorite tastes is made by whisking together peanut butter, soy, red pepper flakes and sesame oil. If you or someone in your home has a peanut allergy, try substituting Sunbutter, made from sun flower seeds.

If you live in a large metropolitan area you are probably already familiar with myriad ethnic food options. Even small towns are likely to have Asian cuisine. Try your hand with some of these fabulous low-carb noodles. The texture, and the transparent taste, allows you to really get creative in your own kitchen.

This week, take some steps to bring variety into your life. International culinary travels can be as close as the neighborhood grocery store. Your taste buds will say ありがとうございました Arigatōgozaimashita (thank you)!
