Product Review: Can You Say Yam Noodle?
Hello beauties How was everyone’s Sunday? My Sunday was just what the doctor ordered…
Last night I seriously felt like crap. I was contemplating whether I should go to the gym in the morning or not. My nose was stuffy and my head was throbbing, so I went to bed early (luckily, I felt like this after going out with the girls! We had a lovely time)
I was even more in luck when I woke up this morning feeling much better! So, I began my day with a delicious breakfast
I thought I’d treat myself to one of my favourites Then, off to the gym I went! It was leg day today, so I left with noodle legs It felt great!
After the gym, I went home, washed up and de-stunk myself for church It was a beautiful service, once again. I am so proud of myself for sticking with my November goals Church makes my typically lonely Sundays so much better! I think church makes everything better, though
The rest of my day wasn’t all that exciting. I could talk about it, but I rather talk more about Remark and a new-to-me product instead
What do you think about that!?
Foodie talk or homework? Hmmm. Tough one…
My new find is Shirataki noodles, but made from YAM instead of tofu!
I have tried the tofu version before, but I thought it would be fun to give these a try since I really enjoyed the tofu version
I had them for dinner as part of a spicy noodle bowl
I warmed them up in a frying pan with broccoli
Then I added cubed chicken that I marinated and cooked before hand
I let the flavours mingle, removed from heat, and then added sesame oil
The noodle bowl was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the Shirataki yam noodles
Compared to the tofu version, they are obviously darker, but they were also more dense. When I tried the Shirataki noodles made with tofu I tried the angel hair pasta, so that may be why I thought these were more dense because they are more of a spaghetti-sized noodle, but, personally, I think there was a difference in texture. They didn’t seem as “light” as the Shirataki tofu noodles. I will definitely be buying these again I am super happy because I have one more package left, so I won’t have to go back right away to buy more
The chicken I made also went perfectly with this meal It was definitely the wonderful marinade that I came up with It’s all about the marinade people
Spicy Orange Chicken Marinade
1 cup orange juice
juice of 1 lemon
1 – 2 Tbsp chili garlic paste (I use this, it’s a favourite!)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp powdered ginger (fresh ginger would have been amazing, but I didn’t have any)
Mix all ingredients together and marinade that chicken! I let mine marinade over night
Well, I best be on my way Homework is calling me…
I am really excited for Meatless Monday tomorrow! I hope all of you are, too! I have a fun recipe to share
When was the last time you went out for a meal with friends?
Have you tried Shirataki noodles before? Were they made with yam or tofu?
Do you usually marinade your chicken or do you prefer it plain?
I appreciate the beautiful voice that the main singer in church has. Today, it was a different girl singing than usual, but she was amazing. I was amazed when she opened her voice and heard such a strong powerful voice! It was breathtaking! I was in awe
