Pad Thai Shrimp

Shirataki ( meaning ‘white waterfall’ referring to the appearance of these noodles) noodles are made from konjac (Devil’s Tongue) yam and are different to wheat or rice based noddles. They are often called miracle noodles because they have 0 calories, fats or carbs! They are gluten free and grain free and therefore a great Paleo option for dieters. Fiber-packed with glucomannan starch also means bye bye to post-pasta bloat. Studies have shown that konjac fiber reduces cholesterol if eaten about 3 g per day. Add in as many veggies you like, some protein with tofu, shrimp or chicken and you have a nutritious and healthy keto friendly meal ready in minutes @sarchakra
