Recipe for Low-Carb Sesame Noodles

What do you think when you hear the words ‘noodles’ or ‘pasta’? Perhaps a rotund Italian male, wearing a faded, white tank-top shirt, covered by a sauce-stained bib? Whatever your association, noodles and pasta elicit a primordial pleasure response in the brain, a salivating Pavlovian physiological trigger.

Why, then, do low-carb dieters avoid noodles and pasta like a malarial swamp?

Because they are high-starch foods that rapidly convert into sugar, causing pancreases to pump insulin in an effort to escort the sugars broken down from the pasta into the cells. Repeating this process over and over could, in time, lead to excessive weight gain and blood-sugar related chronic health diseases such as diabetes.

For many dieters who are trying to control their blood sugar, pasta and noodles are the most serious offenders. For zealous low-carb lifestylers, the thought of hopping off the low-sugar bandwagon for the sake of experiencing the temporary bliss of high-carb noodles and pasta is akin to a reformed alcoholic relapsing, misguided by a misfiring of the brain’s reward mechanism.

In other words, if you’re a low-carber, it’s not worth the temporary high, felt after eating high-carb noodles; within a couple hours, you feel lethargic and heavy, and, because the starch quickly converts into sugar, you could even feel hungry again even though you felt incredibly stuffed.

Thanks to Miracle Noodle, Low-Carb Dieters Can Enjoy Noodles and Pasta, Guilt-Free

Over a couple thousand years ago, Buddhist monks in Japan discovered that the root of a Japanese yam variety called ‘konjac’ could be shaped into noodles. The root is made of 97 percent water and the rest fiber. The fiber negates the negligible amount of carbohydrates, meaning that these noodles contain zero net carbs! These so-called ‘shirataki’ noodles have been a staple of the Japanese diet for centuries.

In recent times, shirataki noodles from Miracle Noodle have creatively been used in many dishes as a surrogate (but equally tasty) for high-carb dishes.

Sesame Noodles are one of the most popular dishes. And for someone who has gone low-carb, it’s now perfectly fine to enjoy noodles again.
