NoOodle is made of 97% water & 3% soluble fiber also known as Glucomannan fiber. Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber. Derived from the roots of the Asian Konjac plant, Glucomannan boasts many health and wellness benefits.

Top 10 Benefits of Eating NoOodle

  1. Zero calories— the glucomannan in NoOodle contributes no calories and when consumed as part of a meal reduces the net caloric content of the meal.  The calories come from what else one puts on the noodles.
  2. Lowers calorie uptake— the glucomannan in NoOodle increases the viscosity of the gastro-intestinal content and reduces rate of food (calories, fat, cholesterol, sugar) absorption in the small intestine.  The net effect of consuming a meal with NoOodle is that one absorbs less calories from the other foods eaten with it.
  3. Promotes satiety— the glucomannan in NoOodle is made up largely of water which fills one up quickly giving the feeling of satisfaction.  One tends to eat less when NoOodle is part of the meal.
  4. Delays hunger— the glucomannan in NoOodle increases the viscosity of gastro-intestinal content and extends the feeling of fullness so one doesn’t feel hungry for an extended period of time.
  5. Modulates glucose spikes— the glucomannan in NoOodle reduces the rate of glucose absorption in the small intestine and prevents blood glucose from spiking (clinically proven to be more effective than xanthan gum and psyllium).  Stirring in NoOodles into ice cream and parfaits helps one enjoy treats with less absorption of sugar.
  6. Modulates insulin surges— the glucomannan in NoOodle, by slowing glucose uptake in the small intestine, reduces the body’s need for insulin.
  7. Cholesterol reducing agent— the glucomannan in NoOodle, by virtue of its viscosity, traps the cholesterol from foods and also the cholesterol released by the body and prevents it from being re-absorbed.  A meal containing NoOodle in addition to flushing out cholesterol from the GI tract will also contribute to reducing cholesterol in the blood cholesterol.  Cholesterol reduction is further enhanced when glucomannan is combined with other cholesterol reducing agents such as plant sterols and chitosan.
  8. Regularity / laxative effect— glucomannan is a dietary fiber and prevents constipation by increasing bulk in the colon without the discomfort associated with most other dietary fibers.
  9. Anti-inflammatory activity— although the mechanism is still being investigated, the positive effect of glucomannan on skin inflammation is well known among its users.  For centuries NoOodle like products have been part of Eastern traditional medicine.
  10. Prebiotic activity— serves as food for bacteria in the colon and helps enhance immunity.  Foods that promote the growth of healthy bacteria have innumerable health benefits for people of all ages and genders.

Chicken Fajita NoOodle without the fajitas (-:

I have been eating lots of chicken lately because it is on my NoOodle diet. I like creating recipes that do not require a lot of clean up so here is my one pan Chicken Fajita NoOodle recipe.

 

Ingredients:

One box of Chicken NoOodle meal Starters with broth

1/2 white onion sliced in thin strips 

1 jalapeno pepper( deseeded and chopped) if you don't like spicy leave it out. 

2 plum tomatos deseeded and chopped

4 raw chicken thighs ( skin on)

1 ounce chopped cilantro

1 ounce low fat yogurt

1 ounce sliced avocado

salt and pepper to taste

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a skillet that can go from stove top to oven. Place on high high until skillet is nice and hot. Add chicken thighs skin side down. Sear chicken on both sides until brown ( about 5 minutes on each side). Add all other ingredients and place pan in oven and cook for 10 minutes. Turn all ingredients once so everything is combined nice and them cook for another 15 minutes.  I then transfer recipes into a bowl and place chicken thighs on top. Then sprinkle the cilantro on top, add the dollap of sour cream and slices of avocado. This is a hearty dinner that serves two people and it is so yummy!
