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.

"An-tic-a-pa-tion... An-tic-a-pa-tion.... It's making me wait. It's making me wai-ai-ai- ai-ai-aite!"


Do you guys remember that song? Do you know the feeling? Are you waiting for something great to happen in your life?


 I really don't enjoy waiting for things to happen. Especially when those things take a lot longer than what I anticipated them to take. I remember when I got engaged.The wedding date was a year later. It was the most annoying year for me waiting for that day to come. I remember during that year it was all I could think about.  My pregnancies were the same kind of thing for me. Waiting for my babies to be born were really long waits for me. Of course when the waiting ends the event always turns out to be worth the wait. 

The flip side of waiting for great things to happen in our lives doesn't look appealing to me. Imagine not having anything great to wait for?  Imagine a life without holiday to share with family? What about vacations? New babies? Weddings? Life would be boring and dull and so we plan and we wait.

 I have been waiting for a big event in my life to happen for almost a year now. Unlike my wedding date and the birth dates of my boys I don't know when this event will happen in my future. What I do know is that this event will have a GREAT positive impact on my ability to Create a New NoOodle World. This is my ultimate goal... A world where everyone who needs and wants to eat NoOodle, a household brand name. 

In order to enjoy my life and work today I focus on being mindful and productive in the here & now.  Do I day dream of the exciting event to come in my future that will bring on the tipping point for NoOodle? Of course I do!  The anticipation of the event( dream) is what keeps me inspired everyday. I was humming that tune today ( anticipation) and it sparked me to create todays blog.


Don't forget to send in your Post NoOodle picture. I will announce the winner to the contest sometime next week.
