Skinny Noodles Salad with Shirataki Noodles

Spring has sprung -- which means it won't be long before you're hosting an Easter buffet, making Spring Break plans, or attending a backyard barbecue. After the chill of winter, most of us enjoy these longer days and warmer temperatures. But more get-togethers often means more challenges for those watching what we eat for weight management or other health-related reasons. So how can you enjoy guilt-free without eating like a rabbit? Low carb, low calorie, and gluten-free shirataki noodles and shirataki rice can be life-savers when it comes to creating healthy sides. Used in place of pasta or white rice, fiber-filled shirataki helps satisfy hunger (and the craving to slurp noodles) without extra calories and carbohydrates.

For this month’s featured recipe we chose our Skinny Noodles Salad because it's a fast, easy, and delicious way to create a healthy side dish for the next Spring buffet or potluck. Hop over those other sides without feeling deprived. If you're tired of using the typical spaghetti shirataki, jazz things up with our new kale spaghetti shirataki. It's a fresh, colorful twist on regular spaghetti that will have everyone singing the praises of light, healthy eating!
