Are you ready to bring pad thai back into your weight loss plan? With NutriNoodle Shirataki Fettuccine, that is a possibility. You can have your meal on the table in just a few minutes without going over the limit on carbohydrates and calories. 

Some dishes taste so good, but are so bad for diets. Pad thai, for example, is flavorful, satisfying, and easy to find in restaurants or make yourself, but it is practically the kiss of death on a low-carb diet. A single order can have an unfathomable 1000 to 1500 calories and 150 to 200 grams of carbohydrates.

So how can you have your pad thai and eat it, too? NutriNoodle Shirataki Fettuccine can be the foundation. Each serving is free from net carbs. The only carbohydrates it contains are 3 grams of dietary fiber from konjac flour. Plus, each serving has only 10 calories. In contrast, regular fettuccine has 200 calories and 40 grams of carbohydrates.

If you love pasta but want to lose weight, it is no wonder that konjac shirataki noodles are called “miracle” noodles. They allow you to include any number of favorite pasta dishes on a low-carb or keto diet.

If you enjoy getting a meal on the table fast, another miracle with shirataki noodles is how quickly you can prepare them. Just open the package, drain the noodles, microwave them for 1 minute or soak them for 1 minute in hot water, and use them. You can even use them cold just by opening the package and draining the noodles.

Another trick with this recipe is using a healthier sugar substitute. Most recipes use white or brown sugar, but using a calorie-free sugar substitute, such as stevia, can cut carbohydrates and sugar. You can also use agave syrup if it is part of your meal plan.

This pad thai recipe tastes great, but you can vary it however you like. You can use shrimp, chicken, salmon or other fish, or tofu. It is also okay to throw in a handful of diced vegetables, such as chopped broccoli florets or mushrooms.
