Give me stir fried vegetables, noodles, and a creamy sauce - I'm a happy girl on any day. Plus, I discovered an incredibly versatile noodle, called Kelp noodles. They are clear, thin noodles made from kelp, a kind of brown seaweed that is mostly tasteless. The good news - it takes on the any flavor your give it. They are extremely low in carbs (1 gram) and are gluten free. You can serve them with any kind of sauce: pesto, marinara, etc. Personally, they remind me of Asian noodles, so I opted for an Asian Inspired sauce.
