Miracle Noodle

I came across Miracle Noodle from Kris Jenner. She posed a pic of a dish her chef made using Miracle Noodles. So, I decided to give them a try – and I was not disappointed.

What are Miracle Noodles?  Your answer to guilt free pasta!

  • No net Carbs
  • Gluten Free
  • Calorie Free
  • Made of Naturally dietary fibre called Glucomannan with no fat, sugar or starch
  • Made from the root of the Konjac Plant grown in Asia
  • Beneficial for Type II Diabetes, obesity and cholesterol.

Miracle Noodles come in a variety of flavours from Angel Hair, spinach angel hair, rice to fettucini. They do have a variety pack which consists of 3 Angel Hair, 3 Ziti, 2 Spinach Angel Hair, 2 fettuccini and 2 Rice. Which will cost $39.99 USD.  The serving size is 1-2 people per package. They are easy to cook, you just boil them for 1 minute and then add to your favourite sauce. I found that they take on whatever flavour you are cooking with.

Yes Miracle Noodles are more expensive than your package of spaghetti for $1.99 that will feed your whole family. But consider this, it’s a great solution for those who have diabetes, other health issues or those who want to cut down on the carbs.

Snack Time

Who doesn’t like snacks? My kids and I love snacks! When you are an “on the go” mom, you depend on snacks in your bag. I’d like to shake a couple of my favourite snacks that I carry in my bag.

Somersault Snack Co. Celebrate the power of seeds.  Great for those with nut allergies! Somersaults are crunchy nuggets baked with sunflower seeds and toasted grains. Their #1 ingredient is Sunflower seeds. They have as much protein as almonds with half the fat, a good source of fiber and vitamin e.  This great nut free snack has just 140 calories and an abundance of flavour. They come in cinnamon crunch, salty pepper, sea salt, dutch cocoa and sante fe salsa.

Facts about sunflowers that you probably didn’t know:

  • 7x more folate than almonds, pecans,
  • 50% more protein than almonds
  • 76% of your daily vitamin e
  • 4x the antioxidant of blueberries

How do Somersaults compare to other common snacks?

  • As much protein but half the fat of a serving of almonds with fewer calories
  • 1/3 the carbs of an energy bar
  • 95% less sugar than an energy bar
  • Non- GMO

You can pick these up at your local grocery store or visit them online to order:

My girlfriend introduced me to Rockwells Organic Toasted Coconut Chips. All I can say is I am addicted. I order boxes at a time! So yummy! They are the all-natural way to enjoy a sweet treat. They can be eaten straight out of the bag or incorporated into some of your favorite recipes. They can also be used as a topping on yogurt or blended in a vanilla protein shake. Rockwells coconut chips are:

  • Kosher Certified
  • Non- refined sugar
  • High in Fiber
  • Kosher
  • Free of Gluten
  • Non GMO
  • Vegan

I have not been able to find them at the local grocery store or health food stores, so I purchase mine online at  http://www.rockwellswholefoods.com. They are $4.99/bag, flat shipping rate and fast shipping time. Try them, I guarantee you will love them!

Eat Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil is rich in flavour with a bright green color that has many health benefits.

Here are the facts:

  1. Effective in fighting off free radicles
  2. Rich in monounsaturated fats that help lower bad cholesterol and decrease risk of cardiovascular decease.
  3. High in Vitamin E, which can boost immunity and promote healthy skin.
  4. High smoke point – prevents toxins, radicals and decomposed materials from ending up in your food.
  5. Cold-pressed – a process which contains it’s flavour and nutritional value.

I suggest using Avocado oil for salads, marinades and roasted vegetables. The mild nutty flavour compliments these suggestions really well.

There are many brands of Avocado Oil on the market. I suggest Presidents Choice for $10.99 or Chosen Foods, which you can purchase at Costco.

two moms IN THE RAW

I stumbled upon” two moms IN THE RAW” while shopping at Winners. Bought a bag of the Blueberry Granola, which contained four bars inside. I gave it a try and loved it!

Their website is easy to navigate and they have so many different products. 100% Organic, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Vegan, Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Kosher, Raw and Handmade. But what really impressed me was their story.

Shari, founder and co-owner and mother of three children was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She explored many remedies and took the natural approach to healing. After experimenting she created granola, sea crackers, nut bars and truffles! As the box says Good for you, good for the planet and kids love it!

So, I ended up ordering jogiberry, cranberry and another blueberry. I even threw in some chocolate truffles to my cart. Prices are reasonable and shipping was fast!

Thank you for making such great healthy snacks. two moms IN THE RAW will be a staple in my pantry!
