Rinsing Shirataki

Well, I took the plunge and ordered some non-tofu shirataki noodles from online.

It’s not bad in terms of texture and flavor, although I’m still not sure how I feel about eating essentially pure glucomannan as a filler.  I mean, it’s pretty highly processed, but then so is the guar gum powder I put in my whey shakes (which themselves are pretty highly processed).  I guess in the end I’ll just watch the macronutrient ratios as I have been, and make sure I’m getting the right amounts of the right things.

The other necessary thing for this is that I’ve had to add an 8″ mesh strainer to my kitchen tools.  This thing makes rinsing even the tiny “pasta” shapes really easy, since I just dump the noodles into the strainer, submerge in a bowl, swish around, lift the strainer, change the water, and repeat.
