Hijack 2 Who Knew?

The Laughing Cow is red and jovial, and is almost always depicted wearing earrings that look like the round boxes the cheese comes in. On April 16, 1921, Leon Bel[1] trademarked his brand, called "La Vache qui rit," in France. In the trademark, the cow is said to have a hilarious expression. Bel had made the original drawing himself, after seeing a travelling meat wagon during World War I called "La Wachkyrie," a play on the word for Valkyrie. In the beginning she wasn't laughing, she wasn't red and she didn't wear earrings. This patent was the very first branded cheese product registered in France. In 1924, Benjamin Rabier, a famous illustrator, edited the drawing into something more like the image that prevails today. The blue and white stripes around the box date from 1955. Since 1976 both earring-boxes have been shown with the top-side visible. Before that year consumers were shown a top and bottom side. The current logo uses a Droste effect.

netrition has them, amazon has them with autoship, sometimes you can google miracle noodles and your city and find a local supplier.

Yes Netrition does have them and I believe that is a deal...

This is the same that I use and have had great DD with around 300 cals for total.

Miracle Noodle Shirataki Pasta

It is made from Konjac Root.

My Whole Foods has the ones without tofu, but they aren't in the refrigerated section where the tofu noodles are. I found them in the Asian aisle, where the nori, soy sauce and dried noodles are. Konjac noodles do not have to be refrigerated.

FWIW, the 20 calories and 1 carb you get from the tofu shiritaki makes a HUGE difference in texture and flavor - it's closer to wheat noodles. I can't stand regular shiritake noodles. You can also buy the angel-hair or spaghetti-style noodles and put it through a blender to get "rice", rather than paying extra for the Miracle Noodles. The best outcome for these products comes from creating your dish a day ahead and allowing the noodles to soak in whatever sauce you're using. They'll take on the flavor of the sauce and break down a bit softer.

I have a great thai green curry soup I make with tofu shiritake, and after they've marinated overnight you'd never know it was shiritake. I served it to my japanese brother-in-law, who loved it until I told him the noodles are konnyaku (the japanese word for the main ingredient). He kept looking at me disbelievingly as he ate it. He grew up eating sukiyaki and really disliked the stuff.

I actually prefer the texture of the non-tofu shirataki noodles, but I'm admittedly not "normal."

I was influenced to rush out and pick up some Sun Warrior protein powder. I tried it for lunch and it was pretty good.

Where do u get the gluc powder? What do you all use it for? And what are these DD puddings?

Also, can shirataki rice be somehow used to make a rice pudding-like dish? Thought on how to do that? That's one dish I have yet to make diet-appropriate (low-carb/low-calorie).

netrition carries glucomannan powder and so does konjacfoods

It's a thickener. I use it for gravy or to make SF, calorie free jello.

3/4 C water
1/4 C any flavor DaVinci or Torani SF srup
1 tsp gluc powder
I mix mine in the Magic Bullet for 30-45 seconds

My new foods are shirataki noodles and rice. I bought my first ones from netrition but got a case for a good price elsewhere. Miracle noodle.
Tried stevia again and what is on the market now is so much better than what I tried and hated years ago. Deleted Splenda from my diet for the most part. Stevia is now my replacement.

So many!! I did low carb for ages and there always seemed to be a new food that everyone was talking about. Probably Greek yogurt/yocheese was my favorite out of these. I still like it, but it's not quite the staple of my diet that it once was.

On Low carb

Shirataki noodles
cabbage
xanthum gum
Greek yogurt/yocheese
apple cider vinegar
coconut oil
steel cut oats
flax seed/one minute muffins
Davinci syrups
cream cheese muffins
flat out bread
splenda

On JUDDD

chia seeds (these seem to be the new rage)
pb2
almond milk
Laughing Cow cheese
whey protein powder

Same here - I tried stevia years ago and hated it. More recently picked up a box of Truvia and a box of Stevia in the Raw, and liked them both. Tastes great to me and I feel better about using it than I do things like aspartame. I will use a little Splenda if I'm out at a restaurant or somewhere and forgot to bring stevia packets, but otherwise just stevia.

This is interesting... Thanks.

So, in the next week or so, that means I've been influenced to try glucomannan powder... and retry miracle noodles.

I've also recently tried coconut flour - awesome for some muffin and pancake recipes, especially when you limit whole eggs and use mostly egg whites.

I also find myself drawn to zucchini and cabbage a lot more - I've liked them before, but I'm gaining new appreciation for them.

Just out of curiousity, wonder what changed about stevia??? Is it just us? It used to have a bitter aftertast... I love it now too!

I use truvia or NuNaturals liquid stevia and can't live without my bottle. I even keep a bottle in my purse.

When I first started JUDDD, I tried quite a few lower fat or fat free products, planning to rely on these aids for my DDs, just as I had relied on sugar free products during my low carb period. But I think most sugar-free substitutes and franken-products are disgusting, and many of the low fat substitutes ended up being disappointing too.

These days, I eat mostly *real* foods... anything and everything on my Up Days! And on my Down Days, I eat mostly real whole foods too, choices that are naturally low calorie just naturally.

I do use glucomannan powder to thicken sauces to use on DDs, and I use the shirataki noodles on DDs sometimes as well. There are a very few lower fat or fat free versions of standard foods that I prefer over the full fat versions, so I choose those products for my kitchen all the time, just because I prefer the taste of the lower fat version of that food. And I do use Splenda syrups of some kind for sweetening on my DDs only. Real sugar for sweetener on my Up Days. Works for me.
