I’m back on my low carb lifestyle for the last time, I might add and I’m excited to chat to you today about Bare Naked Noodles!
These babies are zero fat, low in calories and 0.1g carbohydrates making them a dream for those on a low carb eating plan. I found them in Morrisons for around £2.50 so they are not cheap and not intended for the whole family to eat. Unless of course, they are also on a low carb diet in which case this is gonna cost you big bucks!
I use regular noodles for the family and these bare naked noodles for myself. There is a difference in texture compared to regular noodles. They feel a little ‘squeeky’ on the teeth… kind of like halloumi feels once it’s been pan fried and you bite into it. They don’t really taste of anything which is where a dinner like Thai chicken curry comes in.
I separated a portion of the Thai chicken curry for myself and tossed it in a bag of drained bare naked noodles, then heated it through for around 3 minutes.
Please note I have not been paid to write this review but was so excited at the prospect of eating pasta, I needed to share this with you.
To make Low Carb Thai Chicken Curry:
3 chicken breasts, diced
1/2 a leek, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1/2 courgette, cut into battons
1 carrot, sliced into ribbons with the vegetable peeler
a handful of mange tout
1/2 jar of Waitrose Thai red curry paste (be aware this contains shellfish!)
1 chicken stock cube
1/2 a can of full fat coconut milk
Fry the diced chicken in a bit of coconut oil until lightly browned on both sides. Add the vegetables and stir fry until just starting to wilt.
Add the stock cube, Thai red curry paste and stir through. Fry for another minute. The smell at this point is INCREDIBLE!
Add the coconut milk, stir and cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes until the sauce has heated through.
Serve with add to wok noodles which you can add to the sauce a couple of minutes before serving or with basmati rice.
Bare naked also do their own version of rice which is also zero fat, low calories and practically zero carbs. I’ve yet to try it but it’s on the list to buy soon.
As for my healthy eating plan, today I had:
Breakfast: Homemade cheese, sausage, mushroom and spinach fritatta
Lunch: Mixed green salad with red cabbage, pickled onions, feta cheese and salad dressing with some homemade chilli tomato soup
Dinner: thai red curry with bare naked noodles.
I doubt i’ll be hungry later but if I am, I will snack on celery sticks and hummus
As ever, if you try any of my recipes, please let me know if you enjoyed them. For those concerned, I intend to keep the slimming world recipes on my site in case anyone finds them useful.
Bright blessings to all,
