Paleo Asian Noodles

I was attempting pad thai here, but it just didn’t end up tasting like pad thai. It definitely tasted like a good asian noodle dish, so I deemed it worthy of a post. These noodles are paleo and strangely enough have zero carbs or calories.  I don’t count carbs or calories on paleo; I just find it interesting. The texture is similar to rice noodles, and the key is to boil them before eating them. They would be really good in an a soup or even with spaghetti and meatballs. The Shirataki noodles can be found on Amazon, and I found mine in Sprouts.  I am willing to bet that if I looked at Whole Foods, I would find them there as well.
