I finally got a chance to try my skinny noodles last night. I wish I had tried them earlier. I am super impressed. If you are into asian dishes like stir-fries, soups, pad-thai…this is IT. The noodles were very thin. They really have no taste. Very neutral. They pick up the flavor of the sauce you put them in. So versatile. My next plan is to put them in a some kind of soup.
I made stir-fry with my noodles.
You can use whatever veggies you want for yours. Just chop them all up.
Add a bit of oil to your pan and get the veggies cooking.
While my veggies were cooking I started draining the noodles. I drained them 3 times.
I cooked my chicken on the side as the veggies were cooking. I can’t find my wok so the process took a bit longer!
Add cooked chicken and spices. I used some ginger and some ponzu sauce + a tbsp of peanut butter.
I used a paper towel and got out any extra water from the noodles. I simple popped them into the pan and mixed everything together.
The final product. It was delish. Peanut/soy sauce was amazing and the noodles added a lot of volume with barely any calories! Super excited to try the rest of these guys!
Don’t forget I am running a giveaway for these noodles right over here– 5 packs!

Introducing the cutest portable shots EVER.
http://www.liqsshot.com/ sent me the most adorable tote bag filled with these yummy little cocktails. Perfect by themselves or added to your favorite drink.
What I like- Portable! Recyclable and Reusable! Made in the USA. 4 awesome flavors. Made from quality liquors. Agave tequila and 6X distilled vodka. Perfect for enjoying (Responsibly) on the beach, boat, or at your fourth of july cookout! The best part? LOW calories!
The tequila was super smooth and not overpowering. The kamikaze my husband tried and said it was just right.
This was my favorite of the bunch. Vodka-cucumber-lime. I enjoyed it on a private island in my backyard. I know that sounds really snobby but it’s true!! (I live in the Florida Keys).
More shots! The lychee vodka grapefruit would be good with a club soda and maybe some lime. Yum.
This was such a fun company to review. They are decently priced as well. Check out their Facebook for fun information and coupons. Don’t forget a pack for fourth of July!!
What is your fourth of July tradition? We don’t have one! Tell me yours ;)
