Fancy a takeaway? Rice noodles are the healthy alternative we're all CRAVING
There's something about Monday's that make us all crave takeaways. Maybe it's because the weekend is over and we're all trying to be good, none of us are checking our bank balances and we're all CHUGGING water.
Carbs will make us feel heaps better.
OF COURSE, you need to start the week in a healthy way, but noodles are too tasty to ignore. Have no fear... an alternative is just around the corner, the delightful rice noodle is here to save the day.
So, what's the difference between rice noodles and regular old yummy noodles we hear you ask? A product of white rice flour, rice noodles are naturally gluten-free, making them the perfect choice if you suffer from celiac disease or have a gluten sensitivity.
Visiting one of my favourite Asian fusion restaurants today @maocafeandbar chose the spicy Pad Thai with rice noodles, all gluten free. Always a few reliables here. Absolutely delicious?#glutenfree #glutenfreeliving #coeliac #celiac #padthai #ricenoodles #glutenfreespicyfood #maocafeandbar #asianfusionrestaurant #dublin
We're all about carbohydrates in Her towers. The problem is, when we're trying to be good sometimes it's hard to get full without eating a TON of carbs.
According to Livestrong as a naturally low-fat carbohydrate, rice noodles can provide a filling base for a meal without the worry of lots of fat, great news right? Unfortunately, it's the stuff you put with the noodles that usually drives up the fat content, so watch how you pull everything together; soups or steamed with fresh veggies to reduce the amount of added fat required.
Okay, enough noodle chatter out of me, where can we get these delightful HEALTHY noodles?
Saba has 2 locations in Dublin on Baggot Street and Clarendon Street, their menu is CHOCK full of rice noodles and they do take away! (starts dialling).
