I was funky alright!
Maybe not in a good way, but the instructor was so very nice and she said I didn't do too bad.
Yes, I order them from miraclenoodle.com and they ship in a box - they are packed in water in the bags - you have to rinse them thoroughly because they smell a little fishy, but they don't really have a flavor. They're very bland and go well with about anything. They're excellent to beef up soup or stew, chili, I've put them in pudding like tapioca, eaten them with almond milk and sweetener and a little vanilla and cinnamon, and with pasta sauces, and as a tuna casserole or mexican type casserole and I don't feel the least bit guilty for pigging out on them because they're fiber. The spinach ones have some calories, but they're really good. 15 calories a serving, 2 servings a bag - not really 2 in my opinion, but I think my pouch is the grand canyon sometimes.
I've also made Asian type stir fries with veggies, meat, and soy, lime, splenda, red pepper, and the PB2. Yummy! You can live chat with the Miracle Noodle people too. They are so many varieties. I actually like the mini pearls more than the miracle rice - which seems to be more tender to chew. I hope you like them. You might actually find some at an Asian grocery, too. Shirataki noodles... and the tofu shirataki's used to be carried at Meijer in the refrigerated produce section by the tofu. They have 15 calories a serving and a more tender too. The regular shirataki's are calorie free. Pretty good bargain there!
