2 Minuite noodles... The HEALTHY way!

Postby CrimsonThunder » Wed Dec 19, 2007 8:44 pm

Ok, so I am in LOVE with 2 minute noodles. But because they're so fattening I have not had them in a looong time.

So lately, I've been experimenting. I have worked out that its not the seasoning thats fattening its the noodles themselves. Cook them and drain the water, leave it for a while and watch the fat harden on the top.

Thats why they only take 2 minuites to cook. So I went to the shop, 2 min noodles have 16 grams of fat for just ONE packet. (who has one?) But a 500g packet of uncooked spagetti has only 1.8 grams of fat. =]

Ok so tonight i'm going to cook some spagetti and for the seasoning i'm going to add "Taco Seasoning" which has 0 grams of fat. :D I don't know how its going to taste, but its an experiment.

So yeah, for you out there that LOVE 2 minuite noodles and still eat them, might be the time to switch. :) (Although these would be called 13 minuite noodles lol)

Maybe add some chicken or beef stock powder to the water that you cook the pasta in as well, may add some extra flavour, although i am not sure what it would do to the calories.

Unfortunately the seasoning also has a lot of badness in it - loads of sodium and additives! So unfortunately, it's all bad! You're better off with some cheese on top. But everything in moderation!!

Maggi make a 99% Fat Free version, in chicken and beef, they only have just over 1g of fat per serving. I like to have them with a tin of flavoured tuna for lunch (minus the noodle flavouring sachet), a few cherry tomatoes make a nice addition too!

I also love noodles. Have you thought about vermicelli noodles (rice noodles) or even angel hair pasta. They both are thin and delicate like 2 min noodles and a lot healthier. I add tuna, tomato, capsicum and low fat dressing to make noodle salad. YUM!!

I always add things to my 2min noodles - tuna, peas, corn, mushrooms etc so that it's a proper meal. I might have to look into some lower fat brands though after looking at these (Trident = 10.4g fat per 100g). I don't eat them very often though
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
