No Carb Spaghetti using Shirataki noodles

Tofu noodles pick up the flavor of anything you mix with them. My personal opinion; Spaghetti cut Shirataki have the best texture, closest to the real deal. How low carb it ends up depends entirely on what you add. Here I use chive flavored cream cheese and tossed in leftover salmon.
I nuke the noodles for two minutes, then mix other ingredients and nuke again for a minute. You can find these noodles (also in angel hair) at HEB, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc. They last in fridge forever.

Eating at Home during Covid19

Many of you use to eat out a lot. Dinner at home can be simple, once you learn some tricks. To save on produce waste, do not buy huge bulk, if fresh veggies are new to you. Instead, get the single serving..fresh made salads, that even come with toppings and dressing.
This is that salad, spinach, with nuts and I tossed on shredded chicken. Note, even the chicken was purchased already cooked, boned and shredded (HEB) and you toss cold or heat it up, onto the salad. Voila. Easy and healthy.
