I have been busting my butt lately (literally and physically!) to lose the last of Munchkin’s baby weight. I have been counting calories and working out about 5 times a week!
I love food… check out my blog if you haven’t and there are TONS of recipes! I have been tracking calories and my workouts on Myfitnesspal.com. I love that it has about everything I eat (and LOTS that I don’t). I also enjoy that I can easily add favorite recipes.
I have been watching this recipe for Ramen Noodle Upgrade by Martha Stewart pop up on my Pinterest feed for weeks.
Today I took it and redid to make it a little bit lower calories.
Low Calorie Peanut Ramen Noodles
- Ramen Noodle Chicken Flavor
- 2 tablespoons of PB 2
- 1/2 tablespoon of Lite Soy Sauce
- Sriacha Chili Sauce (to taste)
- 1 thinly sliced green onion (optional but SOOO worth it!)
- 1 tablespoon chopped peanuts (if you need the crunch!)
Boil the noodles with about 1/4-1/3 of the seasoning packet. I did mine in the microwave with water just about the noodles. Drain off most of the water and then add the PB 2 and the soy sauce. Add the Sriacha sauce to taste, a little goes a LONG way with that stuff! Top with some green onions and if you need them peanuts.
I did NOT add the peanuts to mine (I didn’t have any and wanted to save calories!) With out the peanuts the entire package was 439 calories. Not the lowest of calorie meals, but it killed the craving and saved about 50% on calories.
Also, PB2 it looks like this:
They took all the oil out of the peanuts and left you with a powder. 2 tablespoons of PB 2 added to 1 tablespoon of water gives you peanut butter!! This stuff is awesome in shakes too. I am hoping to bake some cookies with it soon!
