It's quick and delicious and great for right after your fitness class at night and the whole family will love it too! Here are the main ingredients you will need and that you should always have routinely stocked in your kitchen pantry—yes including your supply of essential oils. You can get most of these ingredients form your local Asian market or even ShopRite or major chain supermarkets. The essential oils you can get from Whole Foods Markets or most health food stores.

INGREDIENTS:
 

 

  1. Raw frozen Shrimp (6-12 at least)
  2. Rice Noodles ( 2 bundles)
  3. Chicken broth (2 cups)
  4. scallions chopped (a handfull)
  5. frozen veggie medley (a handful)
  6. minced or chopped garlic and ginger (half teaspoon of each)
  7. Lemon Grass essential oil

Get a medium sauce pan and begin to simmer your chicken broth and add shrimp, scallions garlic, ginger and frozen veggies for approximately 5 minutes. Add your noodles last. Be careful not to over boil the rice noodles, they are already very thin like vermicelli, so they don not take long to cook. I like mine a la dente. Let simmer for 3 minutes then add 2 drops of lemon grass essential oil and simmer for 1 minute more. Turn off stove, cover with lid. Inhale deep, serve, Enjoy with Chopstix!!
 

THE BENEFITS OF RICE NOODLES

 

 

GLUTEN AND WHEAT FREE

Rice noodles make an intriguing alternative to rice and pasta. Unlike ramen noodles, which is a wheat-derived product, rice noodles contain no gluten. They come in wide or thin shapes, as brown or white noodles and in fresh or dried form. Consider using rice noodles instead of ramen noodles, regular rice or traditional pastas.

Gluten and Wheat Free

Rice noodles are a "godsend" for people who can't tolerate the gluten in semolina or even whole-wheat regular pasta

 

LOWER IN SODIUM

Instant ramen noodles are notoriously high in sodium. Use similar-textured rice noodles instead. Rice noodles contain 20 mg sodium per serving, compared to the 790 mg sodium in plain ramen noodles.

 

FIBER SOURCE

Rice noodles are now available as brown rice noodles. Much as whole-grain pasta contains more dietary fiber content than regular semolina pasta, brown rice noodles have three to four times the fiber count of traditional rice noodles. The fiber count of brown rice noodles is about 4 g per 2-oz. serving.

 

LOW IN FAT AND CALORIES

Rice noodles make a good base for a low-calorie meal because they are relatively low in calories and fat. A 1-cup serving of rice noodles contains 192 calories and less than 1g fat.

 

VERSATILITY

The neutral flavor and silky texture of rice noodles makes it easy to incorporate them into a wide range of healthy dishes. Rice noodles also come in different forms, including as thin rice "sticks," or as wider, dried rice noodles. Nutrient-rich sauces like tomato sauce cling to thin rice noodles in much the same manner as angel hair pasta. They take well to both hot and cool dishes and blend well with vegetables, tofu and legumes as well as Italian and Asian sauces.
