    Blogger of the Day: Lyn at Wholly Freak!

    Shirataki is the newest noodle on the block…superpopular in springtime because it has few or no calories so it fits into anyone’s get-your-beach-body-on plan. Yeah, you can eat noodles and look hot too! 😉
    Some notes on these noodles…
    • They’re made from a yam-like root veggie known as konjac, alone or with tofu too.
    • They have no taste. Bury them under your fave stir fry or sauce or soup or veggies.
    • They smell kinda seaweedy…ignore this. It goes away once you rinse and cook them.
    • They may seem light and innocent but they fill you up with noodlehappy fiber! :)

    Today’s star Lyn splits her time between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur with her cute toy poodle Poppy who loves her vegan treats too! Lyn’s also new on the block…her blog isn’t even a year old and she’s got bigtime vegan fans! Her recipes are simple and creative and feature many Asian dishes so go check ’em out and wish her a happy blogiversary on April 23rd! :)

    Sukiyaki with Shirataki
    firm tofu
    enoki mushrooms
    shitake mushrooms
    shirataki noodles
    soy sauce
    sake (Japanese rice wine)*
    mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)*

    *If you can’t have wine, just use a vegan broth like Better than Bouillon, Edward & Sons, Fattoria Italia, GoBio, Harvest Sun or Rapunzel…vegan beef, miso or mushroom broth would rock your sukiyaki! :)

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
