    I'm a vegetarian. I'm looking for alternative and vegan ways to make noodles. I don't want to be eating whole rich flour noodles. Lately I have been eating rice and wheat made noodles. I like rice ones better but I have been wondering ,is rice noodles fattening just as the whole flour?
    When I make them I used a Greek oil free vinaigrette with fresh parsley and a light sprinkle of Parmesan cheese not a whole lot. No salt no butter. It's mainly vegan. When I boil my rice noodles I used salt free Vegetable bouillon cubes . Very good and very filling.
    I just want to know if I can use rice noodles in my diet. Thanks

    um I have no idea but I would imagine that rice supports the majority of the world's population and most of them are not fat. Rice had few calories I think, go for it.

    ... you made me hungry!

    There are a few things I could eat right now and they aren't all vegetarian.

    I would imagine they are more healthy than egg noodles slathered in butter and doused in salt......mmmmmm buttered noodles. Great. now I want noodles. I wish we had a noodle house around here.

    Try these. I don't really trust most things that say they have 0 calories, but I know some girls that swear by them:

    zero calories in food? not possible by definition...unless all you drink is distilled water of course....

    gosh...even the cardboard packaging would have some calories...

    I know you all know we need calories (energy); it's a matter of how you get them and the total fat content of the food as well.

    Now, I'm off for another mini, skinny, non gm soy, double shot, flat white.

    Oh...and I'd rather canoodle than noodle!

    I agree. But the calories in those noodles are probably negligible. All that they contain are water, soluble fiber, and calcium additive.

    Have you heard of Walden Farms? They market a bunch of supposed "0 cal" chocolate, peanut butter, Marshmallow Whip, etc.

    There are probably so many chemicals in those!

    Chemicals? All foods are chemicals. Pure water is a chemical. 'Organic food' wasn't brought up but is an interesting advertising device. All foods are organic, if it's carbon based then it's organic, I can't remember the last time I ate a silicon based life form. Organic is a misnomer, pesticide free or GM free might be more accurate.

    Thank you very much. Yeah if you need a feller like for replacing foods. When eating a burger , buy the morning star brands they have garden burgers , vegan burger. For baking purpose, for those who can't have milk use plan soy milk , rice milk or plain almond milk as well. Daddy bearcat there are tons of recipes on line for vegetarian cooking.
    Thanks to every one who has come on here and chat about health.
    I think it hardcore !!!!!!
