Low Carb Noodles? Shirataki To The Rescue!

I don't eat pasta.
I used to, but it's not a part of my low carb lifestyle, and I haven't indulged in nearly 2 years (April makes 2 years of living la vida low carb!).
But I sure did like it. And sometimes, although not too often, I miss it. I still cook it for the fam on a regular basis, and it can be hard to dish out their saucy food on noodles while mine goes onto nothing, or maybe some cooked french cut green beans (surprisingly good, actually).

Well, tonight I had noodles.

Don't scold me...I didn't cheat.

I had tofu shirataki noodles I picked up from Virginia's Health Foods in Mobile the other day.

Win $5,000 for your favorite school! Easy entry!

You have a chance to win $5,000 for your favorite grade school or high school.

All you have to do is register and watch the trailer for "Game of Your Life" right here:

Movie Synopsis
(Provided by Vocal Point)

Zach, a high school gamer who lands a scholarship to an elite video game design program, has a bright future as long as he can survive the intense freshman year project that eliminates half the class in the first three months. But when Zach learns that his father is in financial trouble, he has to make a choice that will affect his future and the lives of everyone around him. This humorous and heartfelt drama is a great reminder to kids – and all of us – that the choices they make impact the people around them. “Game of Your Life” airs Friday, December 2nd 8/7c on NBC

After that, ask all your friends, family, teachers, fellow parents and PTO members – everyone you know – to watch it so they can vote for your school once a day, too.
After all, if any one of the people you tell wins, your school wins $5,000!
Good luck!

(Disclosure: I received nothing at all to post this. I just thought it seemed like a cool, decent, family movie...and hey, there aren't too many of those these days! Plus, hey, $5000 for a school!)
