40 Calories Meal with Ashitaki Noodles

Every time I visited other countries, I enjoyed shopping at local grocers. My last visit to Jakarta, I found a few interesting items which I end up bought back home.

One of it is Ashitaki Low Carb Noodles. I am currently in the process of eating a low calories diet. ehem ehem...Wanna lose some weight! Well,  instead of getting all sort of instant noodles, I bought this low-calories noodles. Seriously, I don't have no idea what I put in my shopping trolley. I can't expect how it tastes too.




Ashitaki Low Carb noodles are only 40 calories. Best of all the flavour I bought is 'Mi Rebus Soto' which is one of the famous must have local cuisine. It has the ticks on High Fibre, Low Fat and Low Carb. Alright! Sold!


Back home, opened the packet...I was like ewwwwww...What is this? This looks like strands of crumple green rubber band stick together which will give me some digestion difficulties. Exactly, that was my honest impression when I unpacked the box. So sceptical! Can I really eat this? Don't tell me this will taste like just greens.

Anyway, I can't let this wasted. As usual 'Google' is the best source of information. The noodles made with Chalcone from Ashitaba a native Japanese plant known for longevity and good health benefit, Konjac yam (elephant yam), tapioca flour. Most of all these noodles are Keto-Friendly too.




Ahitaki 'Mi Rebus Soto' comes with 'Soto spices', Soto oil and fried shallots at topping. The preparation is quite different from the usual instant noodles.

There are 3 ways of preparing Ashitaki Noodles.

1st option - Recommended way of preparing Ashitaki Noodles is to boil 2 glasses of water then add in the noodles and let it boiled for 8 minutes. Throw in the boiling water and then add in the spices in the fresh boil water. Then the noodles are ready to serve.

2nd option - If you are cooking using the water dispenser. Soaked the noodles in hot water in a covered bowl for 20 minutes.  Throw the water and then add in fresh hot water before mixed all the spices. Ready to eat low calories meal!

3rd option - Microwave is another option to cook Ashitaki Noodles. Soaked the noodles in hot water and then put in microwave for 8 minutes with 90-degree Celsius temperature. Throw in the water and add in the fresh hot water before mixed in the spices. Meal served!




I boiled the Ahitaki Noodles for 8 minutes. The result is this translucent green strand which looks like seaweed to me. eheh...This gonna taste like greens! This gonna taste like greens! That phrase keep repeating in my mind again and again. Scared to eat this!!!! This is my first time eating Konjac noodles. Hehehe...




How does my Ashitaki Noodles final look? Isn't this look delicious? Oh! by the way, the garnishing like fried tempeh, egg ribbon, cherry tomatoes and supposedly thin slices of spring onion are my own effort to make my meal look pretty and add more nutrition. The 40 calories meal may not be 40 cal anymore with my generous amount of garnishing but yet it still low calories and high fibre compare to usual meal. huhuhuh

How does Ashitaki Noodles taste?


The noodles by itself are tasteless. I have to chew a lot because it's a bit chewy like munching seaweed jelly and its really addictive.  The Soto flavour is so flavorful with Indonesian Authentic Soto taste. I love my low calories meal. Oh! By the way the noodles don't absorb the soup though.
I don't regret to purchase this Ashitaki Noodles and my only regret is to buy only one packet. Aiya!!! I should have to buy more of this. Hopefully, can search for this  in Malaysia.

What makes Ashitaki Noodles is a good choice compare to usual instant noodles?


* Low Calories
* 10 packs of Ashitaki Noodles = 1 pack of the usual instant noodles
* Low sugar content and safe for diabetic patient
* The content of natrium is lower compare to usual instant noodles
* High fibre, Low fat and it contains Vitamin B12 and Calcium

Delicious low calories meal!

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Adding retinol into our skincare routine at age of 25 to 30 is the perfect time to slow down the ageing process. So, what is retinol that people are hyping about? In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old. I guess, am afraid to start one because I read many side effects if use it wrong.  What is the side effect if you use retinol wrong?  Retinols can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. So, it is advisable to apply this at
