Here’s the Scoop on Healthy Noodle

Every time we EVER post anything about the infamous Healthy Noodle from Costco, without fail, we receive hundreds of questions, comments, and general messages in our box related to this product.

Here’s the scoop:

  1. What are they? These are gluten free, low carb, fat free, sugar free, cholesterol free and dairy free flat noodles. The brand is called Healthy Noodle, literally. They are 5g total carbs with 4 g fiber, leaving 1g net.
  2. What do they taste like? They are neutral in taste and do not have an odor – unlike shirataki noodles. They are however, in a package stored in a clear liquid to preserve its texture and taste.
  3. Are these like Shirataki? No! They do not have the same smell, taste, or texture. They are stored in a liquid though and are ready to eat hot or cold.
  4. What are they made of? Water, soybean fiber powder, cellulose, sodium alginate, yam konjac powder, calcium chloride, and salt.
  5. What is the texture like? It is similar to a flat rice noodle (pho) – however it doesn’t have the same chew (so keep that in mind).
  6. How do you cook it? You don’t have to! It’s ready to eat so you throw it in whatever dish you want to use it for. We actually DO NOT RECOMMEND cooking it for more than a minute in heat because it will break apart. When we eat the noods, it’s almost ALWAYS in soups. We heat up the broth and then throw the noodles in there right before we eat. You can definitely give them a quick rinse before you eat them (we use warm water).
  7. Where can you get these? THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR – these can be purchase at Costco. The costco item number is 1027760 so call your local store and ask an associate if they carry that product number. They are between $13-15 for a case at Costco depending on your region.
  8. If you do not want to call your local store, go to the facebook account where they often post updates on where they sell their Healthy Noodles.
  9. What recipes do you have with these noodles? None! We do not recommend cooking these in heat or they will break apart. Use them like you would noodles and pour a sauce, dressing, or whatever you want on top. They are the best experience that way. People like to eat them with pasta sauce, in soups, salads, all up to you. We would consider this a dupe for flat rice noodles so take that information and get creative!
  10. What’s a good hack? Rinse these out, store them in a zip lock back, and bring them to your favorite Pho or Hot Pot restaurant!

If you’re looking for inspo, here are some delicious ones:

FAQ: “What do you do with your leftover fry oil?”

Well let me answer that question – something we get almost 20 times daily any time we feature a video of us frying food on our Instagram account.

Short answer: we save it and continue using it until it is too dark or gets cloudy.

Here’s the scoop…

Our families have always deep fried foods since before we can even remember. Back in the day, there would be a designated “frying pot” where the oil would sit until someone needed to fry something – nowadays, in our own homes, here is what we do:

  1. Let the oil cool completely.
  2. Place a mesh strainer at the mouth of a large jar and pour the oil in there. You want the big bits to get caught so it doesn’t end up floating around in the jar. The reason you want to strain the oil is so when you reuse the oil, it doesn’t make the oil darker than it needs to be. It also helps keep the oil tasting fresher (in our opinion).
  3. Close the jar and store at room temperature.
  4. We reuse the oil until it becomes a brown color but that is completely up to you. The darker the oil, the darker your food will look after you fry it, so just adjust the amount of times you reuse based on the color and preference you have.

Now some additional questions we know y’all are going to have:

  1. What kind of oil do you use? We like to use avocado oil because it is clean and has a high smoke point. Use what oil you can afford and are comfortable cooking with. Canola oil, peanut oil, and soybean oil are all oils we have fried with – they are just very processed.
  2. How many times do you re-use oil? Depending on what we fry, it’s 5-6 times. If we fry fish, the oil is dunzo because the smell and taste will not go away.
  3. What deep fryer do you recommend?

Review: Archer Farms Uncured Ham and Swiss Omelet Cups

♬ Hit It – Yung Skrrt

New at Target! Does anyone else like to browse the aisles for new products on the regular? I feel like I’ve been doing that more than ever lately because quarantine had me in a little rut. David and I were at Target last week and picked these babies up – maybe they aren’t as new as I think but they are new to me and I haven’t really seen anyone else talk about these. 

So here are some precursors to this review – I do not like Starbucks Egg Bites and I am not a huge fan of the 3 Petit Lechons Brand of sous vide bites from Aldi/Specialty Grocery Stores. Costco and Target also see the ThreeBridge Egg Cup bites but I don’t think they have much flavor.

I didn’t have high hopes before trying but the ham and swiss combo sounded good. 

Here’s the run down: 

These are $4.49 for a box of 4 omelet cups. The cups are the size of mini cupcakes and come two in a pack. One box is one serving, coming in at 2g total carbs for the entire box – which is not bad at all, however, the portion is tiny LOL. You win some, you lose some, right?

These can be found in the frozen food aisle, next to the frozen breakfast items. You can order it for pick up at your local store as well. 


The omelet cups are frozen and do not require thawing to cook. You just remove the plastic and then pop them in the microwave for a minute and a half and then let them sit for another minute. 

Low Carb Asian Swaps

Yes, we most definitely still enjoy asian food! Check out our list of keto/low carb product swaps!

Egg Roll Wrappers

Use KETOBAES to save some $ if you’re a first time customer.

Soy Sauce Alternative

Aminos are made from coconut and have a slightly coconut aroma but are pretty close to soy sauce vibes.

Chicken Granule Replacement

Add this with some sweetener, salt, and garlic so you’ll have some umami flavor – you can also blend in some mushroom seasoning to take it next level.

Cornstarch for Frying Replacement

Dredge whatever protein you’re looking to crisp up and this works perfectly – you can also add an egg to make more of a batter once you fry it.

Panko Bread Crumb Replacement

Use Pork panko the same way you would use panko bread crumbs!

Super Clean Fish Sauce

We use fish sauce in our daily cooking – this one is super clean.

Sugar Replacement

We’ve permanently replaced real sugar with monk fruit sweetener because it measures the same as sugar – if you want to caramelize something, we suggest using brown swerve or allulose.

Cleaner Teriyaki Sauce

Similar vibes as the coconut aminos but more ingredients to make it a thicker sauce.

Spring Roll Wrapper Alternative

If you’re sick of lettuce wraps and want something sturdier for meal prep – try these. Heads up! Don’t fry these – use them like you would use rice paper for fresh spring rolls.

5 Keto-Friendly Snacks from Amazon

Legendary Foods Tasty Pastry (pop tart dupe)

Image source:

If you’re looking for a nostalgic way to stay keto on the go, these are delicious and close enough to give you pop tart vibez. We like the brown sugar flavor best but there’s also a strawberry option as well. We prefer these straight outta the box but you can toast them like the real day.

Good to Go Snack Bars

Image source:

These cakey bars give off some serious fig newton without the fig vibez. They are soft with a little chew and are the perfect sweet treat when you’re on the go.

Keto Farms Cheesy Jalapeno Mix

Image Source:

If you’re a fan if jalapeno white cheddar popcorn mix, this one’s for you. The seasoning on the nuts and cheese is a dupe for the popcorn shop favorite and is only 2g net carbs for a serving!

Taco Bell Taco Supreme Sunflower Seeds

These seeds are for those of you who are nervous snackers – trying to get the seed out of the shell is 75% of the work and where almost all of the flavor is. We love to have these on hand when we’re on long drives or road trips.

Sola Granola

We have yet to try a flavor of this keto friendly granola that we haven’t liked. It’s so good you can’t even tell it’s mostly a nut mix! Eat it for a quick snack or use it as a topping on yogurt or eat it like cereal.

5 Must Haves from ChocZero

If you like chocolate, keep reading 😊. When we first started eating a ketogenic diet, the only chocolates we really were eating were Russell Stover’s or Hershey’s Sugar Free varieties – which there’s nothing wrong with them but they are filled with maltitol and we’re trying to clean up our act. Maltitol can also cause discomfort, but we’ll get into that another time. Luckily, ChocZero came into our lives and we have yet to find a superior chocolate/syrup company. 

If you’re interested in purchasing anything from ChocZero, use KETOBAES as a discount code to save 10% on your purchase. We even use the code ourselves!

Here are the top five must haves from ChocZero 🍫:

  1. Peanut Butter Cups: Ok these are better than the real deal and there’s no guilt after you eat 1,2, or even 3. We personally like the white chocolate ones the best, followed by milk chocolate and then the dark chocolate.
  2. Milk Chocolate Squares: We are totally white and milk chocolate people so these are the perfect treat if we are craving something sweet. It has a toffee undertone but we are OK with that. These are perfect with peanut butter or by themselves. 
  3. Milk Chocolate Chips: These melt so beautifully and are everything you could ask for for a sugar free chocolate chip. We’ve tried other brands and they just don’t melt as nicely as these ones do – a much better dupe for the real deal. 
  4. Maple Syrup: This is thicker than your sugary syrup but the taste is so on point it doesn’t matter what the texture is. This tastes like the real deal and we love to pour it over our pancakes, bacon, and brussels.
  5. Caramel Syrup: this one’s smooth and sweet and so perfect on top of baked bars or in beverages.

Genius Gourmet Spicy Nacho and Ranch Keto Chips Review

I recently purchased two cases of chips by Genius Gourmet–Spicy Nacho and Ranch cause they’ve been all the rage on Instagram. Y’all know I’m a sucker for salty snacks so I had to try these babies. To help you gauge my taste, I do like the Quest Tortilla Chips, Aldi Pork Rinds, Mushroom Crisps, and Lavash Chips for my kettle and corn tortilla chip replacements. There was a sale going on so each box was $23.92 for 8 bags of chips ($2.99) per 1.13oz bag, which is one serving.

Here are the macros:

Texture: exactly like a Quaker Rice Crisp and/or a Popcorners brand Flex Chip. 

Taste: The Spicy Nacho has like a 1 second hit of heat to it, but is mostly just cheesy with a hint of tomato powder. Definitely nacho vibes. The Ranch had a really off putting chemical taste but a decent sour cream and onion aftertaste. 

Value: You get about 10-12 chips per bag which I think is a little low for $3 a pop. The macros, specifically total carb count, are on point, so if you are a snacker and need something crunchy and salty to make it work into your carbs, they are worth it.

Final verdict: I would buy the Spicy Nacho again but NOT the Ranch. They both have a good crunch factor but the Ranch has an odor I can’t get over. If you are a fan of rice crisps, you’ll really like these chips. If you are expecting a dorito, you are not going to be impressed.
