Miso Ramen Shirataki (201 calories)

Here is a diet version of our yummy Japanese Miso Ramen made with no-calorie Shirataki noodles. I cut out the egg and sausage & topped it with chicken and turkey bacon instead. The noodles are also mixed with shredded cabbage and mushrooms so it ends up being a giant bowl of noodley soup for a fraction of the calories.
