It's the noodles. No way around them -- as they're packaged.

Three options I can think of:
  • If you can handle some carbs, you don't have to put in all the noodles that come in the package.
  • If it's gotta have "noodles" you could try using those shirataki or "miracle" noodles. Search this site for miracle noodles and you'll find a couple of threads about them. They have pluses and minuses.
  • Use something else to stand in for noodles, like spiralized zucchini. I like to use very thinly sliced cabbage, which softens considerably in the hot broth. The cabbage that's prepackaged for cole slaw is too shredded, though, and it doesn't seem remotely like noodles to me.

If you do a search for low-carb noodles, you'll find there's quite a bit of substitutions out there. Most are from vegetables.

If you want the noodles for an Asian type soup, then I'd suggest opening a can of bean sprouts and use them for the noodles. No, it's not quite the same thing, but they are pretty good in a soup.

No way, no how could I eat regular noodles.

Yeah I don't do well with wheat or rice noodles anymore but there was a time where the rice noodle worked really well for me even better than whole wheat flour

Your not alone, I love Ramen to. What I do is, make my own ramen with brown soup powder (beef), chopped green onions, variety veggies, chopped turkey or chicken, egg white, and grain brown noodle from Japan, noodles doesn't affect blood sugar much at all, can eat much as I desire. Sometimes I toss in garlic. My mom taught me

Give it a try

I did try Nupasta the other day. Not bad, a bit pricey. They are Konjac noodles. Once you added your sauce etc they tasted pretty much like noodles. Found it in my regular grocery which is a rare find here in Ontario.
