My vitamin company sells kelp noodles so I'm anxious to try this.  But I would cook the carrots to maximize the nutritional value of them. I'd also leave out the cashews since they have starch in them which is not usual for nuts so I stopped eating them when I found out about their starch content.


Hi Judith, that's great thinking! I would stir-fry the carrots for 1-2 minutes. You can try copped almonds or macadamias instead or cashews - they are both very low in carbs.
