Shirataki noodles are a staple in my refrigerator. So is Laughing Cow cheese. Combining the two is a quick dinner for me so when I went sent a package of the new Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Cream Cheese Spread, I knew what I was having later this week.
When I got home from vacation, I was lazy going to the grocery store. To be honest, I still haven’t gone. I received a package from TLC featuring all the new flavors on Wednesday. My tummy wasn’t feeling right after landing in Boston on Tuesday and the only thing that tasted good was peanut butter toast. After I was sick of that, I tried the TLC Cream Cheese Spread Cinnamon Cream. It reminded me of being a child and having my mother make me cinnamon sugar toast with butter on white bread as a kid. I hate the phrase “comfort food” but when you feel sick and something tasty makes you feel better, that to me in comfort food and my Ezekial with cinnamon cream cheese spread hit the spot. Not that I care when I don’t feel well, but it was only 125 calories as well.
Creamy Veggie Primavera (Low Carb)
Last night, it was time for dinner and I had zero protein. All I had were a package of noodles (that keep for a while thank goodness), cream cheese spreads, and frozen veggies. I combined spinach with a pepper/onion mix plus sun-dried tomatoes.
After nuking the noodles for a minute and pressing out the extra water, I added them to my veggies with a TLC Veggie Cream Cheese Spread. For extra flavor, I added some Parmesan garlic gold, salt, pepper, red pepper and a little EVOO.
Lastly, I added a tablespoon of chopped walnuts. I wish had shrimp or chicken but it was huge and filling. I didn’t need anything else.
If I were to make this again, I would recommend melting the cream cheese with a bit of EVOO before adding to the dish in a sauce pan.
The Cream Cheese Spreads come in five flavors and I’m excited to try the other three.
