Sensible eating doesn’t have to mean cutting out all the good stuff, but it does mean making wise food choices. That will look different for every person and in every family, but for those concerned about cholesterol, there’s one easy way to reduce the load.
No Yolks is an yolk-free, no-cholesterol noodle made by Catelli Foods that’s an alternative to standard egg noodles, which contain about 50 mg. of cholesterol in a two-ounce serving. If you do not have disease, the Dieticians of Canada suggest that you eat less than 300 milligrams (mg) of dietary cholesterol per day. If you have heart disease or are at risk for heard disease, aim for less than 200 mg. daily.
Made from wheat flour, corn flour, and egg whites, No Yolks noodles have no cholesterol and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, including broad, extra broad, fine and dumplings.
To promote the brand’s versatility, the company recently hosted an event at the CN Tower, where ten student chefs from George Brown Chef School prepared a variety of noodle dishes. Creators of the top three dishes each received a $2,000 scholarship prize for courses at George Brown Chef School, courtesy of No Yolks.
Chef Lucas Hum took first place with an eggless Carbonara, while Chef Kshitiz Sethi took second place with a rose pudding. Chef Janikka Murray’s mushroom and bacon Stroganoff came in third. Find all the recipes on No Yolks Facebook page. For more inspiration, check out No Yolks Insta page.
CN Tower executive chef John Morris explained that short cut noodles are an excellent foundational ingredient for quick meals. “They go with just about any ingredient so it’s easy to be creative and have fun with a noodle dish, whether it’s with sauce or as the base for a noodle soup,” he said.
He also emphasized the importance of balancing ingredients. “Aim for a combination of noodles, protein and vegetables to ensure an easy-to-digest yet satisfying meal, and of course save room for dessert.”
