When I was in high school one of the coaches taught a class in health. Even as a teenager I knew that it was pretty sad stuff, with no curriculum, text or tests. He simply rambled for a full year about this and that. Most of it we thought was pretty silly and we were not far from wrong. It was more typical for him to talk about camping or sport and he actually ran a football pool that I am sure that he did pretty well on.
The only thing he said in the whole year that I remember was that if we were stuck in the "the city" with a dollar, we should purchase peanuts as our sole source of nutrition. A buck was a fair amount of money at the time and would have netted a fair amount of nuts. Silly though it may sound, he was probably not far off. Peanuts
I love rice noodles. The texture is great and they are quick to cook. There are a few tricks though. One is to not overcook them or they will become gummy. Second is that they will stick together if not oiled or sauced almost immediately, especially if you're going to use them in a salad like this recipe.
There is the drawback that they don't have much fiber, but the other day there were brown rice noodles at Whole Foods made by Annie Chun. These are really fantastic and worth the extra 60 cents or so. The texture is a little denser and the rice flavor a little bolder. Best of all, they contain 4 grams of fiber per serving, where the regular ones have none.
