I whipped this low-carb shirataki noodles with sardines and Swiss chard up as a quick, weekday night meal when I didn't have a lot of time for prep work. I always try to keep canned sardines around the house, as well as shirataki noodles in my fridge. Both are versatile components that are ready to use as needed. Combine that with the Swiss chard that I have in my garden and BAM... easy, healthy weeknight meal for when I really busy, or really lazy.
