Clean Ramen

Rainy cold days are only acceptable in my opinion if you can stay home in your pj’s and indulge in some comfort foods. 
Many wouldn’t consider Ramen noodles to be a comfort food, but this broke college student back in the day accepted it to be. Even though I swore I wouldn’t allow my children to eat this bowl of a salt lick, they were intrigued. It is quick and convenient and most tempting, it’s cheap. 
Learning about the high levels of MSG (an excitotoxin that burns out brain cells) and TBHQ (a synthetic chemical used to not allow oxidation in fats). This can be found in many comfort snack items like Cheez It crackers, Teddy Grahams, many frozen chicken nuggets and children’s cereals. I knew I couldn’t allow them to eat this. Up until now it’s been difficult to find a clean version of Ramen noodles. 
This Ramen noodle brand is my favorite. Brown rice for us Gluten Free peeps and nothing else! Just add a few servings of this Ramen to your boiling broth of choice and add an array of veggies. My crew enjoys stir fry veggies like onions, bell peppers, edamame, water chestnuts. I sauté these veggies in a sesame oil and add liquid aminos. This is like soy sauce but full of nutrients. Add in a good quality broth or stock, like Pacific or 365 Whole Foods brand, and bring to a boil. Add in your rice Ramen and shut off your stove and cover pot with a lid for five minutes. Now you have a steaming hot bowl of delicious soup, with no chemicals 😋
