Nothing wrong with someone liking ramen noodles. Even with the seasoning packet.

My favorite is the shrimp ones, though the mushroom ones rate as well.

I LOVE ramen noodles - with or without the seasoning packet. I particularly like the imported ones, which are spicier & have more interesting flavors. However, I always "tweak" them with fresh sliced garlic, scallions, broccoli florets, bok choy, mushrooms, tofu, chili-garlic sauce, black bean sauce - whatever I have on hand. Sodium notwithstanding, it makes for a very tasty, filling, satisfying lunch or light dinner.

Like with everything else we consume - moderation, not abstinence, is key to healthy eating.

Actually, I don't buy the regular grocery store Ramen I go to my local Asian market and get the large 4 pack of imported Ramen. Some really excellent quality. As for salt, most packaged foods are high in sodium as it is a cheap preservative.

If I have time I prefer to make my own noodles. But sometimes work puts the whammy on that and I have to go with short cuts.

I often use them to make a different rice pilaf! Very good and very different.

So if you are thinking that I am buying my ramen at Kroger and I am getting them 6 for $1 you are way off course.
