Ramen Noodles are a Japanese noodle dish consists of wheat noodles served in a meat or fish-based broth, Usually its flavored with soy sauce and uses toppings such as sliced pork, green onions, and other vegetables. Almost every locality in Japan has its own variation of ramen,

A serving of ramen is high in carbohydrates and low in vitamins and minerals. Adding vegetables & meats really make it a healthy meal. Ramen soup tends to be high in sodium. Ramen noodles themselves contain very little sodium so one can avoid drinking the soup OR using a low sodium broth if a low-sodium diet is recommended for health reasons.

So here are some recipes that will add to that cheap little package of Ramin Noodles.
