This is why you find no bugs in Capitol Hill studio apartments.
The flavor packets are quite vile. The primary ingredient is usually MSG, which stimulates your tongue and brain to think "meaty/savory". Which is why you feel a craving to slurp down more.
For a healthier alternative, throw out the flavor packet and use a spoonful of soup starter. Pennies more but easier on your liver.
Also, dropping in a beaten egg during the last minute or so of cooking will give you a bit of protein. Adding kimchee gives you a bit of green.
Man, I thought we were the only ones who ate the dry noodles all crunched up like that.
And floating a hit of blotter on top gives you everything.
I long ago took to throwing out the flavor packets and using tamari as a broth instead. That way I can buy the carnivore scum Top Ramen flavors and instantly convert them to vegan soupy delight. Yum!
that stuff is almost nutrition-free, anyway. i knew a political activist who was so busy and committed that she lived almost exclusively on the stuff and had to be eventually hospitalized for problems arising from malnutrition. i say, good riddance to the crap. hello, world: try real food. you'll be glad you did.
I love ramen. It's delicious. Maruchan chicken is the best. I always add veggies and meat to it to make it healthier, so I don't think it's that bad.
Everyone knows the cups of ramen are worse than the cheaper ramen you buy without the cups.
Plus you can get 7 for a dollar at Fred Meyer.
One of my highschool teachers had collected hundreds of Ramen recipes and made a cook book for outbound seniors on their way to college. I wish I still had mine.
Adding meat and vegetables is a grave offense to the Way of Ramen. Let the defilers enjoy paradichlorobenzene for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnite snacks.

Whew, Maruchan rather than Nissin!
Wait, does toxicity matter if you only buy your noodle cups to fuck 'em?
best noodle from Korea anyways
