Intro: Healthy Hacks: Instant Noodles
Do you like Instant Noodles? Do you find yourself craving them at any hour during the day? Do you love how simplistic and fast they are, and how simulated the flavours taste? Well, so do I. But have you ever read the Nutrition Facts that are printed on the back? Well, you would be very suprised at what you would find. On my favorite brand of Instant Noodles, Mr. Noodles, I found that one packet contained 81% of my daily dose of sodium. 81%! That is completely and utterly ridiculous. So I decided to make some changes to my favourite snack food.
Step 1: Ingredients:
For this Recipie, you will need:
-A Packet of Instant Noodles
-Random Ingredients that you think taste good
-Chopsticks (Yes, eating with chopsticks makes me feel special. it should make you feel special too.)
Step 2: Starting:
Okay, you have your ingredients, and are ready to start cooking.
Here are some of the first things that you need to do:
1:Boil Water - Fill your kettle or other boiling apparatus and start to boil water
2:Break Noodles- I find that the Noodles often don't fit in a bowl properly. And if you break them after you open the packet they shoot off all around your kitchen. The simple solution: Break First, Open Later.
Step 3: The Healthy Part...
This is the part that actually makes this healthy. Take the packet of flavour that comes with the noodles and open it. Then dump Half of it on the noodles. Only Half. This should leave more than enough flavour and you will cut the sodium and other bad stuff in half.
Step 4: Add Your Ingredients:
Now, feel free to add anything that you desire to make this the most tasty experience that you will ever experience. I personally love to use honey mustard and sweet and spicy hot thai sauce. Lemon is also really good, along with a dutch seasoning sauce called Maghi. But don't take my word for it, try it yourself!
Step 5: Steam Those Noodles!
Pour the boiling water over the Noodles, specifically aiming at ingredients that are harder to disolve. This way everything will be mixed more evenly. Then, take your utensil and give everything a good stir! Make sure everything gets mixed in.
Step 6: Finish.
Congratulations! You just managed to cut your sodium intake and make your favorite snack even tastier! You may have even made your flavour go from regular to AWESOME! Now you will eat your Instant Noodles, and you will like them!(say last sentence in strong accent) Now, use this useful tip to remove un-needed and un-nesassary items from your daily diet!
