Reasons to Avoid Store-Bought Ramen

Ramen noodles are a popular staple in many people’s pantries. This is because ramen is exceptionally inexpensive and also because it’s so easy to make. Your wallet may not suffer from this purchase, but your body will. Here are just a few reasons you should avoid store-bought ramen.

Excess Sodium

One popular brand of ramen noodles contains 830 mg of sodium per serving. (1)  There are technically two servings of ramen in each brick, but most people eat an entire package. This means one meal can cost you 70% of your recommended daily sodium intake!

Your body needs a certain amount of salt to thrive, but it needs the right kind. Traditional salt undergoes a rigorous harvesting process that strips it of most nutritional benefits. When you make your own ramen noodle soup, you’re free to use the best quality salt.

Gluten-Filled Noodles

Store-bought ramen contains noodles made with wheat. These noodles often include genetically modified soy and corn. This may work for some people, but it can be detrimental for gluten sensitivities.

Our ramen noodle soup recipe uses brown rice noodles. These noodles are gluten-free and allergy-friendly. They’re also easy on your blood sugar and have a wonderful texture. Traditional ramen tends to get soggy, but brown rice noodles have an incredible “bite” to them.

Minimal Nutritional Value

Store-bought ramen has limited nutritional value. If you’re lucky, you may find a tiny bit of dehydrated vegetables or fake meat, but nothing that will fuel your body correctly. Our ramen recipe contains nourishing veggie broth that includes healing ingredients like honey and turmeric.

We also add as many organic vegetables as possible, including greens! Whether you’re under the weather or feeling on top of the world, your body will thank you for feeding it such fantastic ingredients!

Healthy Soup Ingredients 101

This simple recipe uses a combination of savory ingredients to create a nutritional powerhouse. The best part? All of these ingredients are easy to find! Here’s what you need to add to your shopping cart.

Vegetable Broth: Vegetable broth gives this soup a deep flavor with many added nutrients! I like to use my homemade veggie broth, but you can use any large box of organic broth you can find. You can even use bone broth for extra protein if you’re not vegan.

I usually use Pacific Foods vegetable broth because it’s the closest thing to homemade and doesn’t contain unhealthy oils.

Organic Brown Rice and Millet Ramen: With consumers learning more about their bodies, high-quality products are in demand! Thankfully, there is a healthy alternative for just about everything. I love using ramen noodles that are a mix of organic brown rice and millet. 

Health food stores often have a wonderful selection of ramen noodles at a great price. I like Lotus Food brand ramen because it’s high-quality and tasty! Plus, you can purchase smaller packs to make individual servings.

Liquid Aminos or Gluten-Free Tamari Sauce: Soy sauce isn’t an optimal ingredient, so we found a couple of fantastic substitutes. Liquid aminos or gluten-free tamari sauce give your ramen noodle soup a wonderful Asian-inspired flavor without the gross stuff.

We use these ingredients interchangeably and have found great success with both!

Organic Toasted Sesame Oil: Sesame oil is the secret sauce to amazing ramen soup. It adds a light, nutty flavor that you can’t beat! This little-used oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids and is terrific for your heart. Studies show it may even prevent cardiovascular disease! (2)

Organic Mixed Vegetables: This is the fun part and where you can let your creativity (and resourcefulness) shine! We usually customize our soup to fit whatever our body is craving that day.

We find this recipe is a great way to use up leftovers or garden produce! Green beans, snow peas, carrots, broccoli, squash, cauliflower, onions, garlic, and even peppers are great ramen ingredients. Frozen vegetables are a good substitute if you don’t have fresh ones.

Sea Salt: Traditional table salt is stripped of most nutritional benefits, so we prefer using sea salt. Colima sea salt is hand-harvested, which leaves the good stuff intact! Plus, it tastes great and adds a gourmet flair to any recipe. You can also use pink Himalayan salt.
