When you are trying to save money on your food budget, you can’t go wrong with ramen noodles. Ramen noodles are not only fun to eat, but they are also quite filling. Unfortunately, eating plain, packaged ramen day in and day out can get boring fast.

What’s good to add to ramen noodles?

  • mushrooms
  • scallions
  • eggs
  • ginger
  • sesame seeds
  • cilantro
  • celery
  • carrots
  • chicken
  • beef
  • pork
  • shrimp
  • tofu
  • garlic
  • cheese
  • cabbage
  • peanuts (or peanut butter)
  • any and all veggies

Which ramen noodles are the healthiest?

If you are trying to eat a healthy diet, standard instant ramen noodles may not be for you! If it makes you feel any better, the majority of these ramen noodle recipes use other ingredients in place of the flavor packet (which is often loaded with sodium and MSG).

To make any instant ramen noodles healthier, you can:

  • substitute the noodles for any other fresh/frozen Asian noodles
  • add in a protein
  • add fresh or frozen vegetables
  • choose low sodium brands

Also, while choosing homemade ramen over packaged ramen will almost always be the healthiest option, healthy (prepackaged) ramen noodle options do exist. Here are a few of my favorites:
