A Health Conscious Ramen Recipe

(with Chicken and Vegetables)

Instant ramen noodles make a meal that is quick, cheap, and easy but not the most nutritious. When made following the package directions, a bowl of ramen provides no vegetables, little protein, and lots of sodium.

This recipe offers an alternative that is easy and boosts the nutritional value with more vegetables and protein. When made with low sodium broth, the sodium is cut by half.
