Ramen noodles

Post by College Boy » Sun Feb 25, 2007 1:51 pm

Start with two packages of Ramen noodles. If they are not the same flavor, at least make sure they are compatible flavors like beef and pork or shrimp and beef or shrimp and pork. Boil one pot of water. It doesn't really matter how much water is in it, as long as it is enough to cover two blocks of noodles. When it is at a hard boil, put in the blocks of noodles. Hold them under water with a fork until they get bendy. Put in the flavor packets and turn off the water. Stir. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. Drain using a strainer and dump the noodles in a bowl. Eat. Makes four servings which is one meal for an adult who weighs more than ninety pounds.

Sorry guys. there are alternatives to Ramen Noodles...those Sodium & MSG packed Bricks of dehydrated noodles that spring to life with a bit of boiling water and a pack of pure, whatever, I fail to understand.

First, MSG is off-the-charts for what I won't tolerate, under any circumstances. The Salt can be minimized with various techniques But forget-it, there are significantly more healthy alternatives that won't take but a few more minutes off your time cooking, and a few more cents from your pocket. Eat right!

Don't think I don't understand the College quest for eating as cheap as possible. I made tomato soup from katsup when I was in College.

I don't know what you think you know about MSG, but you're simply wrong about it being, "off the charts." You're no doubt buying into all the myths perpepuated by the anti-MSG crowd.

Do I need to ‘trick my tongue' into believing a certain food is high in protein and thus nutritious? BS…they do. As far as I’m concerned the School Is Still Out on MSG. 3 members of my family including myself get negative reactions from it.

MSG is simply a Salt of the Amino Acid (glutamate). DNA tells the body how to make the acid chain and in what order. Excess of naturally occurring glutamate is well known by neuroscientists to be a problem, especially patients with Type II Diabetes. MSG stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin, and some professionals are concerned with its impact on obesity.

The FDA spouting that free glutamate is as harmless as bound glutamate means what? If it was the same, they wouldn't need to hydrolyze the protein, or hydrolyze anything for that matter, even that plastic for our veins, ‘Trans Fats’. Face it, American health, Sucks.

Regardless what you believe, the body should never be compromised in its job of getting rid of excess glutamate. It is a question of balance, excess of glutamate in nerve cells cause over-stimulation.

Does it kill you? No! Are there effects on the body? Yes, in some. Can trouble begin because the body is attacking large enzymes responsible for proper processing? Each must decide for themselves. As for me, No thanks!

TRUE: MSG is a most interesting substance. It is added to foods to 'Fake' the senses, but has absoslutely no nutritional value. The concerns lie in the fact that MSG is a neurotropic drug, a substance that effects the nervous system.

Is "bendy" similar to "al dente" culinarily speaking?

You can get a full 2,000 calories (one day's worth) of ramen noodles for about $1.40.

2000 calories is for someone who weighs about 190 to 200 pounds.
In very general terms...say you want to weigh 125 pounds, you should consume about 1250 calories a day average. If you eat less than that, your body will think you're starving it and likely store fat. If you eat much more than that (depending on your metabolism) you'll possibly gain weight. Unless you're active enough to burn it off.

2000 calories a day is more for someone 6'1" to 6' 2" and fairly big boned. But whatever you eat, make it nutritious or you're kidding yourself. MSG has 'zero' nutrition. So what may I ask is the point, precisely?

Oh, I'm not sure?????? I think he was talking to me because I said I'd never tried ramen noodles and his reply was I could get a full day's calories for $1.40.

And then you see my reply. I can't eat that many calories or that much salt.

Now that's my kind of baking...Bread!
Now you know me with baking but I do bake a lot of my own breads, about half. Artisan breads of all types & shapes, and rolls of all types, including one of my favorite, Parker House Rolls (being originally from Boston of course).

It was 60 degrees here today, full sun, not bad. But 12 inches of snow...I'd be baking also.

It would be wise I believe, not to ingest Hydrolyzed anything as a trend in your diet. Trans Fats are the perfect example.

And the Feds still allow food companies to post 'Zero %' Trans Fat if it contains less than 1%. It should have been banned altogether. The relationship between the FDA and food companies is incest. Almost as bad as their oversight of the pharmaceutical industry.
