Know your facts
Read the label on your ramen. These noodles are mostly carbohydrates and fat, so you will want to balance that with protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Discard the flavor packet
Discard the flavor packet. It contains mostly sodium and is not healthy at all. If you really want the flavor, use one-quarter or less of the seasoning.
Add a protein source to your ramen dish. Crack an egg into the boiling water for egg drop ramen, or add lean chicken or beef.
Add nutrients to your ramen by mixing in vegetables. Broccoli and carrots are chock full of vitamins, but any mix of fresh or cooked vegetables will do the trick.
Cook and mix
Cook your noodles and additional ingredients, mix everything together, season, and serve.
