Why you should make homemade ramen:
Ramen noodles in the package from the store have a lot of sodium! They may be a cheap college food, but the packages I have say almost 2,000 mg of sodium per serving! That is a lot of sodium considering around 400 mg is considered moderate level of sodium per serving. I find it healthier to try to make my own ramen!

If you are scared of spice…
Do not be scared of this ramen either just because it is spicy! I did the spicy ramen challenge, and this heat does not even come close to that.
