Will ramen noodles be okay in a crockpot for hours?

Probably not: These noodles, cooked for a lengthy time will degenerate and become a slurry. This is not really palatable although it is not harmful - it would be like eating congee. Leave the noodles out if that is part of a recipe, cook them when the rest is done and then mix them in. ...Read more

I am on a college budget, what is a cheap, easy, filling, and healthy diet plan I can follow (ie. Not ramen noodles).?

Cheap and easy: I am a fan of weight watchers but it does cost something per month. Basically you should eat all types of foods, watch your portions (very important), eat more vegetables and fruits, stay away from fast food or packaged food, and most importantly, exercise. Even going for a long walk is exercise. Don't forget a multivitamin each day. Good luck. ...Read more

I recently had my wisdom teeth taken out this morning and my favorite kind of ramen noodles is very spicy. Is it ok for me to eat it?

I recently had my wisdom teeth taken out this morning and my favorite kind of ramen noodles is very spicy. Is it ok for me to eat it?

Yes: If spicy ramen noodles is part of your normal diet, you can eat them following your surgery. If your mouth is still numb, you will need to make sure that the noodles and liquid they are cooked in are not too hot, as you could experience a burn to the mouth and not feel it until the local anesthetic wears off. ...Read more

Wanted to know if I can eat ramen noodles after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Wanted to know if I can eat ramen noodles after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Soft food: After extraction, eating soft food like noodles--ramen, spaghetti, pho, soba, etc.--is an excellent choice. Make sure food is not too hot. Important: do not slurp noodles but eat like you'd do with pasta. This is because slurping or any sucking motion will cause the clotting blood to come off--a major issue that leads to dry socket! Fyi: ramen has little nutritional value so take supplements also. ...Read more

I was eating ramen/cup of noodles for a couple of months  everyday. Now I am worried I had too much sodium?

Yup: That is a worry. That stuff is loaded with sodium. Assuming you're otherwise healthy and don't have hypertension, just lay off that and watch your sodium intake now. See your doctor at least once a year if you're healthy. Otherwise, bring it up at your next visit. If you have headaches, dizziness, change in urinary habits, chest pain, or shortness of breath, see your doctor soon. ...Read more

Are instant noodles bad for you?

Are instant noodles bad for you?

Ok, if seldom eaten: Instant noodles are not good for a person who has access to other healthier foods. Most instant noodles are high in fat and salt, and contain msg flavor enhancer (similar to eating potato chips with added msg). A few "healthier" instant noodles have less fat, less salt, and no msg; but the "healthier" noodles are hard to find in stores. It is better to eat noodles without using the flavor packet. ...Read more

I'm worried as I eat fattis and monis instant noodles atleast once every 5 days, can it cause cancer or is very bad for me?

I'm worried as I eat fattis and monis instant noodles atleast once every 5 days, can it cause cancer or is very bad for me?

Instant noodles: Can contain a lot of sodium and other chemicals. So, try to eat them sparingly rather than every 5 days. A regular diet of them is not good for overall health and by themselves they don't cause cancer. Stick w/fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc. It takes more time and work but it's worth it. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I'm addicted to instant noodles (the noodles you put in hot water and add favour and spices above). Is it so unhealthy and dangerous as some says?

I'm addicted to instant noodles (the noodles you put in hot water and add favour and spices above). Is it so unhealthy and dangerous as some says?

Not really addiction: Many people really like a particular food and may overindulge in it, but that doesn't make it an "addiction, " which implies both loss of control and it doing far more harm than good. They have way too much salt and are pure starch, so moderation is better for your health. Over time, it can lead to obesity, diabetes and hypertension. Talk to a nutritionist about moderating it. ...Read more

I doubt it: In decades of looking over such issues, I have never seen any data suggenting a noodle fetish would affect fetal development.
