Cup noodle nostalgia

The Clairvoyant's uncle sent a balikbayan box from the US containing all kinds of goodies. These incuded clothes, toys and food. Among the food items were chocolates, cereals and coffee. What we didn't expect among the food were boxes of noodles. To those suddenly reacting to this as "unhealthy" I would say that everything is basically unhealthy if not eaten in moderation. You certainly don't eat these instant noodles in large quantities and for every meal. This and other variations of excesses are definitely unhealthy.

We got a box of Maruchan Instant Lunch noodles as part of our share of the balikbayan box contents.
Health issues aside, the noodles tasted good and brought back memories of eating hot cup noodles during winter in Japan.
We eat this once in while as a quick meal. What you can do to increase nutrition with these meals is to mix in some more vegetables as the noodles cook with the hot water. If you're not so picky, I can assure you it would be a satisfying enough meal.
