Boycotting a Few Foods For the Month of May

One of my biggest addictions is ramen noodles. Specifically the spicy Korean type. One of my favorites is a Shin Ramyun brand. It is delicious and quick and very satisfying. The problem is the MSG (monosodium glutamate) and the noodles are dried via frying. It has a tremendous amount of sodium and carbohydrates for one package.


I recently resorted to an alternative ramen noodle brand. The Nissin Choice Ramen brand with a savory herb chicken flavor. 80% fat free and 25% less sodium. The fat free is because the noodles are baked and not fried, which is good, but it is still a carbohydrate. The 25% less sodium is also good, but sodium still makes you bloated. Overall this brand makes you VERY full and satisfied too.

We normally make breakfast every morning, but if we’re in a rush we grab something quick. We maybe do that four times a month (once a week).

So wish me and Nick “Good Luck”. No more ramen noodles and McDonald’s breakfasts will be a tough task, but I have faith we can do it.
