    Default Ramen noodles

    Are ramen noodles a good food to eat. And if so would it be good post-workout to feed my muscles.
    It's not where you start it's where you finish.

    Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is Nothing...

    They are low GI carbs (bad), high in sodium and saturated fats and they have a parafin coating on the noodles which is not conducive to proper digestion.

    Use proper pasta and sprinkle on whatever flavours you like, its easy peezy lemon squeezy.

    just looking at a pack of them seems to fill my sodium intake for a day or two

    I am a big fan of the Barella Plus pasta (pretty new not sure if its out everywhere) if you ever see it its worth a try

    I would say the sodium is a little excessive.
