When I write this, I have been gluten-free for one week. Seven torturous days. The worst part of this experiment is that I need to find a good ramen noodle substitute. Who cares about Chinese food, pizza, and Keebler cookies. Where is the ramen???
All those substitutes that you find online? Not so good for the ramen noodle addict. If you, too, are an addict, and you have a good substitute to share, please help a girl out.
When I was a little girl, my favorite snack after school was … a bowl of ramen noodles. I dumped some lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and whatever veggies were on hand. (Radishes were my favorite.)
I ate it whenever I didn’t feel good, too, like it was some magical potion of yumminess. What’s not to like about it? It’s fast, it’s cheap, and it’s versatile.
Did I mention that it was cheap? With the rising cost of food, you can always count on good ol’ cheapo ramen. How it hasn’t really increased in price since I was a little girl is … scary. (But delicious.)
I love ramen so much that I’m contemplating on creating an entire website dedicated to different recipes.
I literally could eat this everyday. You know those questions people ask? “If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?” It’s ramen.
Ramen isn’t very good for you, though. And it contains gluten.
I also found out that gluten-free food … big surprise, here … isn’t as tasty as the gluten form. Take out the gluten, take out the flavor.
This is seriously bumming me out. I could use a tasty bowl of ramen noodles.
