Its so cheap! And easy. But youre right. Total junk for your body. Absolutely. Nothing but sodium and carbs and absolutelu no nutritional value whatsoever.

it is way too much sodium. It can be healthier if you will only use half of the season powder.

As for me it's actually not healthy if you eat it everyday. You can eat it once or twice a week but not everyday. Honestly I love instant noodles. Easy to prepare. I've notice on some instant noodle that says "No preservative added" what about that?

Yes you can eat it once in a while, just like me but what i do afterwards is drink a lot of water..and i mean a lot.

Yes, because of the sodium and fat levels.

It's the seasoning that can be bad for the health if you consume it everyday. It doesn't hurt if it's just once in a while. Anything too much is bad enough.
