The Healthy Way to Cook Instant Noodles

I truly believe that good parenting also includes healthy cooking especially for our children...

TWO WAYS OF COOKING INSTANT NOODLES:

THE USUAL WAY:

1.0 Put the noodles into a pot with water.
2.0 Throw in the powder.
3.0 Let it cook for around 3 minutes.

Believe it or not, this is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles. By doing this, when we actually boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structures of the MSG causing it to be toxic.The other thing that you may or may not realized is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have taken the noodles.

UNUSUAL WAY: (THE HEALTHIER WAY)

1.0 Boil the noodles in a pot with water.
2.0 Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains WAX.
3.0 Boil another pot of water till boiling and put the noodles into the hot boiling water and then shut the fire.
4.0 While the water is very hot, put the ingredient with the powder into the water, to make noodle soup.
5.0 However, if you need dry noodles, take out the noodles and add the ingredient with the powder and toss it to get dry noodles.

SOMETIMES YOU MUST RESEARCH IF THE USUAL WAY IS THE CORRECT WAY!!!

Hmmm is there really a "right" way to eat wax and MSG? (I do love instant noodles though - I just wouldn't feed them to my kid).

The tidbit about the noodles being coated with wax is very interesting and something I had certainly never heard before.

I tend to only use about half (or slightly more) of the seasoning mix that comes with either noodles or rice since it's always very high in salt and often the flavor is a bit overwhelming anyway.

Hi Rob, I also did not believe this, but when my aunt does this type of cooking, that's when I started to believe. And you are right, the seasoning contains too much salt.
Thanks for visiting.
