I've been buying more organic vegetables, eating grass-fed meat (and less of it), and avoiding that second helping that leaves me feeling stuffed.
But sometimes ya just gotta have a bowl of ramen noodle soup, especially on these cold, damp Fall days. Today I dared to look at the ingredients listed on the label—notice that there are two lists, one for the noodles and one for the soup base.
Just a quick look shows that each of the lists contains things my food guru Michael Pollan says you should especially avoid—ingredients that are:
- unfamilar (like disodium guanylate)
- unpronounceable (see above), and
- more than five in number
Sorry, Michael, I'm sure you're right. I did notice today that the chicken flavor soup's aroma had no trace of chicken smell. But I slurped the noodles down anyway. And enjoyed it.
