There are times when grabbing a package of ramen noodles from a truck stop or convenience store can be especially tempting. They are:
- inexpensive: sometimes as little as 29 cents for a package.
- quick to make: important if you are pressed for time and what trucker isn’t?
- easy to make: add boiling water and stir, add a flavor packet and eat.
- filling: one packet makes two servings, but most people eat it all themselves.
However, the kind you buy on the road are usually loaded with salt; almost 1,000 milligrams for some brands.
