    DETROIT -
    Food is getting more creative by the day, it seems. With buns made of donuts and chicken breasts, to taco shells made of waffles. But a new contender has entered the ring of odd ball food trends. Meet the ramen burger...

    I love Ramen. It's quick, it's easy. it's filling and it tastes good. And it's cheap.

    hmm

    ramen noodles aren't like a healthy replacement or very tasty so I wonder what the appeal is?

    It was a dorm room staple in college, to be sure, but that was back in the day when I wasn't concerned about the sodium content of foods.

    Cronuts: yes.

    Hemisphere of solid ramen in place of hamburger bun: no.

    That's how I realized I had high blood pressure. I just started eating these about a year ago. I love them, but they sure put your blood pressure through the roof, because of the high sodium.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Lo, fried ramen isn't exactly new, nor a ramen burger, or ramen salad, ramen eggs, I could go on.

    For less sodium, just don't use the entire pack of seasoning. A few sprinkles is enough for me.

    Considering I can get 5 packs for a buck or under, that is not bad for times when broke. That's a buck for most of week's food.

    Not healthy food by any means, but survival food. Also, ramen noodles contain a good bit of fat for what they are, so so sodium and carbs are not the only unhealthy problem. They are simply unhealthy, but cheap and filling.

    Unless I have included a link, it is my opinion and only my opinion that I am expressing.
