Hunk Food – Kale and Egg Ramen


I am not a health food addict. Though if you ask anyone who has spent some time eating with me they may say I am careful about what I eat. I don’t do sweets unless I’m going to make someone feel bad for not eating their homemade apple pie. I very rarely eat pasta or any other starch unless it’s sprouted grain or some such nonsense and the last bottle of soda I purchased to “quench my thirst” was probably 8 years ago. The fact of the matter is I didn’t grow up consuming that stuff and no one in my family eats a lot of so-called junk. I’m not consciously trying to be extremely healthy. I’m just much more interested in food that makes me feel good. What this normally ends up meaning is while I like my junk food (Ramen, potato chips, Chinese take-out …pizza) I usually manage to throw something in with it to make it somewhat nutritional so it doesn’t make me completely ill.

The way I see it is there is no point eating it if it isn’t going to somehow fuel my body and keep me going! I don’t have much time to eat right so I admit that I occasionally cut corners. I started thinking about how my unhealthy eating often looks kind of healthy to a lot people and decided to start sharing my unhealthy healthy eating with you my friends! You can Google healthy recipes but let’s be honest sometimes all you want is some good old crap to soften the rough edges around a bad day.  So I’m going to post some of my favorite “healthy” junk food. I shall call it Hunk food (no it does not come with Antonio Sabato)

1. RAMEN: I love you Ramen. You are my Mac n Cheese. You remind me of Happy Star Chinese Food, being a broke waitress at the KP Duty, and my beautiful roommate from Thailand whom I still lovingly refer to as Tic Tac. Tac thank you for showing me all the many ways to cook Ramen!

*Bring all of the following ingredients to a boil.

¼ cup of water

Two teaspoons of Bragg’s Vinegar (the kind with the mother in it)

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Packet of seasoning

*Add kale and stir until it cooks down.

Add noodles and cook until the noodles are al dente or still slightly chewy

Crack one egg and stir in until it is cooked
