@boywithnojob Do you find yourself making nuggets or fish sticks on the side of every meal so your kids will just eat something? Or, do you find that your kids snack so much throughout the day that by dinner time they don't want to eat? One of these things isn't all that bad, the other is super annoying and hopefully what follows will help make dinner prep and mealtime a bit easier. Let's start with the latter, snacking all day.

This ramen can be prepared in so many different ways. It can be made with meat, made vegetarian (when the egg is added), or it can be totally vegan.
