About the author

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Ramen Noodle Salad

Ingredients

Ramen Noodle Salad with Ginger Soy Vinaigrette
Ingredients for 5 servings

  • 8oz brown rice (Ramen) noodles (OR spaghetti of your choice, I recommend chickpea or wheat)
  • 1 1/2 lb chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • red chili flakes to taste
  • Salad
    • 2 cups finely shredded (red) cabbage
    • 1 large carrot, Julienne peeled into strips/noodles
    • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 3 radish, thinly sliced
    • 3 green onions, chopped
    • 5 servings of ginger soy vinaigrette (see recipe below)
  • Garnish
    • fresh cilantro
    • sesame seeds
    • green onion
Steps
  1. Cook noodles according to instructions given, then set aside in a bowl.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and once hot, spray with a little oil.  Add diced chicken breasts.  While the chicken cooks in the skillet, sprinkle in soy sauce and red pepper flakes if desired.  Toss the chicken and cook it through, about 6 to 8 minutes.  Set aside to cool.
  3. To a large bowl, add the cooled and cooked noodles along with the ingredients for the salad.  Gently toss and mix everything together.
  4. Add some dressing (see below) and gently toss together.  Add the chicken and toss together.
  5. For each individual serving, add the dressing.  I do not recommend or advise mixing ALL of the dressing unless you want to.
  6. Garnish and enjoy!  Note: if you want more dressing for the individual servings but don’t want the extra calories, simply use lime juice and/or low sodium soy.
