Why Shirataki Ramen Noodles?

I grew up loving noodles, including (nope, I’m not ashamed) chicken flavored Top Ramen! I used to add butter and hot sauce and green onions to it and prepare them to the exact texture that I like them— not too mushy and not too firm, and, yes, full of flavor! Hanging out with my friend Karla, I got hooked on her idea of adding an egg to it— a girl needs her protein, right? But as I grew older I became more aware of all the things that instant noodles contained that weren’t good for a growing (or grown) girl: high sodium, MSG, and a ridiculous amount of simple carbohydrates. I was heartbroken to learn that instant noodles were pretty much the ultimate junk food. So, here I am am years later and with cooking with shirataki noodles I’ve discovered a way to have all the spoils of the instant ramen ‘treats’ of my childhood in a much, much healthier version.  In the recipe for Shirataki ramen noodles (keto ramen) below, Ive recreated the flavors I used to season instant ramen noodles as a child and have topped them with healthy and delicious things that my grown up self likes to eat now, including the egg on top — just as Karla did!
