Super No-Cook Noodle Soup – Serves 1
The idea of taking noodle soup on the road is probably as popular as eggplant at a kid’s birthday party, but this is different. Trust me, I’m a doctor. Well not really, but it is good. It’s cheap and easy (hold back the jokes) and it’s really good for you… especially if you need something packed with vitamins to pull you out of a cold. There are just 10 ingredients and it’s ready to eat in 10 minutes. You can also prepare it a day or two before you head out and, when you’re on the road, just add boiling water and let it do its thing. Whether it’s a cold night or a sunny day at home or on the road, you’ll have a refreshing and zesty snack. And if you don’t like it, you’ve only wasted ten minutes… which is way less time than it takes to choose something to watch on Netflix.

Think about what will happen if Trump becomes president for 10 minutes and, when ready to eat, stir ingredients thoroughly and chow down – wondering why you’re only just trying this now.
If you’ve got the need for meat, add cooked strips of chicken, pork or beef (although if you’re planning on refrigerating the meal before eating it, make sure the meat has cooled down before you add it to the other ingredients).
