the cheapest/easiest way.

Ramen = one of the food groups of the college student.

Rarely. Generally for backpacking only.

Add half of the prepared "seasoning pack", then add my own cajun spice mix. After the noodles have cooked a bit, add a pouch of chicken.

Personally, I would avoid buying Tyson products if at all possible, their animal abuse record is quite horrific...

Get it boiling piping hot and crack a raw egg into it. Stir. Instant Egg Drop soup, sorta.

Pizza, caffeine, alcohol, and sex should complete the college student's pyramid.

Pizza and booze are expensive, my boyfriend is 1500 miles away, too.

How about rock n' roll?

After noodles are cooked and put into the bowl with the hot soup, add uncooked fresh veggies such as spinach, green onion, peas or broccoli bits. Slice up a boiled egg. Add thinly sliced meat, be it beef or pork.

I love ramen noodles for lunch. I use only 1 cup of water and add lots of mixed frozen veggies (I like the broccoli, snap pea, red pepper, bamboo shoots, and water chestnut mix best). Let it boil until the noodles and veggies are cooked ,but be careful because with only half the water in the pot the noodles can scorch on the bottom of the pot. Pour into a bowl and cover with sriracha sauce.

I like using less water because it resembles fried noodles rather than soup.

I don't currently drink (aforementioned cost, plus I've gone nearly 2 years with nary a drop; tolerance would be uh, embarassingly low.)

Toss ramen noodles in large soup bowl, add water to an inch from top, microwave for 3 minutes. Stir halfway through. Drain and toss in half the salt...er, spice packet.

If you want it any fancier, cook something else. Ramen noodles are the lowest common denomintar of the food group. Our six year loves them though.

I started this thread because I can foresee a diet consisting largely of Ramen in the near future. Just wanted to know what kind of 'mix-ins' sounded appetizing.

I currently leave the house before 5 in the morning and on the nights I have class, typically don't get home until 9 at night. Can't afford to eat out all of the time, nor are the vending machine fare particularly healthy either.

you're gonna get sick if all ya eat is ramen, try to vary your diet and take multivitamins. Buy some apples/bananas etc and bring them along as snacks. You could prepare frozen meals one night (sunday?) freeze enough for the week in advance?

I buy some .95 frozen dinner things, at least there's broccoli in 'em.

I know it's hard, I'm a starving college student, too.

Think the spice packet is bad, you should hear how my wife makes hers: Oriental flavor with butter.

I love butter as well, just not fixed with that seasoning. I'll put butter on potatoes, toast, waffles, and pancakes, but that's about it. My mom used to make PBBJ sandwiches when I was a kid. Peanut butter, butter, jelly. She would put the butter on first so that the peanut butter would spread more smoothly.

D'oh! Let me clarify, I'll put butter on most bread based foods. I'd actually forgotten about muffins, it's been so long since I've had one.

Back when I did eat ramen fairly regularly (read: daily), I cooked the noodles, drained most of the water and added the spice packet, mixed it all up, added finely chopped scallions, and very finely shredded scrambled egg with some dark sesame oil. Finish up with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seed and that's lunch. Or dinner. Or breakfast. Man, those were the days....
