Well, guys, the inevitable happened.

I finally got sick.

The kind of sickness that usually just comes once a year in the middle of winter. Is it just me or does everyone get one bad cold each year?

I came down with it in Colorado on a photoshoot with Purely Elizabeth and luckily I was headed home that night or I would have been in real trouble. 

This is going to sound so strange but I think my mind was actually happy I came down with a cold.

Of course, it was terrible and wished that I would magically spring off the couch back to normal health. But, for the first time in a few months, I was actually and totally pinned down to the couch.

My body wasn’t going to let me go anywhere and I was really grateful for it.

I run myself to my very last leg far too often. Anyone will tell you that you’ll never work harder than you will on your own business. I seriously love what I do and I can never get enough but like everything, balance is so important. 


Ingredients like mushrooms, garlic, carrots, kale and green onions for Easy homemade healthy ramen bowls!

I spent a solid 36 hours this weekend on the couch re-watching all of the Twilight movies and eating chicken noodle soup for every meal (that was so graciously brought to me a la my boyfriend).

For the first time, I actually had 0 desire to work. Not even scroll through Insta.

I literally just wanted to lie there like a limp noodle, and nurse myself back to health one Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s cheesy scene at a time.

I will admit I got way too into the Twilight movies and watched them all twice #thankyouhulu. 

The biggest lessons I learned from this 36 hour cold were never run myself so much that I have to actually get sick to slow down.

The second lesson, adding miso paste and sriracha to canned chicken noodle soup is the best thing to happen to chicken noodle soup… EVER.

Jared left me for work on Friday with some Dayquil, a cold buster from Starbucks, a few cans of chicken noodle soup and some Top Ramen.

I love a classic soup when I’m sick, but I sipped one spoonful and realized this concoction was def going to need some hot sauce if I was going to get it down.

I also had some leftover miso soup packets from Jared’s last trip to Japan and figured it would give the chicken noodle soup a nice umami flavor.

Hands down the BEST THING to ever happen to canned chicken noodle soup.

By the time Sunday night came around, I was so inspired by my miso accident that I knew I needed to really get in the kitchen and experiment with some Asian soup flavors…

Simultaneously, this soup experiment also needed to require little effort because I was still very much not feeling well and I had Breaking Dawn Part II to finish #priorities.

Hence these homemade easy healthy ramen bowls were made!

I basically just used up the vegetables I had in the fridge, added chicken broth, some seasoning and plopped in two dried ramen packages.

Honestly, this easy ramen recipe took about twenty minutes to come together and tasted like heaven while I was sick.

I didn’t want to fuss with any protein (except a jammy egg, because a Jammy egg is always a good idea) plus it helped keep these healthy ramen bowls, healthier!

I love a good kitchen sink soup and this one hit home with all the right flavors.

Feel free to swap in whatever vegetables you have on hand and add extra sriracha if you need to clean your sinuses. 

If you’re a healthy ramen noodles lover like I am then you must make these garlic butter ramen noodles next! Add in any veggies or even top with a protein of choice!

    I hate kale. Except for in this recipe!
    This is really good and pretty easy. I double the recipe, using 1 tsp of ground ginger in place of the thumb (x2 if you double it) and omit the jalapeno slices and runny eggs. Before I add the Ramen, I turn off the pot, let it cool, and then portion it out into 2 cup containers. I put the containers in the freezer and when I want to have this soup dump it out into a pan, heat it to a simmer, throw in half a pack of ramen (I put the other have in a zippy bag for next time) and a squirt of siracha. On the days I work from home, this is my go to lunch. Thank you for sharing this!

    I have never made any ramen at home before but this was very easy and came out tasty. Since the recipe moves along quickly, definitely have all of your cutting and measuring done ahead of time and it should be a piece of cake! 🙂

    Wow this recipe was absolutely incredible. I used powered ginger package from Trader Joes because they didn’t have real ginger. I doubled the recipe and included 3 packets of the ginger. I also used about 7 packets of rice ramen from Costco. I’m a big fan of ramen, it’s hard to find a really good ramen at a restaurant. This is the best ramen I’ve ever had. I obsessed over it. Thought I was overreacting but my boyfriend agreed. So good.
