“Full of Great Nutrition”
Here is my favorite dish that’s very easy to fix— it only takes 6 or 7 minutes from start to finish and it’s full of great nutrition. Ramen noodles can be found all over the world and I believe many college students owe their life to ramen noodles because they are fast, easy, and inexpensive. But those commercial ramen noodles are full of lots of sodium and are low in nutritional value.
Well here is my version which is super healthy and it’s still inexpensive and full of the great nutrition of organic corn and kale. And this version of ramen noodles contains less than 400 calories for the whole meal, plus it’s very filling.
Another Whole Foods Plant Based Diet Recipe
2 - Oz of Organic Brown Rice and Millet Ramen Noodles - Cooked - or brown rice noodles will also do. Ramen noodles cook in about 4 minutes.
1 - Cup of Organic Fresh Corn or Frozen - Steamed
1/2 - Cup of Organic Fresh Kale - Chopped
2 - Cups of Organic Low Sodium Veggie Stock — Hot— or 2 Sodium-Free Veggie Bouillon Cubes Dissolved in Hot Filtered Water.
Salt and Pepper to Taste - Take it easy on the salt… we want to keep this a low sodium dish.
Take the cooked ramen noodles and place them in a bowl and add the corn and kale and pour on the hot veggie stock.
If you like it spicy add a little bit of hot sauce.

Health Benefits of Organic Corn
Corn contains lots of very healthy antioxidants such as coumaric acid, caffeic acid, anthocyanins, ferulic acid, vanillic acid, syringic acid, and protocatechuic acid and lots of beta-carotene all of which help to prevent and repair DNA damage thus helping to prevent disease. And blue corn contains hydroxybenzoic acid which is a very powerful antioxidant and purple corn contains another antioxidant protocatechuic acid. And drying corn at high temperatures does not lower the antioxidant benefit of corn.
Corn contains a large amount of Short Chain Fatty Acids which help to prevent colon disease and cancer. Corn contains lots of fiber which is important for providing a good environment for the growth of probiotic bacteria which boosts up our immune system. One cup of corn contains about 4.6 grams of fiber making it high fiber food. And corn fiber also helps to prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, cancer, and constipation.
Corn does contain fat, but most of that fat is unsaturated good fats which are important for great health. 1 cup of organic corn contains about 5 grams of protein, making corn a nice source of protein. Corn contains zeaxanthin and lutein which help to prevent macular degeneration. Corn may also be able to lower blood pressure by preventing angiotensin-I converting enzyme from being produced… more studies to be done.
Consuming 1 or 2 cups of whole corn daily has been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels for those with type 1 and 2 diabetes… more than likely due to the high fiber content of the corn. Corn contains lectins and those lectins bind with viruses and thus inhibiting the growth of certain viral agents. There are many different types of corn including white, yellow, blue, red, purple, and even black types of corn.
The average ear of corn contains fewer calories than a large apple and only has about 1/4 the sugar content, making corn a healthy food. The average ear of corn on the cob has fewer calories than a large apple. Most people think that corn is fattening… but that’s not true, it’s just all the butter and oil that we put on corn that makes it high in calories.
Lots of cultures that live to be very old incorporate whole organic corn into their diet.
Remember to Eat Organic - Regular fruits, veggies, and grains contain up to 6 cancer causing chemicals, 12 hormone-disrupting chemicals, and another 10 disease causing chemicals… Not Good - Always Eat Organic and Stay Healthy!
