When we eat ramen at home, commonly buy in semi-dried ramen noodle which usually come with individual condensed soup package. Then I boil water and cook the noodle and combine boiled hot water and the reduced soup to make soup for ramen. Also I often cook sauteed vegetables and soft boiled egg for the garnish.
However, since regularly the condensed soup contains MSG, and my body react badly; it makes my cheek and around the mouth swell, uncomfortable.
In my research, it is common to add pork flavor to ramen soup since the pork contains "umami" . This recipe is cooking braised pork, and the seasoning for pork can be used as ramen soup without MSG just combine with chicken stock. If you have miso, add some miso paste (1tsp to 2 tsps reduce the pork seasoning) into the ramen soup, which is your original yummy miso-ramen.

I often cook friend rice for weekend lunch time when my family is at home. The dish is efficient to consume left overs in my fridge and most of the ingredients can be used as the ingredients for the fried rice. You can add grilled chicken, or ground meat, I often add braised pork. Minced greens, such as cabbage and bok choy are also nice. Use leftovers in your fridge and enjoy the variety of fried rice.

I like to take good nutrition as much as at one plate.
This carrot dressing recipe is suitable for taking carotene which boosts immune system. Also it is good to take with oil-fat to take the nutrition efficiently. Also I do not peel the carrot because outside of carrot contains much more carotene than the inside. You won't taste the rough texture if you use grinder and mix very well.
