fitpotnoodles

Pot Noodles were all the rage back in the day, giving that instant hit of carb, flavouring, salt and the sachet of red sauce. So of course they had to be recreated healthy-style. These are amazing.

Nutrition info
Nutrients depend on what veg you choose to put in your pot but it's advisable to include something green and leafy such as spring greens or pak choi because green leafy veg is rammed with nutrients! Its hugest claim to fame is in its amounts of vitamins K, C and A. Vitamin K plays a key role in bone health. Bones are something we take for granted until they start to deteriorate in old age. we've all seen elderly people who are hunched over because their spines have degenerated. It doesn't have to be that way if we eat healthily and take exercise, and vitamin K is a big part of having healthy and robust bones.

Vitamin C, as we all know, is fab for immunity but did you know it also makes healthy skin and connective tissue? Not only that but it helps iron to do its job, having vitamin C with iron-rich foods is a very wise-move, and funnily enough dark green leafy veg has iron!

Vitamin A will make your eyes much happier, it's so important to look after your eyesight, just think what joy it brings!

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people.
