Black bean noodles
Black bean noodles is a Korean dish that is loved by everyone so much. The natives of South Korea they have assigned a day to eat only black bean noodles, which is April 14th. Those who do not have a Valentine usually spend their day eating black bean noodles. Instant noodles are cheap, delicious and, if you buy those in styrofoam cups, you don’t even need a plate and cutlery to enjoy a hot meal. (“Meal” is probably too generous a word.) Especially for freshmen who live in a dormitory and do not have access to a kitchen, instant snacks are offered that are easy to prepare when there is a famine and the canteen or cafeteria is closed. There is probably a small percentage of students who do not really live from it, but still eat them most of the night. Which begs the question: were instant noodles healthy at all for you? And what would happen if you ate them all the time, say six or even seven nights a week? Abby Sharp, a dietitian from Toronto and author of the book Mindful Glow Cookbook says “In a package of instant noodles to which only water needs to be added, you have nothing but carbohydrates and salt. The same goes for those noodle bricks that need a few minutes of cooking.
Two servings of noodles in a glass already reach that limit – and that doesn’t include pizza, fast food and other junk full of sodium that students usually practice. Consuming too much salt can increase a person’s risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke in the long run, the CDC warns. But in the short term, absorbing so much sodium is likely to lead to serious water retention, White says. That can lead to weight gain and feelings of bloating, slowness and lethargy, he says. All that sodium would also lead to dehydration, especially if a student pours noodles with half a crate of beer or a few vodka-red bulls. Dehydration can lead to poor physical and cognitive function, including problems with memory and attention maintenance – which is not ideal if the student is approaching the exam. It can also cause headaches and constipation, according to research from the University of North Carolina.
