Sometimes, simple is best. Less is more. However you want to phrase it, this rings true for mealtime and snack time around here at The Creative Kitchen. What we fuel our bodies with matters greatly, and when it comes to packaged snacks and meals, we think less is definitely more. Mr. Lee’s Noodles checks all these boxes for us: real ingredients, low in sodium and sugar, with a delicious and vibrant taste! Damien Lee, the creator behind this premium noodle brand, is a full-time single dad and cancer survivor, which is what inspired the creation of Mr. Lee’s Noodles. It was during his time of chemotherapy and a strict, real-food diet that Damien Lee craved his guilty pleasure, instant noodles, but knew he couldn’t indulge as he used to, due to all the artificial ingredients. Once he was given the all-clear, he set out to revolutionize the world of instant noodles, and Mr. Lee’s Noodles was born!
From the Mouth of a Kid:
I like these noodles! The different flavors are yummy!
As a mom, I know firsthand that you can’t always have it all together, and that’s okay. Whether it’s keeping the house clean or making dinner, sometimes you just need a little help. My first priority when it comes to feeding my kids is keeping their meals and snacks full of (primarily) real ingredients, which can be pretty tricky with frozen or packaged meals. That’s not the case with Mr. Lee’s Noodles, which have quickly become a fan favorite in our household! They use real ingredients, and are low in sugar and sodium. It makes for an easy after-school snack or a quick addition to dinner when I don’t have time to make something from scratch. My kids love the bold flavors, and I love the real ingredients and low amounts of sodium, fat, and sugar. They’re so much better in all of these categories than other instant noodle brands.
