When I first started living alone it took me a while to figure this shit out. It's remarkably easy (and rewarding) to spruce up an okay dinner into a tasty dinner with just a teensie bit of creativity. Don't ever undervalue the effect of good food on your overall wellbeing
yeah, im makin shin ramyun tomorrow and plan to add fried minced meat, green onion and egg
Good job sushi! I really think that for people out on there own, picking up a couple of spices can improve quality of life imensely. Especially of your on a budget. Eating the exact same thing every day is fine if it's your favorite, but if it's just the cheapest thing You could put together it gets boring really quick. Here are some of my favorites:
-Salt (though ramen really doesn't need any more sodium, it's good for other stuff)
-crushed red pepper or chili flakes/powder
-cinnamon and nutmeg (not so sure about on ramen, though I've never tried)
Spice is a really great way to get a lot of flavor out of a bland dish. And eating boring food is really bad for your sanity, especially frequently.

Guess that explains why the spice trade was such a huge thing which built empires historically. I never really understood why something so useless was so valuable but I suppose it makes sense.
