Easy Toshikoshi Ramen or "End of Year" Noodles with New Skinny Ramen!

Are you ready to welcome the new year and say goodbye to the old one? Then say hello to a healthy version of Toshikoshi Ramen. In Japan, New Year's Day is the most important holiday of the year, just like Christmas in the West. While New Year's Day brings parties and much hoopla, New Year's Eve is customarily spent quietly at home with friends and family -- a time to reflect on the old year. The traditional meal to have while waiting to greet the new year is toshikoshi soba. Start the new year eating right with our healthier version of ramen below, made with new Skinny Ramen and its convenient Organic Miso Soup Base packet to cut fat, carbs, and calories dramatically.  Yoi otoshi o!  --- よいお年を!Wishing you a happy new year!
