Healthy Hacks To Upgrade Your Favorite Childhood Meals

Your favorite ramen noodles just graduated from your dorm room.

In a pinch, it's only natural to turn to comfort food for a quick, easy meal.

But there are ways to make your childhood favorites a little more nutritious, by making your own seasoning, cutting down the sodium content, and adding veggies and protein.

Below are tips from Fix.com on how to upgrade some tried-and-true dishes, because we all need a big bowl of mac & cheese every now and again.
