Meal prep never tasted so good! This Paleo + Whole30 ramen noodles in a jar recipe is the perfect way to prep healthy lunches for the work or school week. Make in advance, store in mason jars and just add the hot broth mixture when you’re ready to serve.
Do I have to use ground pork with these healthy ramen noodles?
Nope. We like ground pork because it cooks up fast and adds extra flavor. You can, however, use another leftover protein like pulled pork. Other options would be ground turkey or chicken or even ground beef. Really, whatever you have on hand, you can make work!
What if my family doesn’t like cruciferous veggies?
We like adding extra veggies and greens into these healthy ramen noodles, and typically we just get the cruciferous veggies mix at Trader Joe’s. You can go with what you have on hand or whatever sounds good though. Celery would be tasty and add a little crunch. For the greens though, we definitely recommend something heartier like kale versus spinach. Spinach will just get overly wilted. Pick whatever sounds good and makes your ramen noodles colorful!
Storing and reheating your ramen noodles
You’ll notice in the instructions, we have you store the pork and veggies in mason jars, and then the broth mixture in separate mason jars. This is so that the soup ingredients don’t get mushy. All you need to do is heat up the broth mixture, either on the stove or in the microwave, and then pour over the pork and veggies. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes to heat up all the ingredients, and then stir and enjoy!

- 1 lb ground pork (or sub ground beef, chicken or turkey)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
- 4 green onions, diced , (the white and green parts are used in separate steps)

- Heat a large pan over medium heat and add pork and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is almost cooked through, about 6-7 minutes.
- While the pork is cooking, prepare the onions, garlic, ginger, cruciferous veggies and carrot as noted. Turn zucchini into zoodles using a spiralizer.
- When the pork is almost browned, add in the white part of the green onions, garlic and ginger. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.

- Prepare your mason jars. Layer the ingredients in 4 wide mouth pint jars in this order. Pork, cruciferous veggies, green onions, then zoodles.
- Pour the broth into four separate pint jars (distribute evenly). About a 3/4 full pint jar will fill the ramen noodles jar.
- For serving, all you need to do is heat up the broth mixture on the stove or in the microwave. Pour the hot broth into the zoodle jar and let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Stir to mix the ingredients and enjoy your healthy ramen zoodles!
