A new study reported at WebMD.com says America's youth may be eating too much pizza (or just not the right kind of pizza).  So what's a college student to do?!  Ramen noodles to rescue, say KUVO interns Cindy Howard and Ryan Mecillas.

It's about the things you add, says Howard (CU-Boulder).  "When we're using the regular ramen noodles we will add some basil, some chicken, some vegetables, carrots, sprouts. We'll make it like a pho" (the Vietnamese noodle dish).

There is a difference between the stable family restaurant and the "next big thing" trendy spot that has the latest food fad on fancy, overpriced display.  With some thoughts on the former, Alfonso Nuñez from La Cueva ("The Cave") in Aurora visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
