easy healthy snack: a cup of miso

Share

i want to eat healthy (macro/vegan is my preference) but i also want to eat easy! i’m always trying to figure out quick healthy snacks that are nutritious, delicious and f*ing easy!
so here’s a great snack option that  i’ve been having nearly every day: a cup of miso! i simply make it like you would a cup of tea! it’s salty and really satisfying.
miso is so good for you… here are some of the awesome health benefits of miso:
  • miso’s minerals support immune function, energy production, bones and blood vessels
  • reduces risks of cancer including breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer.
  • protection from radiation
  • immune strengthening
  • antiviral — miso is very alkalizing and strengthening to the immune system helping to combat a viral infection.
  • prevents aging – high in antioxidants, miso protects from free radicals that cause signs of aging.
  • helps maintain nutritional balance – full of nutrients, beneficial bacteria and enzymes, miso provides: protein, vitamin B12, vitamin B2, vitamin E, vitamin K, tryptophan, choline, dietary fiber, linoleic acid and lecithin.
  • helps preserve beautiful skin – miso contains linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that helps your skin stay soft and free of pigments.
  • helps reduce menopausal complaints – the isoflavones in miso have been shown to reduce hot flashes.

make a cup of miso
  1. buy the unpasteurized soybean paste at any health foods store. i like the brown rice or mellow chickpea miso but there are so many different kinds to choose from – it also keeps forever in your fridge.
  2. boil water and pull out a mug
  3. take a spoon-full of some miso – i like a nice heaping spoon-full so my miso broth is flavorful and salty! you can play with adding more etc. it’s very forgiving.
  4. wait for the water to boil and then set it aside to cool down a little, you don’t want to pour boiling water into the miso because it will kill the beneficial bacteria
  5. once the water is not piping hot, pour it into your mug over your heap of miso.
  6. mix to dissolve the miso and either sip it like broth or slurp it with a spoon!
