Miso Soup, Simply Amazing

Miso Soup Only Natural
Continuing with our Japanese inspired blog I enjoyed lots of delicious, healthy miso soup during my time there and, now that I’m home I’m craving it already so I’m going to share the recipe. What better way to introduce Japan’s premier superfood into your diet. Miso provides immune and digestion boosting probiotics, nutritious protein, plus nutrients like copper, manganese and vitamin K. It’s reputed to have blood pressure controlling and cancer fighting properties. Once you add it to your diet you’ll quickly grow to love it’s deeply savory flavour. There are various types of miso from the darker saltier types to the sweeter white ones. Always make sure you’re buying an unpasteurized miso and never boil it as you destroy its properties by doing so. Try it in all sorts of soups and casseroles as well as dressings, marinades and spreads.

Recipe of the Month – Bone Broth

Bone broth, the elixir of life?

Receipe of the Month Bone Broth
If you’re vegetarian or vegan look away now, this post isn’t for you. Bone broth is nothing more than a long simmered soup made from animal or fish bones plus vegetables and other seasonings if you like. It’s nothing new and forms part of practically every culture’s native culinary traditions. Our parents and grandparents certainly made soup from animal leftovers and now it seems that nutritionists are linking regular consumption of this with many, many benefits.

Here are the main benefits that I’ve come across. 

1. Heal and seal your gut. According to Jill Grunewald, a holistic nutrition coach and founder of Healthful Elements, a cup a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome but it’s also good for protecting non-leaky guts. The gelatin in the bone broth (found in the knuckles, feet, and other joints) helps seal up holes in intestines. This helps cure chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances.

2. Protect your joints. Taking glucosamine supplements to help with joint pain has been common knowledge for years, but it turns out that bone broth has glucosamine too. But unlike pills, the broth also includes a host of other goodies that help keep your joints happy, healthy, and pain-free. The chondroitin sulfate in bone broth has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis.
