Food Diary 08.07.2019

Sort of fasting day today…  It´s 19:49 right now, we have our first “meal” which is nothing else but a fake “miso soup”. Fake because it´s not really soup, it´s hot water mixed with haf broth cube and 2 teaspoons of miso paste.   According to one tablespoon of Japanese Miso seasoing has the following nutritional summary.


Okay, fine all carby carb… I added about 1 teaspoon to husband´s “broth” and 2 teaspoons in mine (I crave saaaaaaalt) and probably will go to sleep with this. Tomorrow is another day to eat 🙂

“Miso is a paste made from fermented soybeans often mixed with other ingredients. It’s a versatile condiment available in many varieties.

Miso contains a good amount of vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds. One ounce (28 grams) generally provides you with (1):

  • Calories: 56
  • Carbs: 7 grams
  • Fat: 2 grams
  • Protein: 3 grams
  • Sodium: 43% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 12% of the RDI
  • Vitamin K: 10% of the RDI
  • Copper: 6% of the RDI
  • Zinc: 5% of the RDI

It also contains smaller amounts of B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium and phosphorus, and is a source of choline

Interestingly, the varieties made from soybeans are considered to be sources of complete protein because they contain all the essential amino acids needed for human health

Moreover, the fermentation process used to produce miso makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients it contains

The fermentation process also promotes the growth of probiotics, beneficial bacteria that provide a wide array of health benefits. A. oryzae is the main probiotic strain found in miso

That said, miso is also very salty. Thus, if you’re watching your salt intake, you may want to ask your health care practitioner before adding large quantities to your diet.¨
