Good morning FitFeat friends!
Welcome to midweek! We’ll be halfway to the weekend at lunchtime today!
Speaking of lunch, I’m looking forward to mine today. I picked up a nice piece of sashimi grade tuna that I’m going to crust with sesame seeds and wasabi powder then sear on a super hot pan. I also bought a blood orange to go with it so I’m trying to decide if I want to juice it and reduce it with a little soy sauce or balsamic to make a syrupy drizzle. For the side I have some broccoli slaw that I will most likely sautée. Mmmm I hope it turns out photo-worthy for the blog!
So I have a new favorite toast obsession that may fall under the category of “Shari and Her Weird Food”! I’ll let you be the judge of that.
It’s still my favorite delicious Ezekial toast – but I’ve been topping one of the pieces with MELLOW WHITE MISO! It’s delicious! (In the pic above, the one on the right has the miso on it, left is almond butter). Drizzle a little raw organic honey on it and I’m telling you it’s AWESOME! A little salty from the miso, a little sweet from the honey. LOVE IT.
I’ve also done the same thing on Ezekial sprouted grain English muffins:
I would say it’s no more than 1 teaspoon smeared on there. You don’t want to go overboard because miso is a little high in sodium. But it is a great source of trace minerals, and because it’s a fermented food it provides beneficial bacteria and enzymes (provided you don’t overheat it).
I’ve even mixed a little miso into Tofutti (dairy-free cream cheese spread) and smeared it on my Wasa crackers:
More reading on MISO:
From the last article in the list above, I found this interesting: “Miso soup consumption is linked with up to a 50% reduced risk of breast cancer according to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.”
Do you enjoy miso? How do you like to use it?
