I think coffee shops like Starbucks would make a mint if they offered a mugs of miso during the winter. Its fast cheap healthy and really hits the spot. Heck they should sell a tablespoon of coconut butter too. How far behind the cutting edge do they want to be.
whoops, going off subject.
Other ideas for winter tonics?
Cool Facts About Miso and Its Health Benefits:
-With as little as 11 calories per gram of protein, it’s a great source of healthy protein.
-A low fat, high flavor addition to dishes; the strong flavor of miso means a little goes a long way, allowing you to cut down on calories and salt.
-It keeps your systems in balance by alkalizing the body (the body needs to be in an alkaline state, as opposed to an acidic state, to maintain wellness. Acidity is created in the body as a reaction to substances such as animal protein, coffee and sugar.)
-An excellent source of B vitamins, which may include B12 (There are conflicting reports on whether miso is a viable source of B12. This disagreement may be due to the variation of fermentation time and where and how the products being tested were produced.)
-Aids digestion and nutrient intake (This is possibly due to the digestive enzymes, lactobacilli, salt-resistant yeasts and beneficial micro-organisms present in miso) These benefits can be lost if cooked away, so avoid boiling or overcooking miso.
-A good source of manganese, tryptophan, zinc, phosphorus, copper, omega 3 fatty acids, lecithin, and linoleic acid.
