Favorite Japanese Diet Super-Foods: Miso

Miso is one of my favorite super foods from a traditional Japanese diet. “There is no need for a doctor if you have miso,” is a traditional Japanese saying. Eaten since ancient times, miso is a staple of a traditional Japanese diet. It was an important source of protein here when a global food supply wasn't available. I love miso and eat it just about every day!
