Advanced & Core Plan
Although the Maximized Living Nutrition Plans recommend staying away from conventional soy products, miso is a fermented form of soy that fits into the plans as a very healthful form of soy. Notice, I do leave out tofu which is not fermented and not recommended.
Miso dates back over 2,500 years and is a staple in Asian cuisine. It is known to stimulate digestion and energize the body. It is full of enzymes and beneficial microorganisms that will support your gut health. It also contains all essential amino acids making it a complete protein. Be sure to buy organic, non-pasteurized miso paste.
8 cups filtered water
½ cup chopped mushrooms of choice, sliced thin
½ cup organic miso paste (red or white)
1 sheet nori (dried seaweed), cut into rectangles
sea salt to taste
¾ cup chopped green onions for garnish if desired
Place water in a large pot and bring to a low simmer, add mushrooms and nori squares. Make a paste with the miso by adding a little hot water in a small bowl and mixing until smooth and then add to the pot. Simmer for 7-10 minutes but do not let it boil (you want to keep the good bacteria in tact).
