Soy Month!

For my diet, both during and after my self-healing journey with breast cancer, I only include fermented soy foods.  In Wellness Wisdom I cover in detail why I made this choice, and would like to encourage you to do your own research to make the decision that is best for you.

In honor of soy month, I thought I would highlight a fermented soy food that is a big part of my diet: Miso!

Miso: A fermented soybean paste with a texture similar to peanut butter, and a strong salty flavor.  It is used as a condiment and a flavoring agent to make the popular miso soup.
