Miso Soup - Your Friend!

Postby Kellicopter » Tue Apr 21, 2009 5:03 pm

I cant tell you guys how many times a sachet of miso has stopped me from having a massive blowout at my danger times of 11:00am and 4:00pm (i write this cos im having one now! ;)) its super flavourful with only 28 cals and less than a gram of fat. it feels so satisfying for some reason! see's me through until dinner. i buy 12 sachets for about $3.50 at the supermarket

I use the Hikari brand. Sodium is 809 mg per serve but as I seem to have an aversion to adding salt to my food when cooking it I'm not bother by salt content :) .

I eat it for breakfast every day with rice. Keeps me full until lunchtime - cereals, toast etc. just don't do it for me.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Im not that sure about the percentage of calories in food. So is soup a good substitute for dinner/lunch also?

Well I bought the Hikari brand and had one for lunch today and it was yum yum yum and truely filling. Also cheap as chips too which was a bonus.

Yup it's high in sodium at 650mg a serve but so are most soups.

Thanks for the reccy guys

If it tastes that good it's probably chock full of the flavour enhancer MSG (Look for 621 on food labels) or different enhancer 635. I find this (621) is in most savoury snacks eg. biscuits, chips, frozen stuff like pies, even seafood extender/cocktail! Ever had 1 chip and then want to eat the packet? I have a soup to fill my urge to eat MSG. Yum. I'll look for Miso as it sounds healthy. :lol:

where do you buy it from and does it taste alright?

Does it have a strong flavour of asian spices/blend?

Ok so now totally addicted to Miso Soup. I've been having it every couple of days for lunch but veggie it up with some Bok Choy, mushrooms, snow peas and corn and add a bit of tofu for protein and I love it. It's so low in calories and so filling.

Thanks so much for the reccy guys.

Oh and as for the flavour for those unsure - it's just sort of a hearty broth flavour, not overly asian style at all.
