The One With All The Miso

In another episode of What I Ate Wednesday we explore the in’s and out’s of my typical Macrobiotic day. In the mornings I have been alternating between smoothies and this amazing whole grain wrap. The wrap has a garlic spread, smashed avocado, lox, spinach, and an egg.

One of the keys to a Macrobiotic diet is embracing miso. It is so good for your overall health and actually incredibly versatile. I started with the soup in a jar last week with red miso and this week experimented with miso/ginger broth from Trader Joes. The broth makes an excellent base for veggies and tofu. Depending on how much you add it can either be an excellent snack or a nice filling meal. I’ve gone a bit seaweed crazy, a phrase I never thought I would hear myself say, but the first day I put way to much in. There is such a thing as too much seaweed. This recipe fully embraces the “whatever floats your boat” lifestyle. I added some shaved carrots, edamame, mushrooms, a small handful of arame seaweed, and sriracha tofu (pre-made from TJ’s). I just heated it all together over medium high heat for about ten minutes.

While I try to incorporate more grains into my diet I am also fully embracing this beautiful Fall weather we have been having. I am having a field day with squash and this is absolutely the year of the Delicata! This recipe is one of my new Fall favorites. It hits every one of your tastebuds with all encompassing goodness. Feta cheese is not part of the Macrobiotic diet but would be PHENOMENAL in this.
