This delicious salad is a great way to boost levels of healthy fats and it is also very supportive of hormonal health thanks to the detoxifying properties of the miso, cabbage and seaweed.
Seaweed is thought to have the broadest range of minerals of any foods and it has been shown to have cancer-protective qualities, be great for digestion, heart health and being nature’s richest source of iodine help boost the thyroid.
Many people are deficient in iodine which is vital to thyorid health and seaweed is a fantasitc source. Iodine is also important for protection against breast cancer.
Miso is rich in B vitamins and probiotics (amoung many other nutrients) and so further supports hormonal health and helps counteract stress in the body. I tend to eat this quite regularly as it is so easy to make and is very filling and satisfying. To really bring out the flavours, serve with a dash of wasabi and fresh lime.
This is also a great recipe when on a detox as it is packed full of liver-supportive nutrients.
Note: if possible look for unhulled sesame seeds and tahini made from unhulled seeds. The hulls act as a protective layer which keeps the oil more stable and prevents it going rancid. The unhulled seeds also contain more minerals such as calcium.
