The Japanese diet, in general, is characterized by being a healthy one. That is why it is believed that Japan is the country with more centenaries in the world (there are about 70,000 registered). According to data from the WHO, its life expectancy is the highest on the planet.
The traditional breakfast is a combination of ingredients full of energy. While classic Western breakfasts with milk, toast, butter, or croissants, for example, are full of saturated fats and sugars, Japanese breakfasts are more balanced and nutritious. With a perfect balance between protein, carbohydrates, and vegetables, accompanied by green tea.
Miso soup is often on the menu, along with rice, a side of pickled vegetables or cooked vegetables, and something high in protein, such as fish or fermented soybeans, known as natto.
Easy preparation: you can purchase or prepare many of the dishes, such as the soup, rice, and side items the evening before.
Balanced and nutritious: the combination of different foods delivers a hefty dose of healthy vitamins and minerals that provide many health benefits. Miso soup itself is exceptionally healthy, as are pickled vegetables and fermented soybeans.
Eating fresh, healthy ingredients each morning, in proper portions, will help to contribute to your overall health and well-being.
The Japanese breakfast improves digestion to low blood pressure. Beans and legumes, seafood, vegetables, seaweed, fermented products, and foods high in fiber but low in calories all contribute to better health.
