Miso Soup- the original Ramen noodle

I heard about how Miso soup is packed with all these vitamins and minerals on the radio a while back. Then my daughter and I were eating at the local sushi restaurant a few weeks ago and she couldn't get enough of the Miso soup! So I researched it and found out it is a powerhouse of nutrition. I bought a tub of the miso paste at Harmons, our local grocery store, and now use it for a quick lunch or dinner. Oh, and it's so packed with isoflavones that 2 - 3 bowls a week for mom is supposed to prevent breast cancer. I now consider this my ramen noodle soup substitute. It's just as fast and let's be honest, way better for your kids. How does no MSG sound? I'm loving that. Serving suggestions? I drop a whole egg in at the end to add protein and bok choy for more cancer-fighting power. But I love this picture of the long, wavy noodles. Trying that today for lunch. So here's to hot soups on chilly fall afternoons with your kids. Cheers!
