Purple Cleansing Simple Miso Soup

My tum has been troubling me as of late and I needed something simple to calm it down and, er… get things moving. Miso soup it was! I used to have miso soup every morning when I was more macrobiotic and I think it’s time I started up that habit again.

The last time I made a cleansing veggie soup was almost 2 years ago!

If you ever wanted to hear more about my macrobiotic trials…

Just one more day to get through and then it’s the weekend. Do you have any plans?

My plans are up in the air; Valentine’s day is Monday but maybe we will celebrate early. I think it also might be time for me to do some shopping. I am sorely lacking in style as of late.

    No valentines plans for me this year. If I get good news tomorrow I might host a dinner for friends this weekend.

    This cleaning soup sounds great. Let me know if it works for getting things moving.

    Thanks for that link Maggie! :D

    We are celebrating on Saturday night – I am making bay scallops gratin as our first course, filet mignon (you can ignore that!) and wedding cake for dessert – my husband loves wedding cake! :D

    I love miso soup, especially when it is made from red or dark miso. I also have tummy / gut problems, but I haven’t tried miso soup for that so far. What I do then is to eat a lot of onions (not raw, that’s too hard for me, but I like them grilled, and can easily finish off 4 or 5 a day) – I tend to get a crazy appetite for them and eating them really helps to feel better.

    What is in the jar at the top- it looks like a homemade pickle!

      @Bridget: That’s the soup! Cabbage, wakame, onions.
