Whose in the mood for a fresh tasting sushi inspired salad?
This easy to make salad featured organic edamame beans, brown rice (yay complex carbs), sun-dried tomato, and a sesame ginger dressing with miso. If you’re new to the miso train- jump on board!

Miso is a probiotic, which means it contains healthy bacteria to populate our gut- improving digestion, mood, and brain function. Miso makes for delicious salad dressings and stir fry sauces.
