I like miso. I like the flavors it adds to foods. It’s less salty than soy sauce but can add a similar umami to foods.
I decided to find out if it’s healthy, just okay, or not healthy.
I discovered that according to BBC Good Food it’s good: “Miso is rich in essential minerals and a good source of various B vitamins, vitamins E, K and folic acid. As a fermented food, miso provides the gut with beneficial bacteria that help us to stay healthy, vibrant and happy; good gut health is known to be linked to our overall mental and physical wellness.”
According to Healthline it’s okay: “Miso consumption is generally safe for most people. However, it does contain a large amount of salt. Thus, it may not be a good choice for individuals who need to limit their salt intake due to a medical condition. In addition, miso is relatively high in vitamin K1, which can act as a blood thinner.”
I didn’t find anyone that said it’s not healthy – I probably could have if I had searched longer, but I didn’t see the point.
I am happy to continue adding miso when I want – especially after stocking up at Eurasie.

Is anyone else watching CuriosityStream?
Am I the last to find out about it?
I loved TLC when we lived in the U.S. The Learning Channel. I have no idea if it still exists but it was my favorite thing to watch, back in pre-Netflix days.
I saw lots of ads on Facebook for CuriosityStream over the holidays.
I never click on Facebook ads.
Until this one.
It looked slightly interesting, then they offered an annual subscription for $12.00. That’s a dollar a month. It’s winter. I clicked.
The first good thing about it is that it’s available here in France without a VPN. Which means that it’s likely available almost everywhere.
The second good thing about it is that it has lots of really interesting stuff. It’s all ‘documentaries’ – meaning that it’s all educational, but we love that. There are themed series, as well as longer singles. If the presenter is good / interesting / entertaining we watch, regardless (almost) of topic. So far there has only been one series that we stopped watching after 10 minutes – the presenter had a near perfect monotone.
I just thought I would suggest a bit of interesting viewing for all of you who, like me, are not watching sports at the moment. (Football in the U.S., rugby in Europe).
