I have written about different cultures who are the trimmest, healthiest and longest living. The Japanese and Okinawan people are among them. It has been proven a plant based whole food diet is healthier than eating standard American food like hamburgers, pizza and fried chicken.
‘Sprouting of soybean prior to feeding in the grinding cum blanching unit produced soymilk and tofu with better quality products in terms improved nutritional profiles, higher soymilk index and higher tofu index, good colour characteristics and high acceptability by panellists in sensory evaluation due to absence of beany flavour and odour [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4397316/]’.
The above is a video I watched where within it I saw them make their own tofu and soy milk. It sure looked delicious to me. And, if you have the patience and time and want to save money while producing a much superior product, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t make your own!
‘What I’ve figured is that if you live a lifestyle and eat similar to those who are healthy, you will likely reap the same results through mimicry. DNA is not always the final verdict’ ~ your author
There are three things I do now particular to the Okinawan and Japanese people. I eat more tofu, vegetables and drink Japanese Tea. The tea I drink is at the bottom of this page. In my opinion, tofu, green tea and a vegetarian diet is highly recommended for what ails you! I can’t see me not drinking my daily green tea.
‘My morning hot green tea is something I really look forward to making and drinking throughout my day no matter what I’ve planned. It gives you a good energy which is unlike coffee. Coffee always made me feel a sense of ‘impending doom’ ~ your author
Coffee also made my heart ‘skip a beat’. Japanese green tea gives you a ‘peaceful energy’. I like that, it reminds me of meditation. I like feeling ‘at peace’ and drink it ‘straight’. I don’t have to add cream and sugar to tea like I used to with drinking coffee. I could never drink it ‘black’.
