Discover the secrets of Japanese superfoods and learn how you can incorporate them in your daily meals!

Yumi Komatsudaira grew up in her family's seaweed shop, snacking on the green treats on which her family built their health-based culinary business. Now she shares the secrets of healthy eating that have guided the Japanese for ages.

Superfoods are the life-giving ingredients that our bodies need for balance, wellness, healing, and longevity. Cholesterol-reducing, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, gut-healthy—the list of their benefits goes on and on. The Japanese—who face fewer health issues, less obesity, and have longer lifespans than those in other countries—have long known the power of these key ingredients.

In this book, Komatsudaira combines her extensive expertise with ocean vegetables and Japanese cooking to show you how to create simple, delicious, and super-healthy Japanese-style meals at home.

The power-packed, super-nutritive dishes include:
  • Red Quinoa Salad with Hijiki and Kabocha
  • My Grandma's Scattered Sushi Bowl
  • Napa Cabbage, Potato and Bacon Miso Soup
  • Edamame Hummus
  • Yakitori Grilled Chicken Wings
  • Okinawa-Style Braised Kombu and Pork
  • Matcha Cheesecake
  • Kombu Smoothies with Lemon Yogurt and Blueberries

Unlock the power of nature's goodness, Japanese style. Japanese Superfoods allows you to discover a healthier way to eat while opening a whole new world of flavor and power-packed nutrition.
