The hot days are continuing, isn't it?
When you go outside, you feel stuffy and hot, and when you're inside the office, it's chilly because the air conditioner works so well... Where on earth is the most comfortable place?
Hello, this is Yukimi from MISOVATION staff.
The other day, on my day off, I went to a natural park deep in the mountains with my family and had a relaxing forest bath. In the past, people used to prefer the sea when it came to summer, but as the years go by, it's becoming more like the mountains.
This is the time of the year when your appetite drops due to the heat, your autonomic nerves are disturbed, you get irritated, and you are prone to physical problems. This time, I would like to introduce the story of "Miso soup is effective against summer fatigue."

This year too, we have been hearing news about people being rushed to the hospital due to heatstroke, as the heat continues to be unusually hot all over the country. Heatstroke, which is caused by disturbances in body temperature regulation and loss of water and salt in the body, is a serious condition that can be life-threatening.
The key to preventing heatstroke is to replenish water and salt well. But when you're working, you tend to neglect hydration.
In addition to being able to take in this water and salt content in miso soup, you can also take in potassium, vitamins, and minerals if the ingredients are vegetables and seaweeds. You can get the nutrition you need without even realizing it. It's also nice to be able to eat lightly even when you don't have an appetite.
In addition, you can expect the following effects to prevent summer fatigue.
・Methionine, which has a sedative effect, helps you relax even in the irritated heat. ・It warms your body, which tends to cool you down, from the inside, improving the intestinal environment. Beautiful skin effect for sensitive skin
Miso soup is a strong ally for a body that is tired from the heat. Incorporate it into your daily meals and spend the summer without feeling tired!
The recommended miso soup ingredients that you want to actively take when you are feeling tired from the summer are pumpkin, eggplant, tofu, and pork.
Pumpkins and eggplants have a strong antioxidant effect, and can be expected to be effective in preventing spots on skin damaged by strong UV rays in summer.
In addition, eggplants are rich in potassium, which is lost through sweating, and the skin contains a lot of nasunin, a type of polyphenol, which helps the body recover from fatigue.
Tofu is easy to eat even when you have no appetite, and you can easily take in the protein you need to recover from fatigue and maintain muscle strength. Pork, which is rich in vitamin B group, also helps with fatigue recovery.
How about drinking miso soup made with plenty of seasonal summer ingredients to soothe your tired body from the heat?
However, if you don't have much of an appetite and want something warm, we recommend adding ice to the cold miso soup to make it a local specialty of Miyazaki prefecture called hiyashiru. It's delicious to eat with somen noodles.
I want to eat miso soup in the summer and spend every day in good health. There are 3 points I would like to recommend MISOVATION to you!
1. I'm tired of cooking with fire on a hot day when it's easy to make in the microwave. MISOVATION is easy to cook, just pop it in the microwave and you won't be bothered even on a hot day.
2. All the recommended ingredients for summer are included!
In fact, MISOVATION contains all of the recommended ingredients for summer: pumpkin, eggplant, tofu, and pork! Even if you buy vegetables and ingredients and have leftovers... you can feel free to eat them.
By the way, it is also recommended to microwave okra for about 40 seconds and top it with okra, which is highly nutritious and has an intestinal effect.
3. Enjoy various arrangements
With MISOVATION, you can also enjoy a “little” arrangement of seasonings. If you have no appetite, try adding curry powder to increase your appetite with the power of spices, or add grated ginger to warm your body when your body is cold in the air conditioner. Please.
There are times when it is difficult to have an appetite, but in the summer it is important to have a nutritional balance. You can't eat a lot of raw vegetable salads, and there are many light-colored vegetables such as lettuce, and you tend to lack green and yellow vegetables with high nutritional value. At MISOVATION, you can take vegetables as hot vegetables, and there are also plenty of green and yellow vegetables. Please use MISOVATION to survive the summer in good spirits!
See you next time♪
