About these ingredients:

Purple Cabbage

Carrots

Another great antioxidant booster

Coriander

Helps with detoxification and is a natural chelator (ridding our bodies of harsh heavy metals).

Miso

Is a delicious fermented food, making it a probiotic and encouraging the growth of good gut bacteria. It is rich in enzymes which assist in the easy digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients.

Tempeh

is also fermented, a rich source of plant-based protein and has the added benefit of improving bone density through its calcium content. 

Ginger

Is a flavourful anti-inflammatory spice that has powerful medicinal properties, including the alleviation of nausea and indigestion. 

Tamari

Is often lower in sodium than soy sauces, and generally gluten-free (always check the label!)

Sesame oil

Has a reasonably high smoke-point making it ideal for cooking, as well as being a healthful choice (in moderation) for lowering blood pressure and blood glucose levels due to its high mineral and antioxidant content.
