Natto. This is on the list because, for one, itâ€™s one of the few foods Iâ€™ve eaten that I truly donâ€™t like. But mainly, itâ€™s here because weâ€™ve really messed up the way we eat soy. Natto is fermented soybeans and very popular in Japan, which is where I had it. Itâ€™s becoming more popular here and this is most likely due to its health benefits. Nearly all the soy options weâ€™re offered in the U.S. are non-fermented. The list of health benefits of fermented soy is a mile long. Itâ€™s associated with reducing the risk of cancer, minimizing the likelihood of blood clotting, aiding digestion, increasing blood circulation, an improved immune system, improving bone density, lessening the likelihood of heart attacks, more vibrant skin, and reducing the chance of balding. And it also has strong antibiotic properties, among other things. So you might want to ditch the soy crisps, soy ice cream, and your iced soy mochas and add some natto to your diet.
