Okinawan Soba Noodles with Tofu and Veg

Did you know that the people of the Ryukyu Islands, which includes Okinawa, are 6.5 times less likely to die from breast cancer? This is attributed in large part to their healthy diet. In honor of breast cancer awareness month, we made a traditional Okinawan lunch today. Soba noodles with tofu, carrots, broccoli, leeks, garlic, ginger, kale, mushrooms, lime juice, soy sauce and fresh basil. Served with hot green tea with soy milk and fresh mango, it was awesome. And I call the fact that the kids ate more than they threw at me a victory.
