#Vegetarian Natto Mushrooms Pasta

Starting from last year, after reading several animal cruelty posts, and following peta on facebook, listening to Hai Tao Fashi talks.. i decided to slowly convert myself to be a vegetarian. Therefore for a start, every month there will be 10 days of vegetarian diet.

so sharing some dishes that i will make over here!

Natto Mushrooms Pasta 

Here are some of the many health benefits of natto:

Natto is especially rich in vitamin K2, which could reduce bone loss in post-menopausal women by as much as 80 per cent

Fermented soybeans such as natto contain Vitamin PQQ, which is very important for the skin.

Vitamin K is repeatedly shown to reduce blood clots by slowing arterial calcification, enhance liver function and encourage the flow of urine.

Vitamin K2 has a better bioavailability that K1. Studies show that this molecule remains in the body for a longer period and is more effective at lower doses, hence is much more bio-effective.

Additionally, natto suppresses immune reactions.
