  • 3 oz natto
  • 2 tbsp kimchi Select the spice level that suits your taste, especially when it comes to breakfast it's a good idea to avoid things that are overly spicy
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt In the US you can find Bulgarian yogurt made of organic milk and plain with no added sugar at Trader Joe's.


  • Add your preferred spices to the natto. For this particular breakfast I ate the natto cold out of its pack by adding a tablespoon of olive oil and a few drops of Tabasco sauce, mixing these in slowly.
  • Kimchi can be enjoyed on its own, also cold.
  • Finishing with the yogurt helps soothe the spices from the natto and kimchi. You can eat the yogurt as is, or have it the way Robert Marchand does.


You can add a small coffee (no added sugar preferably) or substitute some the ingredients you don't like with a cheese you do like.
