03 The Savoury Lunchtime Saviour

A more gourmet ap­proach to your 1pm respite in the steam­ing form of Bone Dad­dies’ Yuzu Tonkotsu ra­men (£11.40) de­liv­ers a heady broth of umami flavour and world-beat­ing health ben­e­fits. Ari­gato in­deed

Men's Health (UK) - - Time -

In its na­tive Ja­pan, nu­tri­tious, ready-to- go ra­men lines the aisles of 7-Elevens and street food stalls alike – which is just one rea­son why Ja­pan ranks as a world leader for life ex­pectancy. In Bri­tain, we should be so lucky. Thank­fully, the whole­some in­gre­di­ents and care­ful prepa­ra­tion in­her­ent in Bone Dad­dies’ sig­na­ture ra­men al­lows you to pick up a gas­tro­nomic longevity lunch or­der – fea­tur­ing braised pork belly, soft-boiled Clarence Court eggs and sautéed bam­boo strips, no less – without the air­fare or evening classes in Ja­panese.

And you can take heart from the lat­est re­search: a study pub­lished in the Bri­tish Med­i­cal Jour­nal found no links be­tween pork’s sat­u­rated fat and heart dis­ease, while reg­u­larly con­sum­ing bam­boo has the ef­fect of low­er­ing harm­ful LDL choles­terol, keep­ing your heart tick­ing over un­til 5pm and well be­yond. “Bone broths con­tain huge amounts of the amino acid glycine, proven to sup­port joint health and sleep,” says Price. Prob­a­bly best to take your tie off, though.

“A lack of re­deem­ing fea­tures sees this bag drop to sixth spot. They’re high in carbs, salt and fat, but low in fi­bre. Best saved for emer­gen­cies.”
