Created by Michio Kushi, the basis for the macrobiotic diet is to develop a sense of balance while strengthening your health. It is the art of creating a big, full and exciting life....("Macro" meaning large, and "bio" meaning life.)
Foods of this diet include whole grains, veggies and sea veggies, beans, soups, fruit, occasional fish and even a few alcoholic beverages. Frowned upon are chemically processed foods, refined sugars, dairy, eggs, nightshade veggies (potato, eggplant, tomato, chili peppers). Thank goodness, the macro-diet is about freedom and discovering your inner compass.
I am reading an incredible book on macrobiotics and will have much, much to report back. I look forward as I begin my journey to a radiant mind by eating foods created by nature to harmonize with the natural rhythms of the universe.
"As we learn the steps of this dance, we become more graceful, happy, and free."
