More than thirty years ago George Ohsawa introduced to the United States the principles of macrobiotics, a diet based on whole grains, vegetables, legumes and fresh unprocessed foods. Today the widespread acceptance of is precepts is reflected in mainstream nutritional advice and endorsed by the federal government and most physicians.
While at first glance the traditional macrobiotic regime may seem exotic and complicated, Lisa Turner summarises these principles in an easy-to-follow format and then provides the practical information needed to make macrobiotics work for you, including tips on how to buy and use natural ingredients, step-by-step details on cooking and cutting techniques and a month of recommended meal plans. Also included are shopping lists, mail order resources, tips for travellers and a glossary of terms - all you need to create a full, healthy and more pleasurable life by following a diet that's not completely, but mostly, macro.
