What is the Basis of a Macrobiotic Diet?
"Did you know that the average American eats the same five to seven foods over and over again?"
The macrobiotic way of eating is based on a diet of whole grains and vegetables. These traditional foods of all civilizations and cultures create peaceful energy within us. Supplementary foods such as beans or bean products, sea vegetables, soup, fish, or other foods round out a meal. People living in a temperate climate generally avoid sugary, chemicalized foods, dairy products and red meat.
In contrast, there are an immense variety of foods, combinations and cooking styles in a macrobiotic diet. Variety is important in order to maintain our health and our open-minded view of life.
