Much of the information in this book is inspired by the macrobiotic way of life. This system of health care and personal development originated in Japan but is based on a traditional understanding of diet, health and well-being recommended by ancient peoples from all over the world. It is a modern interpretation that is not therapeutic but directed more to general daily use and health maintenance.
Eating a healthy diet doesn’t need to be complicated or boring. That is one of the main messages of Macrobiotics for all Seasons, a simple and common sense approach to leading edge nutrition that supports health and is delicious as well. Marlene Watson – Tara guides you through a delightful fusion of modern nutrition, traditional wisdom and common sense that brings health, healing and environmental sensibility back to the kitchen.
