What is Macrobiotics?

19 Jan

The Macrobiotic diet is more than just a diet, it can be considered a way of life.

This is a very balanced and nutritious diet. It keeps you healthy (studies say if might prevent cancer and other degenerative diseases) and keeps you at your ideal weight.

Macrobiotics include lot’s of grains (50%) and vegetables (30%) which have to be well chewed. Nuts, legumes, beans and miso soup (15%) must also be included. It can be similar to being a vegetarian, but in this case fish is permitted in small quantities (5%).

Foods are consumed in their most natural state. Refined and processed foods, dairy, sugar, alcohol, coffee, meats, eggs and poultry are off the list.

To eat more like a macrobiotic try incorporating all kinds of different grains to your diet: brown rice, barley, buckwheat and sea vegetables like Kombu, Wakame, Noru and Hijiki.

And remember eat healthy, be happy…
