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…

If you want to go to a super healthy and delicious restaurant, this is definitely the one to go to.

A contemporary macrobiotic restaurant, where almost everything on their menu is organic and everything is fresh, healthy and free of harmful chemicals.

Order anything you want from the menu, I’ve tried almost everything and it’s all delicious! The juices are also great.

In LA they have 2 locations

Beverly Hills and Melrose

If you’re in Mexico City I have to recommend Nick San, I always get the green salad, the grilled vegetables and a side of brown rice. The sashimi are quite nice as well.
