5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Healthy Eating, 17 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macrobiotics for All Seasons (Paperback)
I've tried several wholefood-type regimes over the years but I never lost 2 stone until I tried macrobiotics! I was lucky enough to attend one of Marlene's courses, felt the difference within days and converted my husband too. We've been eagerly looking forward to this book to expand our menu, as many of the recommended ingredients are a bit unfamiliar and even once you have one recipe it's hard to know what else to do with them. A previous macrobiotic book I bought seemed to be for people who had never so much as boiled broccoli before; this is well pitched, enthusiastic and reassuring without being patronising, and calls on a huge range of flavours and nutritious ingredients.
There's all the background here that a novice (or improver) might need on food and health, very persuasively presented, plus a selection of "home remedies" for particular types of ailment, eg. a tea for high blood pressure and another for joint problems.
Once you venture into a health food shop and find that they have miso paste and 4 types of seaweed (sorry, sea vegetable) there on the shelf it becomes less daunting. They're not cheap, but I find the cost is largely offset by not buying meat or processed food (and less alcohol!). Macro Paella is really delicious and Greek-style Lentil Burgers very tasty - will be trying the salads and dressings once the weather actually warms up. The season demarcation is quite strict, reflected in the index which lists recipes alphabetically, but separately under each season - so if you're being naughty and eating out of season, you may have to skim through all 5 sections to find the dish (summer is divided into 2).
Barley cakes for tea tomorrow - can't wait!
