Jessica and Christine make it all fun. The Aiharas and Micho Kushi take you back to the roots of the macrobiotic movement, and Julia Ferre gives you solid basic recipe info so you can add your own flourishes and still get both the health and good flavor of your food.
Online you will learn a great deal and enjoy the learning at Macrobiotics America. David and Cynthia Briscoe have lived and taught the macrobiotic lifestyle for many years. David is the nutritionist I went to see when I realized I had to make a right turn with my health. Their web site will give you a good place to start with macrobiotics.
You might also drop by Denny Waxman’s site. He is an Internationally known speaker and teacher of macrobiotics, and he has a lot of knowledge to share. I haven’t read his book yet, but I’ll get around to it.
Now you know almost as much as I do. Let’s give it a few months and then compare notes. Whether you just enjoyed learning a bit about very special food appreciation, or you’ve found important information for yourself or a loved one, thank you for your interest.
