Some years ago, I had a good friend who cooked Macrobiotic Food. It was always surprisingly delicious. Surprising only because it was so simple and without any fuss. Just good ingredients, cooked tenderly.
This is my version of one of those meals. I regard macrobiotic food as kind and undemanding. It’s calming, restorative, gentle on the digestive system and very good to eat.
I thought it might be of general interest to include some macrobiotic recipes in this blog.
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about the philosophy of Macrobiotic food:
“Followers of the traditional macrobiotic approach believe that food and food quality powerfully affect health, well-being, and happiness, and that a traditional, locally based macrobiotic diet has more beneficial effects than others. The modern macrobiotic approach suggests choosing food that is less processed.
One goal of modern macrobiotics is to become sensitive to the actual effects of foods on health and well-being, rather than to follow dietary rules and regulations. Dietary guidelines, however, help in developing sensitivity and an intuitive sense for what sustains health and well-being.
