Cooking With The Seasons
I’m happy to announce (again) that my first ever eCookbook will be available starting Monday February 22nd. It’s available for pre-order at a discounted price until then. That’s 19 recipes plus information on macrobiotics, the 5 Element Theory, and how to nourish your Spring element. Even if you are not practicing macrobiotics you will still love this cookbook and it’s delicious, healthy, vegan recipes. And for only $5.99 until Monday!
The 5 Element (or 5 Transformation) Theory is an amazing philosophy that everyone should check out. It will give you a better understanding of your own body and the foods that nourish it. If you want to be “green”or an environmentalist, following the seasons and eating seasonally is your greatest ally. If you want to take your health to the next level, studying macrobiotics and practicing it’s techniques will allow you to do that. Even if you don’t want to go whole hog (as Jessica Porter calls it), you can incorporate macrobiotic principles in your daily life that jive with you. Let’s be honest…we can all improve our diets in some way (I’ve got a lot of work to do myself!). Whether it be eating less processed food, eating a regular meals times, eating more local and seasonal, or just getting in those whole grains and greens – we can all benefit from the knowledge that macrobiotics has to share.
It isn’t as scary as people think it is! Do I look unhappy or deprived? No way! Do I enjoy eating and trying all kinds of new foods and cooking techniques? Yes way! You are probably already using some of the techniques and didn’t even know it. If you want to learn more or dip your toe in check out The Kind Diet, The Hip Chick’s Guide to Macrobiotics, Love, Sanae, and Macrobiotic For Dummies. To learn about the 5 Element Theory the best book is Staying Healthy With The Seasons. Please click on the link below to check out these books on Amazon.
