I encourage beginners to get a great understanding from this lovely author.
I await new cookbooks from her!
Even for those of us who have been practicing for a while, it is a good review.
The recipes alone are a reason to have this book.
Everything Guide to Macrobiotics explains important topics in a very easy to understand manner including yin/yang and how to balance naturally, chi (energy) simply by selecting different foods or combining several foods, such as why to use lemon juice with fish or why it is important to drink wine with meat but not certain other alcohols (yes, in many cases it is very healthy to enjoy a single glass of quality red wine with a steak dinner.)
Everything Guide also includes approx 150 recipes (many of which are easy to prepare) along with a suggested weekly menu for each of the 4 seasons (again a subject which is sorely lacking from our cultural knowledge...)
I am an obese woman who was formerly an athlete until sustaining a life-altering injury then a cascading series of medical complications led to several life-threatening diagnosis and am now once again disabled, permanently. Yet, despite not being able to work out and NOT believing in starvation fad diets either, I have garnered information from Everything Guide to Macrobiotics that has helped me on my journey to eat smarter to help me lose this stubborn weight. I am currently on target to lose 10% in 8 weeks, that's quite an accomplishment!
