Summary

More than thirty years ago George Ohsawa introduced the principles of macrobiotics, a diet based on whole grains, vegetables, and fresh foods. Now, Lisa Turner summarizes these principles and provides practical information on how to use natural ingredients to plan healthy meals. One hundred twenty palate-pleasing dishes use the best macrobiotic principles adapted to our Western lifestyle and taste.
