What will I find in The Macrobiotic Action Plan?

In The Macrobiotic Action Plan, Your MAP to Greater Health & Happiness, you'll learn about the litmus test to help determine the best choice of foods, namely, those which provide the greatest sources of energy with the least waste ~ personally and ecologically.

The MAP is not an 'eat this, not that' restrictive diet plan, rather, it's more like an operating system to help you feel more clear and empowered about how to make the best choices for your particular needs.  A macrobiotic diet is a more nuanced approach to eating, choosing foods based more on their intrinsic energies, and not just their 'nutritional resume.'

In ancient China, the emperor would only pay the Chinese physician if he kept him well.  They were not paid if the emperor got sick!

Traditionally, the household chef was responsible for keeping family members in good health.   In both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, the best foods for each individual are based on their inherent constitution and current condition.  Imbalances or illnesses can generally be reversed through the use of common foods, special remedies, herbs, spices, and adjustments to how foods are prepared.

In macrobiotics, we center our choices around primary (or principal) and complementary food choices.  Food choices, herbs and spices, and cooking styles can all be adjusted seasonally, and personally to help restore and maintain a healthy immune system, and enjoy balanced energy, moods, and a happy, healthy life!

What type of food can I eat according to The Macrobiotic Action Plan?

Traditional populations world wide have been observed and found to follow identifiable patterns of eating that helped them thrive for generations. Macrobiotics is based on these Universal principles of balance.  It is a more orderly approach to eating than typically found in modern Western approaches to diet and nutrition. 

The principal foods in The Macrobiotic Action Plan include a variety of whole grains, greens and vegetables, and beans and legumes (or 'grains, greens and beans'), along with fruits, seeds, nuts, miso soups, seaweeds, and special condiments.  

While this is similar to what you will find in my Whole-Foods, Plant-Based 21-Day Health & Weight Loss Challenge, FREE Ebook, The MAP dives deeper into the why's and how to's for creating a balanced, healthy diet for your needs.  It's more of an operating system for self-healing, putting you in the driver's seat to know when and how to make appropriate adjustments and tweaks to your diet to help you thrive.

While many earlier macrobiotic books and counselors recommended more restrictive diets intended for people healing from cancer and other chronic illnesses, The Macrobiotic Action Plan is a more simple, flexible approach making it more adaptable to personal needs, budgets and preferences.
