This is the book I was looking for, after poring over it back in the first wave of macrobiotic living took hold with Ohsawa and a rather large following. Then my typical American lifestyle, full of stress, led me to the millenium where I was tipping the scales at 230! It's been a rollercoaster since then, but now, after nearly a month on macrobiotics (more powerful than any antibiotics) I am enjoying very good health, and weight is falling off in chunks. I am down to 180 (from 210) and have another 25 to go, God willing.

My typical food regime:

*Breakfast: steamed kasha with organic brown rice, a cup of fruit soy yoghurt (Whole Soy Co. #1!), Japanese twig tea, (a superb coffee substitute that you can buy on Amazon for $14 a lb., which lasts a year). And for pastry substitutes, I eat some mochi, a fabulous brown rice block available in health food stores that puffs up like mini-turnovers--available at health food stores)--try the Cinnamon Raisin--fabulous. But only eat a 1-inch strip at breakfast! Then I follow with some outdoor exercises.

*Lunch: Miso-salmon soup made with any kind of organic veggies. Two bowls if I am still hungry. (Miso is not dangerous to hypertension, it reduces it (newest studies show no connnection between salt intake and hypertension). I had 170-130 and now it's exactly 120-80--just another smear by the FDA and the AMA).

*Dinner: Organic brown rice, quinoa, kasha, or all three, with stir-fried organic vegetables, with apples added for flavor in place of heavily-salted of food.With a very light workout and a nice, brisk 3-mile walk, in addition to a complete macrobiotic regime, I am feeling less tense, no migraines or cystic acne or arthritic or sciatic pain. That's enough "scientific" proof for me.

The book was great. I was a frequent diner at Samsara, Michel Abesera's restaurant in the east village, in the 70's. The recipes brought back many memories...
