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.

Although it looks outdated, the principles described in the book are great. Good book, nice intro to macrobiotical cooking. Would recommend.

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...
