Macrobiotics is a way of life, based on ideas about the interconnectedness of all things and encompasses ways of eating, thinking and seeing the world. This “Ideal Diet for Humans” is based on whole grains, with plenty of beans and vegetables, and small amounts of fat and sugar (coming from grain malt syrups). Animal foods are not generally included, although small amounts of fish are eaten by many practitioners in Japan. Cooking methods are gentle and simple, designed to maximise the natural flavours of the food and retain nutrition.
