- Macrobiotic Diet Meals
- By: MARCUS RYAN
Because the macrobiotic diet is almost certain to be a huge departure from your normal way of eating, switching to it may at first be a real challenge. But eating macrobiotic, like adopting any other dietary change, will soon become second nature if you just give it time.
And giving the macrobiotic time will reward you, according the diet’s proponents, with a longer life full of energy and less troubled with cancer or other serious health issues. What will you be eating on the macrobiotic diet?
The foundation of your diet will be locally-grown natural foods, with lots of seasonal fruits and vegetables, and lesser amounts of seafoods and fish. If you have a local source for organically produced meats, you can include small amounts of it in your macrobiotic diet.
Seasonal eating is an important part of the macrobiotic diet, and you won’t find yourself eating spring greens during the fall because that would mean the greens had to be shipped to you from a different part of the world. You also won’t be eating frozen produce, because it lacks the nutritional punch of fresh.
So your macrobiotic diet will be unique to the foods available at different seasons in your area. But here is a general outline of what one of your macrobiotic meals should contain”
One unprocessed organic grain One lean organic protein One sea vegetable Other local organic vegetables, raw or very lightly cooked Pickles An occasional dessert
You should pick the foods for each of your meals so that you achieve a variety of textures form smooth to crunchy to sticky, and try to have a variety of tastes as well.
Here’s a sample “winter” macrobiotic meal:
Grain: Sticky rice Protein: Fried fish seasoned with freshly grated ginger Sea vegetable: Shio Kombu Vegetable: beets for their sweet/sour taste Pickle: Takuan Dessert: Pudding of winter squash
Let’s switch seasons now, and prepare something which uses some of that wonderful local produce. (Moat people on the macrobiotic diet think that summer is by far the easiest season for menu planning):
Grain: Fresh corn polenta Protein: Red lentils cooked to a creamy texture Sea vegetable: Arame with chives and sunflower seeds Vegetable: Green salad with freshly grated carrots Pickle: Chinese cabbage with sliced radishes and fresh sliced lemons Dessert: Lemon pudding
These two sample macrobiotic meals will give you a good idea of how the diet combines different textures and tastes to fulfill the “yin and yang” concept which is one of its foundations.
It may take a while for you to learn how to combine these foods successfully at each meal, but the health benefits of the macrobiotic diet will make your efforts worth the time.
