Making change quick and easy is explained in depth in my book Macrobiotics for all Seasons, available Many of the ingredients listed below have been used in various cultures for many, many years.  Some of these ingredients may be new to you so this list will give you a general guideline on their usage. When you follow a diet that does not create nutritional stress you energy and vibrancy will soar.  Many of our clients cannot believe the increase in energy they experience in such a short time switching from a meat and dairy based diet to a wholefoods plant based vegan diet.

It seems that everyone is stressed out. Even children talk about being stressed. I am sure that the incidence of stress in America and Western Europe is more pervasive than the Swine Flu (or whatever euphemism we are using for it to take attention from where it came from). I am surprised that governments have not issued Stress Alerts.

As a long time promoter of seaweed I am sure I must have been a mermaid in my last life. At the tender age of 15 I discovered the benefits of ‘kelp’ and much to the amusement of my friends I incorporated seaweed into my life in so many ways. Cooking with it, bathing in it and grinding it to a powder to make facials.

One of the most controversial and curious subjects in modern nutrition is the place of animal protein in a healthy diet. The evidence has been building over the past twenty years that our reliance of meat and dairy foods are a mistake. Most epidemiological studies indicate that excessive consumption of meat and dairy is a primary factor in most degenerative disease.

The foods that are most needed when the weather is warm are salads, fruits, green vegetables and lighter cooking.  A quick vegetable stir fry is one of our favourites with a huge fresh salad and one of my delicious dressings.

Last week, Bill and myself attended the LAUDATO SI conference at the University of East Anglia. It was an incredible eye-opener in so many ways. As long time animal advocates we felt compelled to use our voice and share with the panel and the audience our thoughts on why humans complicate such simple matters as GOING VEGAN.

Eating bio-sprouts and Microgreens brings a powerhouse of nutrients to your dinner plate. Microgreens are simply greens, lettuces, and herbs that are harvested when they are quite young, generally when they are approximately an inch tall.

As a life long advocate of health and wellness; (working as a 12 year old after school) merchandising the grains, beans and pulses in our local food store, (I think counts!!!!). As a 60 year old woman, I feel the same excitement about my life as I did sorting through all the beans and grains in the store.

Never in modern history has there been such an interest in food and at the same time, such a lack of confidence in the basic quality of food. In my four decades of teaching I see the mass confusion around diet and nutrition escalating each year. Change today for a better tomorrow. If you want to change your future health you need to change your present health to one than enlivens you daily. Join my living with the seasons cooking class this month here in Esher.
