A vegetable broth made from organically grown vegetables can be an excellent source of essential electrolytes. Ionic minerals are the key to maintaining good health. My broth is incredibly nutritious and a health-boosting food that is very easy to make. There is no – absolutely no – need to use the bones of our animal kingdom for the so-called miracle cure-all that humans hanker after. The three “magic” ingredients in my mineral broth come from plants: Kombu seaweed, dried shiitake mushrooms, and dried daikon

Tahini is made from sesame seeds that are soaked in water and then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels. The crushed seeds are soaked in salt water, causing the bran to sink. The floating kernels are skimmed off the surface, toasted, and ground to produce an oily paste.

Butternut squash tastes so good when you simply toss it with your favourite herbs, some sea salt, roast it with garlic and serve as a delicious side dish. Soups, casseroles, and stews all made with sweet and golden butternut squash. You’ll love how it tastes in muffins, pies, risottos, and pasta dishes, too.

Quiso-Miso-Broth-with-RamenNoodles-1.jpg

Miso is a fermented soybean paste used to flavour various dishes, but most widely used as a stock to season soups. Miso’s natural fermentation process creates a combination of enzymes that strengthen and nourish the intestinal tract. As a result, the blood that nourishes the balance of the body is much stronger.

The best Enzyme-rich foods are those that are sprouted (seeds and legumes). Both deliver not only ‘top notch’ nutrition but boost our enzyme levels naturally and support our health. Sprouting increases the enzyme content in these foods tremendously.

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.

The topic of nutrition has become a bewildering landscape of cultural myth and vested interest. There is an urgent need for a new approach to human diet, one that cuts through the commercial PR, the political caution and the nutritional confusion.

The macrobiotic dietary principles have been developed over the past 60 years in America, Europe and Asia. They are based on the philosophy of Asian medicine as practiced in China and Japan. These concepts reflect physical, environmental and social observations for a period of over 5,000 years.  On the surface the philosophy bears little relationship of Western nutritional science yet the conclusions are remarkably similar.

wholegrain-1024x576.jpg

The most important dietary change you can make is to integrate whole cereal grains (particularly short grain brown rice) into your daily diet. This should be a staple for everyone. Simply put, whole grains and grain products are the cornerstones of any healthy, whole foods diet. In our friend Verne Varona’s fantastic book ‘Macrobiotics for Dummies’ he explains the power of grain in a way that a five-year-old could understand
