On this site you will find an abundance of recipes and tutorials, making it easy for you to cook healthy vegan meals which bring together a fusion of east and west.

Vegan Cooking

We have ideas and advice in abundance so please take a look around our website – it’s full of vegan recipes reflecting macrobiotic principles and a fusion of international influences. There is also advice, information and interviews with some of the world’s leading experts on food, nutrition and the effect it has on our bodies and our planet.

By changing to a vegan diet, you will change not only your world but the world around you too – isn’t that something?

Vegan Diet – the Interesting, Delicious and Colourful

Eating vegan food is fun. Times have moved on and eating a plant-based diet in the twenty first century is exciting and interesting – with food full of colour, flavour, goodness and ingredients from all over the world now available to all of us.

If you haven’t already tried it then you have come to the right place. You will feel the difference that eating a Macrobiotic Vegan diet makes to your wellbeing and life.

Or better still, why not sign up for our one-hour health consultations? We will meet with you, on a video call, so that we can find out about the food you are eating now, your general state of well-being and how to improve your food choices to feel better.

T. Colin CampbellFrom The Foreword of Marlene’s latest book Go Vegan
“Marlene Watson-Tara has been an unusually dedicated woman in the cause of furthering human welfare through eating food that matters. Her tradition, and that of her husband Bill, is drawn from their long-time association with the famous macrobiotic diet concept introduced in the West by Michio
and Aveline Kushi during the 1950s.”
