I got my The Hip Chick's Guide to Macrobiotics book from Amazon and am now very keen to go macrobiotic. Except that Livewire isn't. One interesting thing the book says is that baked products are very yang and irritate the liver and make you irritable and as refined flour is out anyway it recommends avoiding pies, pastries, bread etc, at least for a while. yikes. But that explains why noodles are ok, they are rehydrated in their cooking therefore not so drying like baked products. interesting.Anyway, Jessica Porter, the author, says that to start just make sure you eat some whole grains every day. She says that their energy will bring you into a solid stable neutral centre which you will notice after 30 days of sticking with it. So I'm giving it a try. brown rice, millet, buckwheat and wild rice.... they're delicious so it's been quite enjoyable.
