Originally published in 1985, The Macrobiotic Way is a classic in its field. It is the definitive guide to macrobiotics, an approach to diet and lifestyle that promotes both inner peace and harmony with others and the environment. Now updated, it covers not only the central dietary principles, nutrition, and foods but also cooking techniques, essentials for a macrobiotic kitchen, menus and recipes, along with exercise, life philosophy, home and lifestyle, and the role of macrobiotics in healing.
Michio Kushi studied macrobiotics with the founder of the macrobiotic movement, George Ohsawa, and is one of the world's leading exponents of the macrobiotic lifestyle. He is the founder of two internationally acclaimed educational organizations, the East West Foundation and the Kushi Institute, and has written widely on macrobiotics and related topics.
