    Personally I like the macrobiotic how-to videos on youtube better than a lot of the recipe websites. I haven't found an outstanding website but occasionally you'll find featured recipes on the website for Casa De Luz in Austin, TX and also Eden Foods' website.

    Hi!! I can definitely see how the ingredients could be hard to locate locally ;)

    A great macrobiotic cookbook is The Self-Healing Cookbook by Kristina Turner, although you'd need some of the obscure ingredients to pull the recipes together. Also, I like the sauces in the Casa de Luz cookbook. But there are great free recipes on youtube.com and even edenfoods.com.

    Due to a family history of ovarian cancer, and a dramatic rise in breast cancer in women, I've cut out most soy in my diet (just in case). Macrobiotic uses fermented soy (a great natural probiotic) but sometimes I alter the recipes to avoid it. I also eat outside of the 'macro diet,' just as wholesome as possible! Hope this helps!! Macrobiotic is soooo healthy!

    Thanks for visiting my page. Your garden comments made me laugh. Thanks. Good way to begin a day! Just keep trying. You'll learn with every mistake. I've been gardening for years; but this year is the biggest garden I've tried. Maybe you can find some good gardening books at a local bookstore. I was lucky and got most of mine used and they cost me nearly nothing since I turned in alot of old ones cluttering up my house. Rodale Press put out some excellent ones. Many are out of print. My dad gave me a really old one by Ortho (yeah.... how unlikely) that I really like. It's called All About Vegetables - Western Edition 1973. There is alot of good info in a book out of Berkely called How To Grow More Vegetables by John Jeavons. Well, hope it helps.... and enjoy your garden. It's been such a blessing to us in more ways than the food it provides us.... but I'm rambling. Talk to ya later.

    Hi, saw you on the Whole Foods group. I'm not vegan, but do agree that Americans eat way more meat than they need. For that reason, I grow a large garden (also one of my kids, who is now grown, started reacting to chemicals on store produce), subscribe to Vegetarian times to learn how to cook with a greater variety, and now the Whole Foods SP group.

    I have wheat come up in my yard every year, and may soon try growing a patch for fun. I noticed you grind grain? Any suggestions on what works best? I think years ago I tried using my grandmothers old hand grinder. It worked, the flour was sooo tasty, BUT it took forever to get enough for one loaf of bread. Chuckle. We won't even talk about the time my DD and I spent pressing the grain from the seed heads.
