Invisible worlds, friends and enemies

This weekend, Hiroyuki and Mie Naka were in Honolulu to do a seminar about macrobiotic cooking and they gave some amazing lectures as well. Hiroyuki was talking extensively about the invisible world. I’m still reflecting on their visit, their lectures, and my talks with them. Meanwhile, I’ve also just downloaded the current version of Macrobiotic […]

Interesting quote about $

I finished reading a book called “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T Harv Eker. He’s (not?) macrobiotic per say, but his text describes macrobiotic principles of energy in relation to money and business. It’s an excellent read, with exercises to do.

Yummy Yams

This is a recipe from The Natural Epicurean. I tried it the other night, and our knees got wobbly because it was so unbelievably delicious. I used the least amount of sweetener called for in the recipe, and it still was succulently sweet. SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE WITH MAPLE PECAN TOPPINGby Dawn Pallavi Serves: 8–10 When […]

Current Goals

My current goals are to: 1) Get more sleep. I’ve set a goal to be in bed by 10:30 to 11:00 pm every night. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends and paying for it. It’s amazing how much better I feel with 8 as opposed to 6 hours of sleep, and I don’t […]
