Mayumi's Kitchen - Madonna Macrobiotic
The moment I heard that Madonna's long time Macrobiotic chef, Mayumi Nishimura was coming out with a cook book, "Mayumi's Kitchen," I contacted the publisher to receive an advance copy.
Kodansha International kindly sent me one and I immediately dove in.
The book is an interesting, quick read documenting Mayumi's path to becoming a macrobiotic chef to the stars and contains a wealth of macro recipes to follow, meal by meal, on her eating program.
The photographs are stunning and reel you right in to the allure of macrobiotic eating.
Initially, I had the intention of following the eating plan, but quite honestly, I found diving into the macrobiotic lifestyle a bit overwhelming.
Instead, I have been integrating pieces of the diet and individual recipes into my current diet.
Some great ways to start incorporating macrobiotics into your life are to eat small portions of brown rice, introduce a variety of sea vegetables into your life and limit sweets.
I especially enjoy Mayumi's Miso Soup with Daikon and Onion recipe.
