...about 2 weeks ago. I started on a macrobiotic diet last month after learning that this was the route my husband's mother would take in dealing with her cancer. I wanted to show my support for her, but all the macro books out there were so hard for me to understand. I didn't really know where to begin, so I was worried I wasn't getting the right balance of nutrition in my diet. The Kind Diet really helped me to make sense of it all. It just laid it all out there - good foods, bad foods, and WHY. WHY they were good or bad, WHY I should eat this way. Right after getting the book in the mail, I tried two recipes, both of which were really good. From then on, I knew I was gonna make it! When I freaked and needed something sweet (I'm a sweet-a-holic), I just dabbled in the vegan section a bit until I was satisfied to keep going (the chocolate peanut butter cups SAVED ME!). Macro is not too crazy different from what I grew up with since my mom is Japanese, but it was still a change for me. So that I would start off on the right foot, I decided to do an overhaul on my pantry. I rid it off all processed foods and sugar and filled it with nice jars of whole grains, dry beans, and brown rice syrup. We have some good resources in San Diego for vegan/health items, which I am grateful for.
Mostly just wanted to say THANK YOU ALICIA for making macro DOABLE for me. I have a whole blog about how much I love your book and how it stands out from the rest. I'd love to see some more posts about resources/restaurants/goodies in San Diego so that I can stay on track. I have yet to browse through the Superhero section though, so maybe I'll find something there.
SO happy to find you all here. Hope I can be of some help too!
