I have started on the Super Hero diet. and have stuck to it. Is there anyone in Calgary, Alberta, Canada that I could talk to.
Wondering about the definition of macrobiotics ? Is that a diet that focuses on whole foods grown in your local area ? Is that the essences of it?
Hello from Ottawa. My hubs and I have been vegan for a long time now and really love the clean eating superhero plan.
Macrobiotics is eating whole foods as local as possible and as cleanly as possible (organic and little/no seasoning or oils). One tip I have for seasoning the grains is to cook them in homemade veggie stock as well as using home grown herbs like basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage, etc. I personally feel you have to modify the superhero diet to your location and dietary preferences. My husband and I occasionally eat miso, but we do eat a lot of pro-biotics in the form of lacto-fermented veg like saurkraut, radishes, carrots, which we make at home. Another thing we do is watch other clean eaters cooking shows on youtube for inspiration. Our favorite is okraw.com on youtube or the vegan zombie also on youtube. Another thing to do is always have some plain cooked lentils on hand to throw into whatever you are eating it can really make a difference! Today for lunch we are having collard greens and broccoli with wild rice, it actually is addictive believe it or not! Keep it up!
Oh Another question???
My parents live in Ottawa so I visit there. They live in the Hunt Club area near the airport.
Do you know of a health food store with Vegan supplies near there? I would need to pick up some things when I am visiting. Whole foods in the States has great stuff, my local health food store has a great deli. What about Ottawa??
