Macrobiotics and Other Things "Re-Imagined"

This is a really great link about all the new macrobiotic restaraunts that are sprouting up all over Los Angeles.


It seems "macro" is becoming hip again, but they are calling it "progressive macrobiotics" I wonder if that's macrobiotics "re-imagined" like something else that Dirk was involved in that was "re-imagined" and probably not...

Starbuck's Perfect Oatmeal

Posted 03-04-2009 at 09:44 PM by shastastar

I find it extremely ironic that Starbucks is the only international chain with a drive thru where you can order plain unsweetened oatmeal ( in about a 140 calorie portion) for $2.45 a cup in the states and get sliced nuts and dried fruit on the side ( they will also give you a small bag of poison, I mean brown sugar, but skip that, you don't need it and it's very non macro).

Now I previously blogged on the evils of the drive thru... but this is almost an acceptable macro alternative...

A Positive Swimsuit Shopping Experience….

Posted 02-22-2009 at 01:18 PM by shastastar

Okay really…...Swimsuit shopping is demoralizing as hell even from my honest brown rice induced macrobiotic perspective..

So I went to get a new swimsuit this weekend, and I thought (stupidly) hey I can wear a size 2 jeans now….. this should be fun…. I mean…. The crunches are paying off… I’ve almost got the four pack back ( I never had a six pack, even when I was a gymnast, so the four pack is good) I weigh less than I did in high school, so this should really be a treat...

The Paradigm Shift that Blows My Mind......

Posted 01-28-2009 at 09:56 PM by shastastar
Updated 01-29-2009 at 01:44 PM by shastastar

A while after I started macrobiotics, people who knew me well and saw me frequently started asking me if I was well, or if I had been ill. The only thing that had changed physically was the way of eating, which led to some weight loss along with the rediscovered need and love for exercise. The biggest change was emotional and spiritual. I wasn’t stressed / hurried / complaining / completely task focused, and looking for some elusive perfection. I was in the moment, smiling, and enjoying life,...

Macrobiotics, Meditation, and the Exercise of Menstruation

Posted 12-19-2008 at 10:53 PM by shastastar
Updated 12-20-2008 at 03:11 PM by shastastar

So this is my last installment on this topic at least for now. I wanted to finish with this because it has nothing to do with Kushi or Oshawa, and everything to do with our monthly journey through life as women. It is important ( mostly so that I don't get sued) that you consult a doctor before beginning any sort of regular exercise program.

Exercise in the macrobiotic practice is traditionally very limited. We know that when healing with macrobiotics, exercise is limited to the...
