Here are few shots from my favourite place to eat.
It's a macrobiotic restaurant I found last year.
So yummy, and so sad to be leaving it when I go home!
I usually order the macro plate, unless the main dish is wheat gluten based
(unfortunate wheat allergy).
|Tofu with fresh salsa on lettuce.|
|Really yummy pressure cooked rice topped with black sesame.|
|Lotus Root and something else.... yum!|
In the winter I was in a good swing trying new recipes from my macro book.
Lately though, I have been a bit busy, so I've been keeping the meals at home simple.
For grains: Brown rice, and sometimes quinoa, millet or oats.
In the veggie department: fresh spring salads or steamed veggies, and a few stir frys.
Lots of greens, carrots, daikon, and broccoli.
For protein: some tempeh, tofu, or beans (often sauteed with greens).
Fat: sunflower seeds, flax, olive oil, chia seeds (thanks Dad!), or a sesame oil.
Simple foods are sometimes the best, aren't they?
Take some time today to breathe!
