Our Nourish program is intended to help your body maximize and maintain its potential for vibrant health.
You start with a macrobiotic staple of miso soup and brown rice for breakfast and then follow with macrobiotically-balanced, whole-foods, plant-based meals for lunch and dinner.*
I was having severe pain in my abdomen and my doctor diagnosed me with having gall stones. I did not want to have surgery, at least at that time, and she suggested a change in diet might help.
My doctor introduced me to Jeremy and Maria (J&M), who introduced me to the macrobiotic way of eating. They immediately e-mailed information to read about macrobiotics, and sent several simple recipes to get me started.
My husband was willing to change his way of eating with me... and so we started immediately. The recipes from Jeremy and Maria were simple, and once I found the ingredients, with help from J&M, were simple and quick to make. The most difficult part for me was cooking a new way, but once I settled in my mind to look at this as learning to cook for the first time, it became easier. The pain I was feeling in my abdomen was almost gone. J&M spoke with me weekly, encouraged me constantly.
As the weeks went by, more recipes arrived by e-mail, and J&M kept in touch with me. What was helpful is they asked me to keep a journal of what I was eating daily, e-mail it to them, along with questions I had, and they would respond letting me know what I was missing in my diet, and foods to add to it. Recipes were a constant, delicious, easy to make, and very much appreciated.
Soon, my husband and I noticed we were losing weight - what a bonus, especially for my husband who has always struggled with his weight and constantly trying new diets. The bonus.... this wasn't even a diet. We were enjoying what we were eating. We found we had more energy. We never felt that bloated feeling you have when you eat too much at dinner. And some of the recipes were so delicious, that we did eat a lot - just never felt bloated.
Jeremy & Maria taught us how to change our diets without having to become fanatics. We do not miss the foods we removed from our diet, don't even think about them.
J&M taught me a lot about the foods we eat, and how our system digests and uses the nutrients from them. We feel lucky to have met Jeremy and Maria, they have changed the way we look at food, and what to look for when checking ingredients. We are happy to have changed our way of eating and feeling much better about it. Can't even imagine eating the way we used to.
As I look back, J&M made the change in eating go quite smoothly.*
Not only did I lose about 20 pounds, my LDL is 40 while my HDL is 75*.
I just finished a lunch of the Smoked Tofu Salad - delicious! So far so good with the cucumber. I'll let you know if that changes. It seems that your food has a magical effect on my digestion: to this point, I haven't gotten sick from anything.*
Thank you for all the fabulous food! Being able to have this food prepared is supporting me in developing a healthier lifestyle overall, which is an important goal I set for myself. I think my body is functioning better overall, so I can focus on the things I want to. I feel physically good nearly every day, and that gives me more confidence, and a sense of steady energy throughout the day. I would bet money that my blood sugar is more stable throughout the day, every day, and that is a wonderful change for me.
Because I feel great and have more predictable energy, I've been able to do more. I've increased my exercise regime, which was another personal goal. I also have been able to focus well, and let emotions not take hold, so I can set my mind on what I want to.
As another bonus for me, not having to go to the grocery store and not having to cook for myself have given me more time during the day, so I'm able to take a couple of computer courses that I wanted, too!
I hope that this is useful for you to know. I'm a big fan of your food and your business.*
The Many Benefits of Miso
Miso & Brown Rice Breakfasts
Eating miso soup for breakfast helps wake up the digestive system after hours of rest, and the addition of soft, whole-grain brown rice stabilizes blood sugars, and provides lasting, integral energy throughout the morning.
An Eastern and Macrobiotic tradition. Our miso soup with kale and mushrooms is earthy and warming. It relaxes the stomach and aids in digestion. In the summer we also prepare a cucumber miso that can be enjoyed at room temperature.
Miso is one of the world’s oldest traditional probiotics. Regular consumption up to 3 times a day helps promote healthy intestinal flora that improve digestion, something which macrobiotics holds as fundamental to maintaining good health. Additionally, daily consumption of miso has been shown in studies to have significant protective effects against radiation, hypertension, and breast, colon, lung, liver, stomach and intestinal cancers .
