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 wanted to let you know what an amazing and wonderful service you have. As a special education teacher who often puts in long days, and arriving home at the dinner hour, your meals are something wonderful to look forward to! I have suffered for many years with food allergies (wheat and dairy) and have often dreamed of a service such as yours which would enable me to:
enjoy meals that were satisying and delicious
and have meals prepared just for me
I have found most meal delivery plans are very costly, have unhealthy ingredients, and don't have foods I can safely eat. Your service is all of the above and more. You have such caring and wonderful service, being so personable to ensure that your customers are happy and pleased with their food. The delivery option makes it even more worthwile as the last thing a busy professional needs is to "make one more stop" on their way home. For many years I have gone to Whole Foods and spent a fortune on ingredients, identical to yours, then had to find just the right recipe, and chop, peel, and of course clean up. It was exhausting and made me rely on packgaged foods which were expensive, not filling, and unhealthy.
I cannot thank you enough for having this wonderful service. The best part of all is looking forward to my food waiting for me when I come home, knowing it was prepared with care and kindness.*
Earlier this week the drug regime that aimed at treating my persistent hypertension was changed. My physician dropped the drug, Diltiagem (180 mg daily), from my prescriptions. He feels it is likely that my 20lb weight loss, the consequence of my diet changes since early October 2007, is a likely reason my current blood pressure readings have been consistently normal for several weeks. Thus the decision to drop this drug from my medications list. The changes in my diet have been due to my working with Macro-Mediterranean Holistic Nutrition. They have helped me to achieve things I never would have thought possible at my age (77). I feel the best I have in years. The tireless energy and increased mental clarity have been things I wouldn't have expected. Thank You!*
I had a consultation with Jeremy & Maria over the phone and they designed a meal plan to target my specific conditions and then setup to have their personal chef start preparing the food they recommended for me.
I was worried about liking the food, but as soon as my first week of food was prepared for me, my fears went away. The recipes were so delicious that some of them (like the veggie burgers), I loved so much that I was hesitant to share them with my family. I also was not hungry ever and so the experience was not like with diets I had tried in the past. I had so much food, actually, that my daughter even started taking my leftovers to work for lunch. Once she tried the food, she realized, as I did, that it was as enjoyable as eating the food we used to eat before, but with added health benefits.
The improvements in my health were quick to come. At the end of just the first week of food from the meal service, my arthritis pain had significantly improved. After eating like this for a month and a half, I lost 19 lbs. Now after 4 months I have lost 26 lbs. I had suffered for a long time from a lot of pain in my stomach and lower digestive tract. That has completely stopped. I have had trouble for the past few years with my liver and now my tests are suddenly improving as is my diabetes control. The only change I have made is how I eat. I also have developed an overall sensation of feeling better that I found totally unexpected and is almost the best thing I have gotten out of changing the way I eat. From these improvements I am convinced that this is the best way I can be eating and plan to continue eating this way from now, going forward.
After just four weeks using the Macro-Mediterranean personal chef service I now feel well enough to go to the store and cook for myself and my family. Through using the personal chef service I now feel familiar with the food and feel confident that I can learn to make it for myself. I have been given a new lease on life and am enjoying every minute of it.
I hope that my story can help someone else who was suffering like me to get the help they need.*
After personally experiencing three months of rapid weight loss and failed diagnoses, my primary care physician suggested I try eating a macrobiotic diet. A daily journal of my eating habits and poor health events suggested my body was reacting as though everything I ate was an allergen. Biopsies eventually confirmed the widespread inflammation.
My physician put me in touch with Jeremy and Maria who helped me tremendously. Their insight into what changes in one’s lifestyle must take place, their availability and their patience and nurturing along the way, week after week, made the transition actually do able for me.
They supported me with readings, recipes, anecdotes and respect. The changes in my eating are still taking place as I come to accept that I must be fastidious in my dietary choices in order to maintain my health. I was unable to work for 3 months. I am now back at work and approaching the level of stamina I had previous to my body’s attack on me.*
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 .
