The goals of macrobiotic are the realization of planetary health and happiness, world peace and human evolution. Macrobiotic, derived from the Greek word macrobios (large life), is living and eating in harmony with nature. Macrobiotic teachings embrace the 5,000-year-old philosophy of yin (expansion) and yang (contraction), the building blocks of life that are found in all phenomena in varying proportion including food, body types, organs, energy lines, and so forth.
Macrobiotics supports traditional foods that people ate before the dawn of our modern civilization. Gabriele Kushi's Kitchen emphasizes the Macrobiotic approach to natural and whole foods such as grains, land and sea vegetables, legumes, beans and bean products, seasonal fruits, seeds, nuts and vegetable oils. These foods eaten in season provide a healthy body and a peaceful mind. Foods to be avoided in excess are refined and processed products like sugar and white flour, stimulants like nicotine, animal products, meats or dairy, as these seem in excess according to scientific studies seem to contribute to sickness and disharmony.
Macrobiotic cooking techniques such as steaming, pressure cooking, sauteing, baking, juicing, sprouting, pickling, soaking, fermenting/raw are used to enhance the nutritional value and energy of seasonal food. The macrobiotic food pyramid and plate guidelines (proportional as well as food-wise) should be modified depending on one's individual health, personal needs, climate, environment and other considerations. Macrobiotics differs from a vegetarian/vegan/raw diet or many other diets, which do not take such considerations. For more detailed guidance on how to study Macrobiotics and adjust your personal food changes, it is recommended that you seek advice from a qualified macrobiotic consultant.

"Gabriele Kushi carries with her the light of her teachers, that of traditional macrobiotics woven with an expansive knowledge of other cultures and philosophies. Her program has truly been a wonderful gift. She’s been a valuable “health coach,” guiding me toward more healthful changes in my food, cooking and lifestyle ... and in a much more gentle manner than I normally do for myself. Gabriele also possesses a keen intuition and unique blend of structure and flexibility—critical skills when coaching a woman over a six-month time frame!" Lisa S., MN
