Hello I am Gabriele Kushi
My work is to educate and inspire you to emphasize seasonal natural foods and sustainable living.
Foods eaten in season eliminate unhealthy cravings and support a healthy slim body and a peaceful mind. The mantra that I follow is no sugar, include healthy fat, energy supportive whole grains, vitamin laden greens and root vegetables as well as mineral rich sea vegetables, protein foods like legumes, beans and bean products, seeds, nuts, as well as seasonal fruits, and probiotic rich fermented foods.

Hato Mugi Barley Salad with Lime Vinaigrette
Hato Mugi (a/k/a Job’s Tears or Chinese barley) is a gluten free barley type whole grain. Scientists have identified a compound coixenolide that suppresses cancer cells and another, germanium that has anti-carcinogenic properties. Barley is also known to help with diabetes, by controlling the blood sugar level. Among other things, the rich fiber content helps reduce blood cholesterol, improves colon function and promotes weight loss.
Ingredients for 3 serving
1/2 cup Hato Mugi
2 cups red radishes, quartered & Radish tops or other greens, sliced
¼-cup chives or sliced scallions, ¼ -tsp. sea salt
Vinaigrette: Sea salt, Pepper, 1-2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, Lime juice to taste (or 2 drops Lime Vitality essential cooking oil (I get mine here)
Preparation: Wash Hato Mugi thoroughly and soak for 6-8 hours or overnight. After soaking rinse and replace water. Bring to a boil add sea salt and simmer till Hato Mugi is soft and texture is to your liking, about 20-30 minutes. Remove and set aside. Meanwhile wash radishes and radish (or other) greens and separate stems from leaves. Slice greens into very thin pieces. Slice radishes. Steam the radishes and greens separately slightly, leave them still crisp. Mix all the vegetables together with the Hato Mugi in a serving bowl. Add the vinaigrette and adjust to your taste. Let the dish marinate for a bit. Serve room temperature. Garnish with fresh chives.

“Gabriele’s Wellness Program was a deep and powerful experience for me both in regards to physical health and in regards to tapping more deeply into my own intuition and understanding of self. I will carry with me for years to come the very practical knowledge of macrobiotics and yoga she imparted. Looking back, having worked with her so closely for such an extended period of time, allowed me to integrate macrobiotics as a holistic lifestyle into my every day living. In this way, she crafted our sessions and coaching to truly meet the needs of my body and soul. I am very grateful for her outstanding counsel!” Sarah H, Montana, USA
"Kushi's Kitchen is comparable to the best Macrobiotic schools." Anna M. cooking teacher and personal chef, MA
