Macrobiotic Bowl

A Macrobiotic bowl is a great way to fill up on organic wholefoods. Macrobiotics stems from the Buddhist principles of the yin and yang balance. I love seeing a mixture of colours on my plate, it’s like nature’s form of art. You can enjoy this delicious dish with friends and double up on portion to have some for lunch the next day!

    Hi Madeleine, I am allergic to Black beans, do you know an alternative to these that I could use but still getting similar nutritional value? Thank you, Sophie x

      Hi babe, maybe try pinto beans instead? xx

    Madeleine, my husband loves this dish! (I do too!) This was scrumptious and filling without making us feel heavy. Thanks for making macrobiotic cooking so easy.

    Where can you buy edamame beans from? Im really struggling to find them and this looks so good I want to try it!

    • Madeleine Shaw

      Hi babe, you can get them from Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s or Ocado! You can find them in the freezer section. xx

    Hi Madeleine, this looks gorgeous, may have to try this! :) Do you have any tips or foods best for indigestion, I suffer with dyspepsia and things like too much caffeine can set it off. Are there any foods you’d recommend which would really help settle the stomach? I do eat very healthy and follow your glow guides type of plan most of the time. Hope you can advise, thanks!
