Life in Balance is one of my favorite cookbooks. It is a good introduction to macrobiotic and plant based cooking. I have many cookbooks in this line of cooking but Meg's book is one I keep on coming back to whenever I need to reground myself in healthy food. Macrobiotic cooking is a bit of an acquired taste, I think, if you are coming directly from a standard American diet. But ultimately you will feel so much better the more you incorporate this eating into your lifestyle. And although this is cooking from scratch (knowing how to cook yourself is good though), the recipes are not overly complex and challenging. There are many very good recipes but I have to put a plug in for a dessert: Masao's Blueberry Cake. You do not need to be leaning to veganism or macrobiotics to love this recipe. We make this with frozen small Maine blueberries and my entire family can devour it on the spot. In this recipe, as in many of Meg's recipes, better health choices and really good taste can sit together in the same pan.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
